Former US President Donald Trump has become the first former US President to face criminal charges. A New York grand jury has indicted the 76 year old Republican over hush money payments made to a porn star named Stormy Daniels during his 2016 campaign.
Manhattan district attorney Alvin Bragg’s office confirmed that it had contacted Trump’s lawyers to coordinate his surrender.
Donald Trump has slammed the indictment terming it as ”political persecution and election interference” and vowed that it would backfire on President Joe Biden.
Besides this, Trump also faces felony investigations in Georgia relating to the 2020 election and in Washington over the January 6, 2021 attack on the Capital by the ex-president’s supporters who hoped to keep him in office after his loss to Joe Biden.
