The Manhattan District Attorney’s office recently warned Donald Trump’s lawyers that the former president faces criminal charges for his role in secret payments to a porn star. This was reported by four informed sources al New York Times.
The case of Stormy Daniel
The facts refer to October 2016 – in the middle of the electoral campaign – when Trump allegedly paid porn star Stormy Daniel to buy her silence about a relationship he allegedly had with her 10 years earlier. This was reported by four informed sources al New York Times. Trump has always denied having an affair with the woman. The money was allegedly given to Stormy Daniels by Michael Cohen, Trump’s former lawyer and de facto facilitator. Trump would later reimburse Cohen.
The possible repercussions
Prosecutors have offered the tycoon a chance to testify before a grand jury next week, a clear signal that an indictment is near. However, it is unlikely that Trump agrees to testify. But if the tycoon is indicted it would be a first for a former president and could undermine his run for 2024.
