Trump rips judge in New York criminal trial: 'Any other judge would have thrown this case out'

Former President Trump blasted Judge Juan Merchan yet again in comments to the press before entering the courtroom for his New York criminal trial on Tuesday.

Trump argued that his defense team has essentially "won" the case already, and that Merchan should side "decisively" against Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg.

"Any other judge would have thrown this case out," Trump said.

Tuesday's proceedings will begin with the defense team's first opportunity to call witnesses in the case, with the prosecution resting at the end of Monday's proceedings.

The defense team has already canceled plans to call at least one witness after Merchan drastically limited what the witness would be allowed to discuss. The witness, former FEC commissioner Brad Smith, would have testified regarding election laws.
