Former US President Donald Trump indicted over hush money

Washington: Former US President Donald Trump was indicted on Thursday by a New York jury over hush money payments made to an adult film actress during his 2016 campaign.

He is the first former US president to face criminal charges.

Donald Trump's attorney Chris Kise called Trump’s indictment “the lowest point in history for our criminal justice system.”

“What was once the most respected and revered district attorney’s office in the nation has been fully bastardized by an opportunistic politician seeking, like many others, to cash in on the Trump brand,” Kise told CNN. “The complete lack of legal basis, coupled with the politically targeted nature of the prosecution, should strike fear into every citizen in this country irrespective of their views of President Trump.”

Former President Donald Trump faces more than 30 counts related to business fraud in an indictment from a Manhattan grand jury, according to two sources familiar with the case, reports CNN.

Prosecutors asked Trump to surrender and to face arraignment on charges that remain unknown for now, reports UNI.

The Manhattan District Attorney's office has been looking into Trump's alleged role in a hush money payment and cover-up involving adult film star Stormy Daniels during the lead-up to the 2016 election.

Meanwhile, Donald Trump is expected to appear in court Tuesday for his arraignment, multiple sources tell CNN.
