Donald Trump's Historic Criminal Trial Concludes Sixth Week

The criminal trial of Donald J. Trump, marking the first prosecution of an American president, concluded its sixth week with both the prosecution and defense resting their cases.

Next week, 12 jurors in Manhattan will begin deliberations on whether Mr. Trump is guilty, after weeks of lurid testimony and scrutinizing financial documents.

The former president faces charges of falsifying 34 business records linked to a hush-money payment to adult film star Stormy Daniels, who alleges a sexual encounter with Mr. Trump in 2006 in Lake Tahoe, Nevada. Prosecutors claim Mr. Trump concealed the payment, made before the 2016 election.

Mr. Trump denies the charges and the affair. If convicted, he could face prison or probation.

During cross-examination, defense lawyer Todd Blanche attempted to discredit the testimony of Michael D. Cohen, the key witness. Blanche's voice resonated in the courtroom as he accused Cohen of lying.

Cohen had testified that he sought authorization from Mr. Trump before making the hush-money payment, placing a call lasting 1 minute 36 seconds to Mr. Trump's bodyguard, Keith Schiller. Cohen claimed he spoke briefly with Schiller before talking to Mr. Trump.
