Who is David Pecker? Media mogul reported to be first testimony in Trump trial

David Pecker, a key figure in the hush money case against Donald Trump, is reportedly slated to be the first witness to testify against the former president at his New York criminal trial.

Pecker is the former CEO of the company that published The National Enquirer and is expected to deliver the first testimony against Trump after opening arguments begin in his trial on Monday, a source familiar with the matter told the New York Times.

Prosecutors say Pecker’s hush money relationship with Trump and his former attorney and fixer Michael Cohen began at Trump Tower in August 2015, when he agreed to help Trump’s campaign identify negative stories about him.
