‘Upset Trump’ fumes over steamy details in criminal case he ‘really hates’: report

Former president Donald Trump is on the brink of a tantrum as details emerge from the criminal court case that he “really hates,” according to a new report.

Trump is getting testy over Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s looming hush money case as court filings reveal “steamy” details from the former president’s past, sources who’ve spoken with Trump told the New York Times.

“Trump’s aides are blunt that he particularly hates this case given the nature of the story that prosecutors intend to put in front of the jury,” write Alan Feuer and Maggie Haberman. “The details being made public also upset Trump.”

The Times reporters then dig in to the details they report Trump hates being made public.

“In the waning days of Trump’s first run for the White House, the porn star Stormy Daniels threatened to reveal an affair she says she had with him — a scandalous development that could have damaged his campaign,” the pair write. “So, according to prosecutors and their star witness, the former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen, Trump arranged to buy her silence.”

“In so doing, employees working at his direction falsified a series of invoices, checks and ledger entries to cover his tracks.”

Trump has pleaded not guilty to 34 counts of falsifying business records and is slated to stand trial on March 25, the same day his more-than $450 million civil fraud payout is due, court records show.

The former president and Bragg are now locked into a battle over evidence that can be presented in trial, specifically the notorious “Access Hollywood” tape that almost torpedoed his 2016 campaign.

While the Trump team argues its merit is more salacious than informative, Bragg contends the tape proves Trump had a motive to silence Daniels.

Bragg would also like to inform the jury of a reported payment made to Trump Tower doorman Dino Sajudin to keep him from spreading a baseless claim about Trump’s out-of-wedlock child, the Times notes.

“Not surprisingly,” the Times reporters write, “Trump’s lawyers have vehemently objected.”

While legal experts say that, from a judicial perspective, Bragg’s is the least substantial of the four criminal cases Trump faces, politically it is placed to deliver a punch.

The trial begins just a few short weeks after former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley dropped out of the Republican presidential nomination race, leaving Trump anxious to scoop up supporters who could still vote either way.

“The details of Trump’s behavior could also further alienate women and swing voters whose backing he needs in a general election,” the Times report concludes.

“The impact the case may have on his behavior inside and outside court remains to be seen.”
