“Just look at the facts. “Over six weeks, a jury of 12 Americans heard the evidence,” she said. “His counsel actively participated in jury selection. He actively made decisions about which witnesses to call and question. And the jury came back with a unanimous decision. Guilty on 34 counts.

“Do you know why he complains? The truth is that fraudsters don’t like to be caught,” she added.

Harris condemned Trump’s attacks on judges and witnesses and said he planned to “apply a second term to exact revenge.
