Trump Attends Trial Amidst Graduation Controversy and Fundraising Disclosures

Former President Donald Trump appeared at the Lower Manhattan courthouse for his first criminal trial as a former U.S. president and presumptive nominee.

He expressed frustration over being barred from attending his son Barron’s high school graduation due to potential jail time. Trump labeled the trial a “scam” and “political witch hunt,” linking it to upcoming legal battles.

The “Access Hollywood” tape won’t be shown to jurors, but testimony from alleged associates is allowed. Prosecutors seek penalties for violating a gag order.

Trump lamented not campaigning, suggesting it favors Democrats. His fundraising committees will disclose finances, with the Save America Joint Fundraising Committee raising $129 million in 2023. New entities, Trump 47 Committee and Trump National Committee, could attract significant contributions.
