A Manhattan Grand Jury voted to indict President Trump.
Donald Trump is the first ex-president to ever be charged with a ‘crime.’
The exact charges are not known at this time.
Trump has been accused of paying porn star Stormy Daniels ‘hush payments’ through his then-attorney Michael Cohen in a scheme to silence her and stop the story about their alleged affair from being published in the National Enquirer.
Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg elevated the Stormy ‘hush payment’ case from a misdemeanor to a felony earlier this year in a effort to ‘get Trump.’
Trump’s lawyer confirmed the indictment.
