Trump Speaks Less Before Judge Engoran Civil Case Comparisons Two Sides of Foley Square

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

LITERARY SDNY, Jan 25 – When it happened, it was brief. Very brief. In the morning Carol Martin testified, a hostile witness for the defense.

Only, she was not hostile. She said when she called E. Jean Carroll a drug addict, with her case as her drug, it was hyperbole. At the end E. Jean hugged Carol Martin. 

 When a phone rang in the courtroom, Judge Kaplan inquired and had the person thrown out, see below.

 Judge Kaplan wanted to know exactly what Habba would ask Trump. At first Habba pushed back, then recited three questions. Judge Kaplan first approved only one, then consented to a second.  

 So different, it had been, with NYS Judge Engoran next door. At first he had said Trump couldn't speak at all, since he wouldn't agree to the written conditions. Then as it happened he let Trump speak, about the witch hunt and his beautiful properties, for five minutes just before lunch.

  With Judge Kaplan it was after lunch. And it was not a closing argument - that would be the next day, Habba only - but rather as one of the defense's only two witness. And this was the direct: 

Habba: Defense calls President Donald Trump...  

Trump: Donald John Trump. 

Habba: You viewed your deposition?

Trump: I stand by it 100%, yes.  

Trump: She said something I considered a false accusation -- 

Roberta Kaplan: Objection! 

Judge Kaplan: Sustained. 

Habba: I have no further questions.    

But many had more questions, including Kurt Wheelock how in the first trial had gone up to Bergdorf Goodman to investigate. Where would he go now?
