Ex Attorney Predicts Most ‘Devastating Witness’ at Trump Hush Money Trial

Former U.S. Attorney Harry Litman predicted that Hope Hicks would be a “devastating witness” for Donald Trump at his upcoming criminal hush money trial, which is set to begin this Monday. Hicks, a former longtime aide to Trump, is expected to provide compelling testimony.

“Hicks will be so credible on the stand,” Litman told MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace.

Hicks served at the Trump Organization starting in 2014 and later joined the White House communications team. According to Litman, she was “present for all these conversations” that occurred before the 2016 election when Trump allegedly paid ad**lt actor Stormy Daniels to keep quiet about their alleged affair.

Litman emphasized the significance of her testimony, stating, “And under the rules of evidence, anything Trump says is fair game. It just really drives it home.”

The charges against Trump relate to alleged payments made to silence Daniels about the affair, which could have influenced the outcome of the 2016 presidential election.

The payments are considered potential violations of federal campaign finance laws. Trump’s legal team is expected to argue that the payments were personal matters and not campaign expenses.

Trump is reportedly anxious about the details that might emerge during the trial.

Litman noted, “Trump is desperate to hide” the underlying facts. He also predicted a dramatic courtroom scene: “There’ll be something really theatrical and real at the same time about him in the chair, glowering all day” when Hicks testifies against him.

Litman further envisioned Trump’s defense strategy. Instead of contesting the facts of the case, Trump is expected to highlight themes of “bias and victimhood.”

This approach aims to shift the focus from the specifics of the legal allegations to perceived injustices against him.

As the trial approaches, all eyes will be on Hicks, whose insider knowledge could prove pivotal in the proceedings against the former president.

Her testimony is anticipated not only for its potential impact on the trial but also for its broader implications for Trump’s public and political image.

The outcome of this trial could also significantly affect Trump’s future political aspirations, particularly as he faces multiple legal challenges.

The trial, therefore, is not just a legal battle but also a crucial moment that could define Trump’s legacy and influence the political landscape ahead of future elections.
