The New York County District Attorney charged the XPOTUS with 34 felony counts stemming from his payment of hush money to Stephanie Clifford, aka adult film actor Stormy Daniels:
The indictment against the former president, People of the State of New York against Donald J. Trump, Indictment No. 71543-23, has been unsealed.
The former president was charged with 34 felonies and pleaded not guilty before State Supreme Court Justice Juan M. Merchan.
The charges include filing false business records in the first degree, a low level felony that carries a maximum of four years in prison for each count, though if he is convicted a judge could sentence him to probation.
Trump has walked out of the courtroom and back into the district attorney’s office. He did not stop to talk to the press.
Unfortunately, the District Attorney declined to get a mug shot of the XPOTUS, probably because half the country would immediately change their social media profile photos to mock it. More seriously, the DA has discretion of mug shots, and understandably declined to take one for the same reason they didn't ask for bond. I mean, the XPOTUS has Federal law enforcement agents around him every minute of the day, and it's not like he can outrun them.
I still think Finland joining NATO is a more important story. So does the White House.
And if you're curious, the Post has the indictment and statement of facts for the case.
