A spokesman for the attorney general who was in charge of the investigation against Donald Trump, Alvin Bragg, said that the New York Attorney General’s office and the lawyer for the former president of the United States are negotiating terms so that the businessman seeking a return can hand over the White House to the authorities.
This afternoon we called Mr. Trump’s attorney, Mr Coordinate delivery to the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office To charge the Supreme Court, which remains confidential. “Guidance will be provided when an indictment date is determined,” the statement said.
A New York grand jury voted on Thursday to indict former President Donald Trump (2017-2021) in a case involving the payment of pornographic actress Stormy Daniels for her silence.
This is the first indictment of criminal offenses against a former US president. It will be officially announced in the next few days, and by then, the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office will require Trump to turn himself in to be cited on charges that are not yet known.
A few minutes after the accusation was announced, Trump issued a statement confirming that he had been victimized “witch hunt” He stated that this decision “He’s going to turn massively against (President) Joe Biden.”
Immediately afterward, he posted on his network, Truth Social, that the accusation “is an attack on our country of a magnitude never seen before (….) The United States is now a Third World country, a country in dangerous decline.”
The grand jury, the body that examines cases and decides whether or not there is a basis for a trial, has been watched with great media interest since Trump himself confirmed ten days ago that its 23 members would confirm his indictment and immediately thereafter. He would be caught, which ultimately did not happen.
Until yesterday, it was believed that the grand jury would postpone its decision until the end of April, but today the decision came as a surprise.
It must be remembered that the grand jury’s decision comes on the eve of the so-called “spring break”, the spring break that usually coincides with Christian Holy Week and the Jewish Passover, a few days when many establishments are closed or run at half speed. ..
for his part, The Wall Street Journal She asserts that in its recent meetings — which were not public, so their content is known only through leaks — the grand jury examined a second case of another Playboy model who also accuses Trump of paying her to keep quiet about a sexual relationship.
Model Karen McDougal, who was 1998’s “Playboy Girl” says she had a ten-month sexual relationship with Trump in 2006 and struck a deal to publish his story with The National Enquirer for $150,000, but the newspaper – which is owned by a friend of Trump – He bought his degree to hide it.
The details are important, as they would mean that Stormy Daniels’ accusation is no longer isolated and that there is a pattern of behavior on Trump’s part, which increases the likelihood of his guilt.
So far, there has been no movement by his supporters to protest the court’s decision, as he asked if that would happen.
Trump’s former attorney Michael Cohen also issued a statement, in a very restrained tone, in which he essentially pointed out two pillars of the law: that all defendants have the right to the presumption of innocence, but at the same time he said he was “comforted.” By the fact that “no one is above the law, not even a former president.”
