Trump Found Guilty on All 34 Counts in Hush Money Case



Donald Trump became the first former American president to be convicted of felony crimes, with a New York jury finding him guilty of all 34 charges relating to a scheme to illegally influence the 2016 election through a hush money payment. The charges carry up to four years in prison, but it is unclear if this will be sought or imposed. The conviction will not bar Trump from continuing his White House pursuit, and the sentencing is set for July 11, just days before Republicans are set to select him as the 2024 nominee.

Trump Convicts Felony Crimes In Historic Trial

Former President Donald Trump made history as the first ex-US leader to be found guilty of felony crimes, following a verdict in a scheme to illegally influence the 2016 election via a hush money payment.

Trump’s sentencing is set for July 11, with questions surrounding his eligibility voting and possible impact on the 2024 election still unanswered.

Calling the trial “rigged,” Trump insists the true verdict will be delivered by the people on election day. Despite potential prison time in New York, Trump continues his White House pursuit with plans for campaign rallies and fundraisers.

The trial saw allegations that Trump manipulated business records to conceal a hush money payment to porn actor Stormy Daniels, who claimed to have had an affair with Trump. Michael Cohen, Trump’s former lawyer, testified that the payments were an unlawful attempt to mask the true purpose of the transaction.

Despite the conviction, Republicans remained supportive of Trump, labeling the trial as a political exercise. As the first criminal trial of a former US president, it represented a unique test for the court system. The verdict stands as a rejection of Trump’s efforts to undermine confidence in the proceedings.
