NY: Judge denies motions for mistrial, gag order modification, in disgraced former president’s hush money trial

“The cross-examination of Stormy Daniels in former President Trump’s hush money trial concluded earlier Thursday but her testimony was still being debated by attorneys at the end of the day. Trump’s team again asked for a mistrial over salacious details she revealed from the witness stand which they argued was over the top and not relevant to charges of falsifying records. Trump’s team also asked the judge to narrow a gag order in place in order for Trump to respond to Daniels testimony, which they said dominated media reports in the last 24 hours without giving the former president a chance to provide his version of events. The judge denied both requests.” (05/09/24)
