“The Trump team said, ‘Well, what happened in this trial could happen here in this trial,’ which is absolutely absurd,” Cordell continued.

Trump has “skilled lawyers, a whole team of investigators,” but it’s “amazingly stupid” and a surefire way to “alienate” the judge, she suggested.

“One judge, a black judge, and talking about this case and comparing it to Trump’s case was absurd,” Cordell added.
