Former President Trump Could Face Criminal Charges for Alleged Hush Money Payments
A grand jury in New York City could deliver charges against former President Donald Trump as early as Thursday for his alleged role in hush money payments made to adult film star Stormy Daniels just before the 2016 election.
If indicted, Trump would become the first former U.S.
president ever to be criminally charged.
Law enforcement in Sacramento is keeping a close eye on potential unrest, with demonstrators on both sides gathering in New York City.
Meanwhile, in another federal investigation, a federal judge has determined that the special counsel investigating Trump’s handling of classified documents presented compelling preliminary evidence that Trump may have broken the law.
The special counsel has argued that Trump knowingly misled his attorney to file a false sworn statement.
Secret Service and NYPD are coordinating security plans in case Trump is indicted and arraigned in open court.
