BREAKING NEWS: Judge Merchan Throws Tantrum at Trial, Orders Trump Defense Witness Robert Costello to Leave the Courtroom

As we previously reported, President Trump made a comeback to a Manhattan courtroom for the trial involving alleged ‘hush money’ lawfare led by Alvin Bragg. Once again, prosecutors brought forth their key witness, Michael Cohen, who has been convicted of perjury, to testify in court.

Cohen stunned the public by confessing that he stole tens of thousands of dollars from Trump and lied to Trump Organization CFO Allen Weisselberg.

After the prosecution rested their case, Trump’s defense team called attorney Robert Costello to testify.

Remember that Robert Costello previously criticized Michael Cohen as a “convicted perjurer” and accused Bragg’s prosecutors of selectively choosing emails.

Corrupt Judge Merchan severely criticized Costello and cleared the courtroom.

Check out the conversation between Judge Merchan and Robert Costello:

Merchan becomes angry and starts harshly criticizing Robert Costello on the witness stand for making some casual remarks and rolling his eyes during the testimony.

Merchan: Are you staring me down right now?

Costello: I’m not.


The trial resumed after a delay caused by a heated argument between Judge Merchan and Bob Costello.

“Merchan is absolutely seething over Costello’s damning testimony. The type of treatment Costello, an experienced prosecutor who once worked for the US Attorney’s Office for New York in the 1970s and early 1980s, is receiving on the witness stand from the judge is disgusting,” Paul Ingrassia said.

“Merchan is visibly perturbed, condescending, and downright abusive of the witness on the stand. Outrageous behavior from a judge, and totally inappropriate for any courtroom! No decorum whatsoever!” Ingrassia added.

Judge Merchan ran interference for Alvin Bragg and continued to shout at Costello.

Via Paul Ingrassia:

Bragg Prosecutor: Did you say Michael Cohen was acting like a drama queen? Yes or No?

Costello: I said I didn’t know if Michael Cohen was acting like a drama queen.

Merchan, again, chastises Costello from the stand: WOULD YOU JUST ANSWER YES OR NO?

Bragg Prosecutor: You don’t like drama queens, don’t you?

Judge Merchan abruptly ended the day’s proceedings with a simple “have a good night.”
