Grand Jury indictes former President Trump



A lawyer for Donald Trump said Thursday he’s been told that the former president has been indicted in New York on charges involving payments made during the 2016 presidential campaign to silence claims of an extramarital sexual encounter.

It becomes the first ever criminal case against a former U.S. president and a jolt to Trump’s bid to retake the White House in 2024.

Joe Tacopina, a lawyer for Trump, told The Associated Press he had been told that a grand jury that had been meeting for months voted to indict Trump. The specific charges were not immediately made public.

Trump, who has denied any wrongdoing and has attacked the investigation, was expected to surrender to authorities next week, according to a person familiar with the matter who was not authorized to discuss a matter that remained under seal.

The grand jury indictment of Trump, 76, is an extraordinary development after years of investigations into his business, political and personal dealings. It is likely to galvanize critics who say Trump lied and cheated his way to the top and embolden supporters who feel the Republican is being unfairly targeted by a Democratic prosecutor.

  1. Makes me cringe that our government and the Deep State can be weaponized to destroy anyone who opposes their plan and efforts to replace our republic with a socialist totalitarian state. The parallels to the establishment of the Soviet Union and Communist China are obvious.

  2. We are now Amerika, Republic of. The malicious prosecution and imprisonment of political opponents is evidence of descent into the third world .As this now becomes the standard, retribution will become the order of the day. This takes us to a dark precipice .We have been in a cold political and cultural war for some time. Simply, if you do not feel chills down the spine, you just don’t know what time it is. I pray to our most merciful God. The one easily half of this nation rejects.

  3. A witch hunt. A misdemeanor that stute of limitations is in effect. Cohen’s took out a loan to make the payment without Trumps knowledge. I definitely voting Trump now. If they can do this to him, what will they do to us.

  4. Trump absolutely loves women and has been very discreet his whole life. Under Bragg, people are being killed, raped and beat up for no reason. Streets are full of homeless, illegals, drug addicts, excrement and rats. Stores are looted. Criminals arrested are promptly released with no bail. Now raids and indictments on Trump, while Biden’s semi-truckloads of top secret documents (filtered by his lawyers) aren’t consequential. He is owned by our enemies due to influence peddling for decades. World war is increasingly on our horizon. All thanks to the FBI and Social Media for destroying out greatest president..
