Former President Donald Trump has been indicted by a Manhattan grand jury in connection to the hush money payment he allegedly made to adult film star Stephanie Clifford, aka Stormy Daniels, during the 2016 presidential campaign.
According to NBC News, the indictment is currently under seal.
Two sources reportedly confirmed to NBC News that Trump’s lawyers have been notified of the indictment.
The investigation is being conducted by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg.
If true, this would be the first time in U.S. history a former president has been indicted.
The news will send shockwaves through American politics and throw the 2024 presidential election into upheaval.
Bragg’s probe has largely been viewed as a politically motivated attempt to impair Trump’s future political ambitions.
