Something unprecedented is going to happen in America, maybe it will have happened by the time you are reading this.
Donald Trump is scheduled to testify in his own New York civil fraud case.
It's unprecedented to see a former president testifying like this, and it's unprecedented that a former president would be facing legal problems like this in the first place.
It makes sense, in that Donald Trump is an unprecedented kind of guy.
There are two ways that this could go for Trump, and I believe that how well he is able to control the narrative of the courtroom early on could set the stage for how this entire trial will be viewed.
If Trump can quickly make himself the hero/victim, then that's going to make people form a very different opinion of him than if he is clearly the bad guy in the courtroom.
That doesn't mean that Trump should be weak, though.
His fans are still counting on the former president to stand up for what's right over what's easy, just like he's always done.
New York Attorney General Letitia James is either actually worried about chaos in the courtroom, or she's just trying to paint Trump as a clown who's bringing his circus to town.
Either way, she's priming the public to think that Trump is going to have some problems controlling his behavior.
"Next week, Donald Trump himself will take the stand. And while I am sure he will try to hide his wrongdoing behind taunts, threats and name-calling, we will not be bullied out of uncovering the truth," James said.
Trump is not known for holding back his rhetoric, the only question is how far will Donald be willing to go in a courtroom setting?
We'll know soon enough.
