LEGAL: “Trump claimed during a sit-down interview with Fox News host Tucker Carlson that Manhattan court workers cried during his arrest and apologized to him.

‘They were incredible,’ Trump said in the interview that aired Tuesday [April 11, 2023]. ‘When I went to the courthouse which is also a prison in a sense, they signed me in and I’ll tell you people were crying.’ […]

The former president turned himself in last Tuesday and was arraigned on 34 counts of falsifying business records stemming from hush money payments made to Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal.

Trump pleaded not guilty and maintained his innocence during the Carlson interview.”
