Defense Rests Trump chooses not to testify

What a coward. Whines and cries about being gagged and not being able to tell his side. Then chooses not to testify.

What a loser

"Defense lawyers for Donald Trump rested their case at his criminal hush money trial Tuesday without calling the former president to testify.

Trump’s decision not to take the witness stand was not a surprise, as testifying carries serious risks for any criminal defendant, particularly for one with a tendency to speak off the cuff and undercut his prior statements, as he has shown in testimony in other, civil matters.


Trump had previously said he was “absolutely” willing to testify in the case, where he is accused of falsifying business records related to reimbursing his then-personal lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen for paying porn star Stormy Daniels $130,000 to keep quiet about an alleged sexual tryst with Trump.

“Your honor, the defense rests,” Trump’s lawyer Todd Blanche told Manhattan Supreme Court Judge Juan Merchan."

This makes no sense at all.

I thought ole “Honest Don” couldn’t wait to testify to clear his name.

Of course, the truth is his crackpot “legal team”, as incompetent as they are, know what perjury is and wouldn’t let him go near the stand because they KNOW he will he will perjure himself. He just can’t help it - he’s clinically unable to be truthful.

Inside of six weeks he will have his mouth-breathing base believing that the crooked judge violated his rights by not allowing him to testify. And they will repeat it enough times actually say it with a straight face.

You poor, poor lot of victims.

And I guarantee the oversized pussy will not appear in that debate either. RIGGED!

They are all out there still screaming about how the judge wouldn't let him testify.

These people based on their posts on here believe every Fakebook meme they read but can't read a transcript or an article to save their lives.

And the ones that post on here are smarter than half the Trump supporters who cant' afford a computer.

This country is truly doomed by stupidity.

See idiots like you just keep repeating Trumps lies.

Despite the truth.

Trump was gagged which specifically barred him from naming court workers, and individuals.

He was free to declare his innocence or testify.

He chose not to testify knowing he had no excuse.

Whose truth, yours?

Here is the order's text - " THEREFORE, it is hereby ORDERED, that the People's motion for a restriction on extrajudicial statements by the Defendant is GRANTED to the extent that Defendant is directed to refrain from the following:
a. Making or directing others to make public statements about known or reasonably foreseeable witnesses concerning their potential participation in the investigation or in this criminal proceeding;
b. Making or directing others to make public statements about (1) counsel in the case other than the District attorney, (2) member:s of the court's staff and the District Attorney's staff, or (3) the family members of any counsel or staff member, if those statements are made with the intent to materially interfere with, or to cause others to materially interfere with, counsel's or staffs work in this criminal case, or with the knowledge that such interference is likely to result; and
c. Making or directing others to make public statements about any prospective juror or any juror in this criminal proceeding."
He was free to declare his innocence or testify.

He chose not to testify knowing he had no excuse.
He has continued to declare his innocence from day 1 and he is not required to testify at all. Only an idiot like you would take the stand and open themself up to deal with the corruption being foisted upon him.

Yes just like i said. He can't publicly talk about anyone involved in the case. Like every other criminal defendant on the planet. He can't threaten them or give out their names to his followers who are known to attack people who say anything they don't like about Trump.

Why should Trump get special treatment?

He said he would testify, just like he said he would release his tax returns, just like he said he would lock Hillary up. Just like he said he would replace Obamacare Just like he said he would build a border wall and Mexico would pay for it.


Why do you enjoy being lied to so much you continue to vote for someone who lies to you about everything?

Bullshit, you said "Trump was gagged which specifically barred him from naming court workers, and individuals."

Good question, why is this court treating him differently then any other defendant? Why is this judge and prosecutor doing everything in their power to see that the trial is so one-sided?
He said he would testify, just like he said he would release his tax returns, just like he said he would lock Hillary up. Just like he said he would replace Obamacare Just like he said he would build a border wall and Mexico would pay for it.
And since he made those statements about testifying it has become apparent that there is no basis for the charges against him.

I will never vote for the current liar in chief -Biden. Why do you enjoy being lied to so much? Are you hoping for a shower with your "Daddy"?

That's her secret fantasy.

It's why she can't stop thinking about him.

She has the same unhealthy sexual obsession with him that Cohen has. :lmao:
