Most Read from BloombergThe first trial of Donald Trump began Monday in New York with scenes unlike anything in US history. Just before entering the third-floor courtroom at 10:00 a.m., Trump stopped to address the news media. He then falsely accused the US Justice Department of coordinating the New York case and said he was targeted because he’s the “leading candidate” for 2024. Kevin Wallace, a lawyer for the attorney general’s office, told the courtroom that employees of Trump had engineered the value of Trump Tower and 40 Wall Street. He played a clip of Michael Cohen, Trump’s former fixer, explaining the process, prompting Trump to shake his head and scowl.
