In the trial concerning hush money payments allegedly made to Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal during the 2016 presidential campaign to keep them silent about their affairs with Donald Trump, Michael Cohen, Trump's former lawyer, was cross-examined extensively. Cohen testified against Trump, detailing the alleged efforts to cover up the affairs, with claims of reimbursements for the payments by Trump [1].

Throughout Cohen's testimony, insults and attacks flew between him and Trump's legal team, with accusations of lying and questioning Cohen's credibility taking central stage during the trial [2]. Trump's lawyer strongly refuted Cohen's claims and accused him of lying under oath, which became a major point of contention in the courtroom [3].

The trial included tense moments as Cohen faced intense questioning from Trump's legal team, aiming to attack his credibility, highlight inconsistencies, and sow doubts about his honesty [4]. Cohen's credibility and motivations were heavily scrutinized during the trial, with the defense suggesting that he was dishonest and attempting to profit from his role as a key witness [5].

The dispute continued with Cohen confirming text messages with Trump about the hush money investigation, further adding complexity to the legal battle [6]. The trial also delved into the challenges surrounding the gag order battle and the involvement of key figures like Stormy Daniels and Barrett Blade [7][8].

As the trial progressed, Cohen and Trump's legal team engaged in heated exchanges, revolving around allegations, credibility, and the contentious history between the two parties [9]. Jurors were left to determine the weight of Cohen's testimony and the veracity of the claims made against Trump during the hush money trial, with witness credibility emerging as a critical focal point [10].
