Trump hush money trial: Prosecutors say former US President corrupted 2016 election

New York: The prosecutors said on the first day of Donald Trump’s criminal hush money trial that the former US President broke the law and corrupted the 2016 election by trying to cover up sexual encounters with a porn star and a Playboy model, while his defence lawyer said he committed no crime.

Jurors in the historic trial also heard briefly from the prosecution’s first witness: former National Enquirer publisher David Pecker, who prosecutors say participated in a “catch and kill” scheme to suppress unflattering stories about Trump and help him get elected.
