Rumors have been circulating for several days about a possible criminal indictment against Trump by a grand jury, as part of the investigation led by New York State District Attorney Alvin Bragg, a democratically elected magistrate.

“At least one” of the witnesses in an investigation under pressure from Donald Trump is believed to have lied

The research focuses on a payment of $130,000 made two weeks before the 2016 presidential election, which Trump won, to a porn actress known as Stormy Daniels to keep her quiet about a relationship that says he had stood with Trump a few years earlier.

The former president has repeatedly denied that relationship and assured that the investigation has political motives.

In his Saturday post on Truth Social, Trump referred to “illegal leaks from a highly politicized and corrupt Manhattan district attorney’s office,” and said the investigation was “based on an old and completely debunked fairy tale (! by many other prosecutors !)”. .

If charged, Trump, 76, would become the first former US president to be charged with a crime. This would affect his chances of becoming the Republican presidential nominee for the 2024 election.

Trump faces several state and federal criminal investigations for possible misconduct before, during and after his term in office that threatens his new career in the White House.
