After failing to convict President Trump on any criminal charges or successfully convict him in multiple different instances, Democrats are once again attempting to discredit him with criminal charges stemming from payments made to Stormy Daniels years ago.
Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen was already sentenced to three years in federal prison after being convicted on campaign finance charges and tax evasion charges in relation to the payments.
The Manhattan District Attorney’s Office is now pursuing criminal charges against Trump as a result of the payments, led by District Attorney Alvin Bragg.
A court source has said that an indictment could be handed down as soon as next week as attorneys from the DA’s office reportedly requested a meeting with law enforcement before the indictment.
A grand jury has already convened ahead of the indictment, Trump was invited to testify but declined to do so.

Trump spokesperson Steven Cheung responded to the potential indictment on Friday, proclaiming Trump’s innocence and attacking Democrats for what he and Trump see as another politically charged prosecution.

“President Donald J. Trump is completely innocent, he did nothing wrong, and even the biggest, most Radical Left Democrats are making that clear,” Cheung said. “From Russia, Russia, Russia, to the Mueller Hoax, to Impeachment Hoaxes 1 and 2, and even the Unlawful Mar-a-Lago Raid, Democrats have investigated and attacked President Trump since before he was elected – and they’ve failed every time.”
“Now Democrats are at it again, pushing the ‘Nuclear Button’ and attacking a President because of a disgraced extortionist,” he said. “This is happening because President Trump is leading in the polls by a large margin against both Democrats and Republicans, and there’s never been anything so blatant in American political history.”
“Everyone knows it’s a sham. In fact, the Department of Justice stocked the DA’s office with top people from DC to help ‘Get Trump’ at a local level. Americans will not tolerate Radical Left Democrats turning our justice system into an injustice system to influence a presidential election, which is all they want to do. Our Country is not going to let this happen.”
