Trump trial live updates: ‘What have we done?’ Stormy Daniels’ lawyer texted on election night

Prosecutor Joshua Steinglass led off the re-direct examination of Stormy Daniels’ former attorney Keith Davidson by asking Davidson about the recorded phone call with Cohen in April 2018.

At the time, attorney Michael Avenatti had taken over as Daniels’ lawyer and was suing Davidson, he said.

Steinglass sought to get Davidson to add context to incendiary-sounding remarks during his phone call with Cohen.

“You were not telling Michael Cohen that Stormy Daniels was talking about the election and how she’s going to lose her leverage after the election?” Steinglass asked.

“Correct,” Davidson said.

Jurors then heard a portion of a recorded call.

“What would you do if you were me,” Cohen said on the call.

“I can’t even imagine,” Davidson replied.

“Would you write a book? Would you break away from the entire Trump … doctrine, you know? Would you go completely red? Would you join with (Steve) Bannon? Any thoughts? Because it’s not just me that’s being affected – – it’s my entire family. Nobody is thinking about Michael,” Cohen said.

Steinglass then completed his redirect.
