VIDEO: CNN Panel SHOCKED After Trump’s Lawyers Make The Announcement

The cross-examination of prosecution witness Keith Davidson by former President Donald Trump’s legal team during the hush-money case left the CNN panel of experts and pundits in a state of shock. CNN anchor Erin Burnett and chief legal analyst Paula Reid were taken aback by the remarkable effectiveness displayed during the questioning, referring to it as an astonishing moment.

“We are tracking minute-by-minute updates as Trump’s defense attorney just finished cross-examining a key lawyer. Talking about Keith Davidson, he represented both Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal, who were both paid to keep quiet about alleged affairs with Trump. Erin?” co-anchor Wolf Blitzer said, bringing in Burnett.

“And the prosecution requested a five-minute break here to decide whether they’re going to try to do re-direct examination. And Davidson’s testimony so far, some really crucial moments both on direct and in these recent moments in cross. He says these deals were crafted in the weeks before the 2016 election and he said that he never had any interaction with Trump directly,” she said before addressing Reid.

“So, Paula, as I said, they just asked for a five-minute break, and you said this is a five-minute break where you sit down and go, OMG, we need to clean up on aisle five,” Burnett said.

“Yes, they do. I mean, this was incredibly effective cross-examination largely because the prosecution did not themselves bring up a lot of Davidson’s other dealings. Deals that he brokered from clients – for clients who got money from, for example, Charlie Sheen or going to try to get money from Hulk Hogan in exchange for a sex tape, something where some of his interactions were monitored by the authorities,” Reid said.

“They did incredibly damaging things that raised questions about whether Davidson was indeed in the business of extortion,” Reid added.
