Trump Responds to Trial Witness’ Claims: ‘I Paid a Lawyer’

Former President Donald Trump appeared to respond to claims made by his former lawyer, Michael Cohen, during an appearance outside Manhattan criminal court in New York on Tuesday morning.

Mr. Cohen testified as a witness in the so-called “hush-money” case in which prosecutors have accused the former president of falsifying business records at the end of the 2016 election. The former president has pleaded not guilty.

In his remarks on Tuesday, President Trump did not mention Mr. Cohen but only said that he paid a lawyer an amount of money that was marked down as legal expenses. “There is no crime,” he said.

“I had a legal expense and I marked it down as a legal expense. I didn’t mark it down as a construction of wall, construction of a building, I didn’t mark it down as electricity,” President Trump said outside the courtroom.

The former president noted that due to a gag order that was imposed by New York State Supreme Court Justice Juan Merchan, he could not go into more details. So far, attempts by his lawyers to have the judge remove the gag order have been unsuccessful.
