Prosecutor Caught Lying About Trump Affair?

It has been noted that jurors heard the opening statements in Donald Trump’s ‘hush money’ trial from the prosecution and Trump’s attorneys via WLT Report.



The trial emerged from the allegation that Trump paid Stephanie Clifford, a porn star that goes by the moniker Stormy Daniels, to keep quiet about their alleged affair and stop the National Inquirer from running a story about it.

Trump has repeatedly denied the affair occurred. However, while addressing jury members, prosecutor Mathew Colangelo lied to jurors by stating that Trump “orchestrated a criminal scheme to corrupt the 2016 presidential election” by paying Clifford.

Trump’s defense claims the case is baseless and should have never been presented in the first place.

The AP had more on Colangleo’s false and purposely misleading statements:

Donald Trump tried to illegally influence the 2016 presidential election by preventing damaging stories about his personal life from becoming public, a prosecutor told jurors Monday at the start of the former president’s historic hush money trial.

“This was a planned, long-running conspiracy to influence the 2016 election, to help Donald Trump get elected through illegal expenditures to silence people who had something bad to say about his behavior,” prosecutor Matthew Colangelo said. “It was election fraud, pure and simple.”

A defense lawyer countered by assailing the case as baseless and attacking the integrity of the onetime Trump confidant who’s now the government’s star witness.
