Former US President Donald Trump could face indictment, as a Manhattan grand jury now has the power to decide whether or not to charge him in the first-ever criminal case filed against a former US president.
The case revolves around alleged hush money payments made to adult film star Stormy Daniels during the 2016 presidential election.
Daniels claims she had an affair with Trump, but he has denied any wrongdoing.
Many Republicans, including potential 2024 rival Governor Rhonda Santis, have defended Trump and called the investigation politically motivated.
Critics argue that the prosecutor is pursuing a political agenda by going after something that happened many years ago, rather than focusing on current crimes in his jurisdiction.
