New York-

In the trial against the former American presidents Donald Trump There has been a scandal involving hush money payments to a porn star. Judge Juan Merchan exploded when questioning defense witness Robert Costello in New York because he appeared to question Merchan’s decisions. Costello, who would discredit key witness Michael Cohen, responded several times to questions that Merchan had previously allowed the prosecutor to object to.

The judge instructed the witness – Costello himself is a lawyer – that he was not allowed to answer in such cases. When the objection was approved, Costello then audibly said “Jeesh” – which can be translated as “Oh my God”. Merchan then had the jury escorted out of the courtroom, telling Trump ally Costello, “I want to talk about decorum in my courtroom.” He declines to comment on his decisions.

As Costello continued to stare at the judge, Merchan blurted out with audible irritation, “Are you staring at me?” He then had the room cleared – with the help of loud and sharp instructions from court staff. Journalists and observers were allowed to re-enter room 1530 after a few minutes and the interrogation continued.
