Trump aide to retake the stand after judge refuses to declare mistrial: Live updates

An ex-aide to former President Trump is expected to retake the stand in his hush money trial taking place in New York, helping cap another week’s worth of witness testimony.

Madeleine Westerhout, who was once Trump’s Oval Office director, will continue her testimony under cross-examination. 

Her role gave her close access to the then-president when he allegedly met with Michael Cohen about the hush money deal and signed repayment checks to the former fixer that now partially make up the charges in the case.

The case is continuing Friday after the judge once again refused to declare a mistrial, which Trump’s attorneys had sought, following the testimony of Stormy Daniels, who was paid the hush money.

Cohen has yet to take the stand.
