MSNBC Analyst: There’s a ‘Fair Possibility’ Trump Testifies Because He ‘Thinks He’s the Smartest Person in the Room’

MSNBC legal analyst Danny Cevallos has weighed in on the possibility of former President Trump testifying during his ongoing hush money trial in Manhattan, suggesting there is a “decent chance” that Trump may choose to take the stand.

Cevallos highlighted Trump’s perceived confidence in his own intellect and his tendency, common among white-collar crime defendants, to believe he can explain away any allegations against him. This belief, according to Cevallos, often leads defendants to see testifying as an opportunity to clear up misunderstandings.

While it remains uncertain whether Trump will eventually testify, he has indicated openness to the idea, although it would be an uncommon move for a defendant in a criminal trial.

Judge Juan Merchan ruled that prosecutors could cross-examine Trump about other civil lawsuits he’s been involved in if he chooses to testify, though Trump is not obligated to do so, and jurors cannot hold it against him if he opts not to.

The trial began with opening statements from both prosecutors and Trump’s legal team, and the first witness was called to the stand on Monday. Former National Enquirer publisher David Pecker resumed his testimony on Tuesday.

Trump faces 34 counts of falsifying business records related to reimbursements made to his former attorney, Michael Cohen, for a payment to adult film star Stormy Daniels to keep quiet about an alleged affair before the 2016 election. As the trial progresses, the question of whether Trump will testify remains a topic of interest and speculation.
