Trump scowlingAs the day draws to a close, Trump is becoming very animated while talking to all of his attorneys. He in particular seems to be taking great issue with some of Bender’s testimony.

At times, he appears to be very upset with his face turning beet red. At one point, Trump turned to Cliff Robert, the attorney for his adult sons, and whisper-yelled at him, while pointing and waving his finger.

Donald Bender testified that when he did accounting for the Trump Organization from 2011 to 2021, he spent about 45% to 55% of time on a broad array of people.

Bender said he prepared documents of Trump's assets and liabilities and that he would take information given by his client presented in a financial statement. He said that before technology improved, he would go to Trump Tower in person to obtain the necessary documents and put them in a binder. Then technology changed, he said, and they were able to get the records by email.

Even though Bender was speaking in fairly dry accounting terms, everyone in the courtroom was still fully engaged and hanging on his every word.


The state has called its first witness, Donald Bender, who previously testified in the state's criminal trial against the Trump Organization, which led to the conviction of the company's former CFO Allen Weisselberg. He was released from jail earlier this year.
