On Thursday evening, former President Donald Trump was indicted by a Manhattan jury in relation to payments made to former model and porn actress Stormy Daniels.

People familiar with the matter said that Trump would likely be arraigned next week.  Trump’s attorneys previously indicated that he would voluntarily surrender to law enforcement if an indictment was issued.

Trump offered the following statement roughly an hour after news broke of the indictment:

“This is Political Persecution and Election Interference at the highest level in history. From the time I came down the golden escalator at Trump Tower, and even before I was sworn in as your President of the United States, the Radical Left Democrats — the enemy of the hard-working men and women of this Country — have been engaged in a Witch-Hunt to destroy the Make America Great Again movement. You remember it just like I do: Russia, Russia, Russia; the Mueller Hoax; Ukraine, Ukraine, Ukraine; Impeachment Hoax 1; Impeachment Hoax 2; the illegal and unconstitutional Mar-a-Lago raid; and now this.” The former President said.

“I believe this Witch-Hunt will backfire massively on Joe Biden. The American people realize exactly what the Radical Left Democrats are doing here. Everyone can see it. So our Movement, and our Party — united and strong — will first defeat Alvin Bragg, and then we will defeat Joe Biden, and we are going to throw every last one of these Crooked Democrats out of office so we can MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!” He concluded.

Trump’s sons, Eric and Donald Trump Jr. offered statements of their own after it was revealed that President Trump had been indicted.

Donald Trump Jr. said that Democrats were ‘interfering’ in the 2024 election by prosecuting Trump.

He also alleged that RINOs (Republicans In Name Only) were secretly happy about the indictment, but urged people from all over the ideological spectrum in the Republican party to unify in opposing it, warning that they are not safe from politically biased prosecutors.

Eric Trump called the indictment ‘third world prosecutorial misconduct’, echoing his brother’s allegations that the prosecution was politically motivated and to stop Trump from running in the 2024 Presidential election.

This is a developing story.
