A man has set himself on fire outside the courthouse in New York where former US President Donald Trump is on trial.

Max Azzarello, a self-described ‘investigative researcher’’ has been identified as the self -immolating man,’

Moments before he doused himself in gasoline and set himself ablaze, Azzarello tossed a stack of pamphlets into the air, which included links to a Substack newsletter apparently authored by the self-immolator called “The Ponzi Papers.”, according to the NY Post.


Newsweek reported on the details 

Newsweek reporter Katherine Fung, who has been reporting from inside the courtroom all week, said the man was holding a sign before the incident, which included a link to a Substack site. A letter on the site was entitled, “I have set myself on fire outside the Trump Trial.”

“My name is Max Azzarello, and I am an investigative researcher who has set himself on fire outside of the Trump trial in Manhattan,” the site reads.

“This extreme act of protest is to draw attention to an urgent and important discovery: We are victims of a totalitarian con, and our own government (along with many of their allies) is about to hit us with an apocalyptic fascist world coup.”

The man was in the designated protest area outside the courthouse, Fox News reported

It comes after jury selection for Trump’s hush money trial concluded with 12 people, and six alternatives, chosen to decide whether the former US president covered up payments to women who alleged they had affairs with him.

This breaking news story is being updated and more details will be published shortly.
