Live Coverage: Trump Trial; Defense Continues Witness Testimony

  • Defense witness Robert Costello, who was called “contemptuous” by Judge Juan Merchan yesterday, is back on the stand today after being reprimanded for his behavior while testifying. The judge also threatened to strike all of Costello’s testimony from the record if he continues to act out in court.
  • Today could be the last day of witness testimony. The prosecution rested yesterday, and Donald Trump’s attorneys have not said that the former president will testify in his own defense.
  • But that doesn’t mean closing arguments are set for this week. The judge has told both sides that they should expect to deliver their summations next Tuesday, after the Memorial Day weekend.
