Trump jokes he has been indicted more than Al Capone - update

Trump has denied all with his lawyers describing him as a "master of finding value where others do not." Trump says his disclaimers absolve him of all wrongdoing. "This case is a scam," he said. Trump says he might testify.

Trump swears his 'Mar-a-Largo' is worth over $1b. The most bullish of his peons says its worth $200m. The judge interjected when Trump's lawyer Alina Habba said in her opening remarks that the Palm Beach estate would sell for roughly $1 billion. Palm Beach County assessed the property at a range of between $18m and $27m between 2011 and 2021.
Trump has been indicted 4 times and faces 91 criminal charges. Capone faced many charges in his criminal career. He was notoriously successful at dodging prosecution until a tax evasion conviction in 1931 led to a sentence of 11 years in federal prison. Capone died in 1947 in Florida.
Granddaughters of Al Capone auctioned off a slew of the mob boss’s gear. A Colt .45 passed down through generations of Capone’s descendants was the star and made $860k. The next-highest seller was a .38-caliber Colt pistol, which went for $200k. A platinum and diamond pocketwatch sold for $190k, and a pocketknife of the same material sporting the monogram AL in diamond studs sold for $75k.

174 items brought $3m in 2021.
