Closing arguments in former President Donald Trump's criminal hush money trial may have stunned some experts with their extreme length, but legal expert Norm Eisen said there was no other way for the prosecution to do it.

Eisen also noted that as Steinglass recreated his timeline for Trump's alleged crimes, the jury appeared to "hang in there."Watch the video below or click here.
