Donald Trump in court: four lessons from the closing arguments

Everyone lied, except Donald Trump – this was the strategy used by the defense to plead for an acquittal. The prosecution, on the other hand, told an almost cinematic tale of a political conspiracy that would lead to a guilty verdict.

At the end of the trial, Todd Blanche tries a psychological trick. It will get him into trouble, but it's worth it for Donald Trump's chief lawyer. “You can't send someone to prison based on what Michael Cohen said,” says Blanche. Trump in jail? That's the scenario he wants to use to create a moment of horror.
