Donald Trump’s former lawyer takes the stand.

Former US President Donald Trump’s trial in New York is in its fourth week, where he’s accused of trying to cover up a $130,000 payment to porn star Stormy Daniels.

He’s pleaded not guilty to 34 counts of falsifying business records and also denies having a sexual encounter with Daniels.

This week, the man at the centre of those allegations - Michael Cohen, Trump’s former lawyer and right hand man - took the stand.

Anthony Zurcher, alongside the BBC’s US reporters, Kayla Epstein and Madeline Halpert, take a detailed look at Cohen’s evidence, and they also discuss why high ranking Republicans have been speaking outside the court in New York and why it could affect the Vice Presidential nomination.     HOSTS:  • Anthony Zurcher, North America Correspondent   GUESTS:  • Kayla Epstein, BBC reporter covering the trial in New York • Madeline Halpert, BBC  reporter covering the trial in New York   GET IN TOUCH: * Join our online community: https://discord.gg/qSrxqNcmRB * Send us a message or voice note via WhatsApp to +44 330 123 9480 * Email Americast@bbc.co.uk * Or use #Americast
