Donald Trump remains to be one of the most controversial presidents that America has ever produced, immediately after Nixon. The sheer number of atrocities that he has committed over the years is definitely not great for his reputation. Recently there has been news that Donald Trump might not be simply related to controversies but he might have committed a crime himself.
Yes, there is proper evidence that Donald Trump is the first former President of the United States of America who has been charged with a crime. The crime is related to his alleged role in which he covered up a hush-money payment before his election in 2016. This can lead to serious consequences and Trump seems to face them!
What Do You Mean By An Indictment?
The United States of America has a different judiciary system than the rest of the countries and the rules vary from state to state. An indictment means that a person has already received a formal notice that states the strong belief of the judiciary that the recipient has committed a crime. The indictment informs the person about the crime he or she has committed and which has come under the investigation of the government. The nature of the charges is also explained in the indictment.
The Grand Jury of the Judiciary of the USA has indicted Donald Trump after hearing the testimonies from multiple witnesses. The specific charges will be made public soon after Trump has acknowledged his indictment within the given time.
What Was The Indictment For?
Donald Trump has been accused of being a misogynist and having a history with women from the beginning of his career. It has been recognized by the grand jury that he has paid about $130,000 payment to a porn star named Stormy Daniels. This was done during the times of his election campaign in 2016.
Donald Trump is accused of buying her silence with this amount about the encounter they had a few years ago. The former lawyer of Donald Trump has made some astonishing comments on this matter as well. Michael Cohen, his formal personal lawyer, has stated that he had coordinated with Trump for the payments he had made to Stormy Daniels and also to a Playboy model, Karen McDougal.
The former President has not agreed to any of these doings. He has stated that he has nothing to do with these two women and had no kind of affair with them as well. Hence, he is not ready to acknowledge any of the charges which had been brought up against him for paying these women in return for their silence.
The media houses have been storming the issue for a long time and they had speculated that the values might be passed off as legal expenses as Cohen has mentioned in his testimony. This could bring serious consequences for Donald Trump if the charges are proven. This would mean that he has used the campaign money to clear up his own dirt and present it as the legal cost.
Statement By Donald Trump
Donald Trump has stated that Stormy Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, has extorted him for money. He has claimed that he is completely innocent and the indictment is the latest move to destroy his image in front of the Native Americans who had thought his rule to be a great American movement.
He has repeatedly stated that his work was to make America great again and his methods are continuously criticized. He has enforced that this is yet another measure to ruin his public image. He has called this situation to be a “political persecution”.
Is This The Only Case?
Needless to say, this is not the single case that is being investigated against Trump at the moment. He is also facing an entire array of other investigations which might ruin him once and for all.
The top secret documents which were found at his residence in Florida are also being investigated by the judiciary at this moment. This is simply the cherry on the top and there are several other cases that have been found to be against Donald Trump. Panels have been set up in Georgia about other atrocities committed there and this will soon be brought under the same as the Florida estate.
All of these will be judged carefully because of his former stature as the President of the United States of America. The experts have suggested that the recent number of cases that are evolving around Manhattan right now might be the most dangerous allegation which has been brought against him till now. Only time will prove whether Donald Trump will be saved from the consequences or not.
Reaction Of The Common People
The Republicans have been in support of Trump and have declared this to be an effort of the recent government to throw off the efforts which were taken by Trump to bring America to “great glory”. They have not been able to speak anything substantial about how the charges are being piled upon one by one and the former president has no excuse for them.
The Democrats are relatively silent about the whole matter. It seems that they have placed complete faith in the government led by Joe Biden. The present president has not commented on the matter till now. The media houses of America are desperately looking for a statement on his behalf which might be the last nail in this coffin of mistakes done by Donald Trump during his time.
The entire regime of Donald Trump has proven that when the people are not satisfied with the government, there is something certainly wrong with the way the nation is being led. This is evident in the case of Donald Trump, who is facing charges for most of the cases he had done to get into power in 2016.
With more poking, a greater number of skeletons may fall from his closet of secrets in the election campaign of 2016. The judiciary of the United States of America seeks to find these and punish Trump for each of the misgivings of the past.
