Trump Taking Stand Regardless Of Gag Order

His lawyer has made the announcement:

Donald Trump WILL take the stand in the fraud trial against him.

That is the case, regardless of what a gag order in the case says.

Trump's legal team seems hesitant to let their client do his own talking as well, but it would appear as though our former president is insisting that he speak in the courtroom.

The Hill claims that Trump "will take the stand December 11 in his civil fraud trial, despite the judge’s gag order and discouragement from his legal team."

Trump's attorney, Alina Habba, gave more details:

I will say and I still say that having any client get on a stand with a gag order as limited or large as this is a First Amendment violation. And you should not respect the court and give them the opportunity to hear you. But, he is going to take the stand regardless, and he will navigate it.

Habba explained why Trump wants to take the stand so badly. To give his testimony "fully and completely."

"I would never discourage the former president from testifying, because quite honestly, our plan up until now was to have him testify, he always wanted to testify and he should testify," Habba said. "When he has nothing to hide, it’s the best thing you could do is put this great witness on that is going to stand up and tell you the truth."

Habba thinks that despite difficulties with the gag order, Donald Trump is still doing relatively well in this case.

"They’ve closed their case, we are now putting on our case, and they cannot prove that we did anything wrong," Habba said recently. "All they’ve proven is that President Trump is worth a lot more than his financial condition. And if he wanted to inflate it, he would have put his brand alone — which is worth billions and billions and billions of dollars. But he didn’t because there was no fraud."

Do you think that Trump is going to face any penalties as a result of this case?
