Since the trial is not being televised and news photographers are only permitted 45 seconds to take still photos prior to the start of each day, the only images from inside the courtroom during Michael Cohen’s testimony are portraits by sketch artists.

These, by noted sketch artist Jane Rosenberg, show Cohen on the witness stand being questioned by prosecutor Susan Hoffinger while Judge Juan Merchan, Trump and his defense attorney Emil Bove look on.

Cohen appears bespectacled in one, looking at a screen that is displaying one of the checks that he said were from Trump to reimburse him for the hush money payment he made to Stormy Daniels.
