Donald Trump Becomes First Ex-US President Indicted

Donald Trump has become the first ex-US President to be indicted.


PoliticalNews reports that Manhattan grand jury has indicted Donald Trump, making him the first former United States President to be formally accused.


The charges will be in the public space soon as the grand jury’s imputation is expected to be revealed in the coming days.


A statement Thursday evening by the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office confirmed Trump’s attorney has been contacted.

The office wants Trump, 76, to surrender to the Manhattan D.A.’s Office “for arraignment on a Supreme Court indictment”.


Noting that it remains under seal, the prosecutors said guidance will be provided when the arraignment date is selected.


Trump is accused of making hush-money payments, via lawyer Michael Cohen, to adult film actress Stormy Daniels, legal name Stephanie Clifford.


The businessman allegedly paid Daniels not to go public with the claim that they had an affair. Trump has denied an amorous relationship.


Reacting to the indictment, the former President said he was being persecuted by those against making America great.


“This is Political Persecution and Election Interference at the highest level in history.


“The Radical Left Democrats have been engaged in a witch-hunt to destroy the Make America Great Again movement,” Trump declared.
