‘Trial was very unfair’:Trump protests his conviction in the hush money case and promises to file an appeal

The former US President Donald Trump has cried foul and vowed to appeal the verdict in his first speech following his historic conviction.

Trump called the trial “very unfair” on Friday and said that his witnesses had been “crucified” throughout the proceedings.

“The trial itself was incredibly unfair. We were under no circumstances permitted to use our election expert. At a speech at Trump Tower in New York, Trump reportedly remarked, “You saw what happened to some of the witnesses that were on our side; they were literally crucified by this man.” CNN reports.

In order to buy Stormy Daniels’ silence about an alleged affair, Trump allegedly paid her $130,000 in “hush money” in the run-up to the 2016 US presidential election. On Thursday, Trump was found guilty on all 34 counts of fabricating company documents. Cohen paid Daniels on Trump’s behalf, according to the prosecution, and Trump paid Cohen back by forging financial records and breaking election financing regulations.

As he has consistently insisted, Trump denied any wrongdoing.

“I think it sounds very bad to falsify business records. That sounds so bad.” I’ve never had that before, so that’s a horrible thing for me,” Trump remarked.

For every charge on which Trump has been found guilty, he risks a four-year prison sentence. But according to a report, given his senior age of 77, the fact that this was his first offense, and the non-violent character of his offense, he could only have to pay a fine.

Trump disparages a crucial witness Michael A. Cohen

Without mentioning Michael Cohen by name, Trump continued to disparage him. Cohen was a pivotal participant in the incident that resulted in the conviction as well as a crucial witness in the case.

Without mentioning Cohen by name, Trump referred to him as a “sleazebag” and said that his own actions had gotten him into trouble.

“This attorney was really knowledgeable. I can’t use his name anymore due to the gag order. However, he’s a sleazebag, you know. Everyone is aware of that. It took me some time to realize, but he was successful,” Trump reportedly stated to CNN.

“Devil” and “conflicted”: Trump’s criticism of the judge continues

Trump continued by referring to Juan Merchan, the case’s judge, as the “devil.” Trump has targeted Merchan and his family throughout the lawsuit, claiming that they have been compromised since his daughter has a history of collaborating with Democrats.

Merchan was dubbed the most compromised judge in history by Trump. He continued by saying that his conviction was the result of “bad people.”

“A judge has never been more conflicted. I am currently subject to a gag order, something that has never been placed on any presidential contender before. According to CNN, Trump stated, “I’m under a nasty gag order where I’ve had to pay thousands of dollars in penalties and was threatened with jail.”

Trump attempted to make a connection between the verdict and illegal immigration, an issue that he and his far-right followers find appealing, by stating that “we’re losing our country” to immigrants and then claiming that “I really think this was an event that took place yesterday with the judge.”
