‘Never seen this before’: CNN analysts shocked by unusual request by Trump hush money jury

A wild moment was captured on live television Wednesday when a CNN panel received news of a “crazy” demand from former President Donald Trump’s criminal hush money trial jury that literally left one talking head speechless.

A stunned moment of silence was quickly filled by the following: “Whoa!” “Ugh!” “Okay.” “Wow? “I think I just said, ‘Oh my goodness.’”

This word salad was the response of CNN’s Brianna Keilar, Elliot Williams, Elie Honig, and Boris Sanchez as they received word Trump’s jury wanted to hear their instructions from Justice Juan Merchan again.

“I’ve actually never seen this before,” Honig said. “This just underscores the craziness of not sending the jury instruction back.”

This was the second demand from the 12 New Yorkers tasked with issuing a verdict in the Manhattan criminal court, where Trump has pleaded not guilty to 34 counts of falsifying business records to conceal hush money paid to bury potentially campaign-killing content ahead of the 2016 presidential election.

The jurors have also demanded notes on testimony from ex-tabloid editor David Pecker and Trump’s former fixer Michael Cohen.

This second demand was met with skepticism by Williams, who quickly predicted Justice Juan Merchan would not submit the court to a re-read of the lengthy and detailed jury instructions.

“I will bet you an ice cream cream soda that the judge comes back and says, if there are specific instructions you wish to here, please let me know and we’ll work out with the attorneys,” Williams said.

“That’s literally just what happens as you were saying that,” Sanchez replied.

Honig then quickly dove into what exactly such a strange request might mean.

“It tells me that the jury instructions were way too much for any human being to absorb and they always, always are,” Honig said.

“I don’t know who I like this for,” he added. “I don’t love this as the prosecution.”
