New York Could Soon Charge Trump with Financial Crimes

HeadlineMar 10, 2023

Here in New York, prosecutors have signaled they may soon bring charges against former President Donald Trump for campaign finance violations and other crimes. On Thursday, The New York Times reported Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg invited Trump to testify next week before a grand jury that’s been investigating a $130,000 hush money payment Trump sent to adult-film actress Stormy Daniels through an intermediary. In 2018, Trump’s former personal attorney and fixer, Michael Cohen, pleaded guilty to charges of tax evasion, bank fraud and lying to Congress about the hush money payments. Cohen says Trump directed him to make them through a shell company shortly before the 2016 presidential election.
