Trump's best defense in New York lawsuit? 'Delay, delay, delay,' ex-prosecutors say
John Moscow, a former deputy chief of the Manhattan district attorney's investigations division, said he could "see a projected defense strategy of saying, 'Let's stall this.'"
“Delay is always in the defendant’s favor,” and it would allow Trump to enjoy the “fruits” of his alleged scheme for as long as possible, unless the courts try to hold his feet to the fire, said Moscow, now a white-collar defense lawyer, adding that such cases "can go on forever."
Judges at this point should understand that Trump is "not seeking his day in court,” Moscow said, pointing to his history of drawing out litigation with numerous motions and appeals.
