Arthur Aidala: Trump's signature is present on a check while other key documents were never personally signed by Trump

Key documents lacking former President Donald Trump's signature may pose issues for Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg's case, criminal defense attorney Arthur Aidala told CNN on Monday.

Trump is confronting 34 felony counts for allegedly falsifying business documents relating to payments to porn star Stormy Daniels for her silence regarding an alleged affair ahead of the 2016 election.

Aidala: There is paperwork that corroborates the people's evidence, and that's obviously hurtful for the president

Aidala noted that Trump's signature is present on a check while other key documents were never personally signed by the former president, suggesting the possibility a jury could find "reasonable doubt" over Trump's involvement when compared to former attorney Michael Cohen, a key witness in Bragg's case.

Cohen, who is a crucial witness for prosecutors, pleaded guilty to giving false statements, as well as charges like tax evasion and campaign finance violations in 2018.
