Well, this is a first in presidential history. A grand jury in New York voted to indict former president Donald Trump on multiple charges on March 30, 2023. The exact charges are unknown, but the jury was focused on a hush money payment that Trump associate Michael Cohen previously made to adult film star Stormy Daniels prior to the 2016 election.

The payment was intended to silence Daniels after she claimed that she and Trump had an affair in 2006. Cohen was believed to have paid her $130,000 of his own money, which he was later reimbursed for by Trump.

After Trump's indictment was announced, the former president released a statement regarding the verdict.

"This is Political Persecution and Election Interference at the highest level in history...The Democrats have lied, cheated and stolen in their obsession with trying to ‘Get Trump,’ but now they’ve done the unthinkable - indicting a completely innocent person in an act of blatant Election Interference... I believe this Witch-Hunt will backfire massively on Joe Biden... we are going to throw every last one of these Crooked Democrats out of office so we can MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!”
