Hey! Trump has been indicted!

I was a little surprised to not see a story about Trump's indictment in this Group.


Donald Trump indictment: What to know about falsifying business records

Several hot-button legal inquiries loom over former President Donald Trump -- everything from election interference and misuse of classified documents to defamation of a writer after an alleged rape.

However, the indictment and arraignment of Trump earlier this week, the first for an ex-president in U.S. history, has drawn the nation's attention to a rarely discussed white-collar financial crime: falsifying business records.

As part of a scheme to reimburse former Trump attorney Michael Cohen for hush money payments to porn actress Stormy Daniels, Trump fraudulently recorded $130,000 in expenses as the cost of legal services for Cohen, the indictment alleges.

In Manhattan criminal court, Trump pleaded not guilty on Tuesday to all 34 counts of falsifying business records. He has denied having sex with Daniels.
