Trump To Become First Ex-President To Stand Trial in Criminal Case

The former US President Donald Trump has become the first ex-US president to stand trial in a criminal case.

Trump has arrived in New York City to face the court for paying $130,000 hush money to hide information from the American voters in 2016.

Upon arrival, Trump said the case was nonsense and it was an assault on American democracy.

Trump’s Hush Money Case

The former President has been accused of falsifying his business record for paying $130,000 to Stormy Daniels, a former adult film star, in order to buy her silence.

The case revolves around accusations that Trump paid off several people before the 2016 presidential campaign to silence them that he engaged in extramarital sexual encounters.

Trump faces 34 counts of falsifying business records after he allegedly repaid his lawyer, Michael Cohen, for the payments but listed them as legal fees, the Guardian reported.
