Trump Legal News: The Trial (Day 19)

The Trump criminal fraud trial is nearing the end. Here are the big stories from what was likely the second-to-last day of testimony:

If testimony does indeed conclude today, then it is likely that closing statements will not be given until next Tuesday. The trial is dark on Wednesdays, of course, while the Friday session has been canceled because a juror has to travel, and Monday is a holiday. Merchan doesn't want the jury to hear closing statements on Thursday, and then have to remember them for 4 days (Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday), hence the (likely) decision to push everything to Tuesday of next week.
