After Stormy Daniels was finished giving electrifying testimony against Donald Trump, the prosecution switched gears and called a book publishing executive to the stand. Now we’ve moved on to yet another witness, Madeleine Westerhout, who worked directly outside the Trump Oval Office.

So far it appears Westerhout is there to help confirm that Trump was directly involved in things like writing checks, crafting tweets, and such. The thing is, she doesn’t want to be there – and now she’s crying on the stand.

She’s actually crying because they’re getting into the story of why she got fired, after she made remarks about Trump’s family to the media. She’s still obviously very loyal to Trump even though he fired her, and yet – because this is how witness subpoenas work – she’s giving testimony against him.

This is eerily reminiscent of Hope Hicks’ testimony from last week. Hicks didn’t want to be there but had no choice, and she ended up giving damning testimony against Trump – only to apologize to him and start crying on the stand.


. . .



This all serves to underscore that these people from Trump world very much don’t want to be feeding him to the legal lions, yet they simply don’t have a choice. Their only other option would be to refuse to testify and get hauled off to jail for obstruction of justice. So in the end, conflicted as they may be, they’re helping send Trump to jail because they don’t want to go to jail.
