Donald Trump has been indicted by a New York City grand jury on charges of falsifying business records stemming from payments he made to adult film star Stormy Daniels to prevent her from revealing an affair he had with her before the 2016 election.
Mr Trump is reportedly facing more than 30 counts related to business fraud, sources told CNN after the indictment became public.
Ms Daniels, whose legal name is Stephanie Gregory Clifford, allegedly received ‘hush money’ payments via Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen (AP).
The disgraced former lawyer, who was disbarred following his federal guilty plea, has been a key witness against Mr Trump.

“It may have been the least impressive sex I’d ever had” Stormy Daniels on her alleged affair with Donald Trump.
Yet another investigation by federal officials isn’t targeting Mr Trump personally but could potentially imperil him in the future. »
