The former president of the United States, Donald Trump, has been charged in the framework of the investigation against him for allegedly paying a bribe to porn actress Stephanie Clifford, known as Stormy Daniels.
“For the first time in our nation’s history, a President has been impeached. I take solace in validating the adage that no one is above the law, not even a former president. Today’s indictment is not the end of this chapter, but the beginning”, said Trump’s former lawyer, Michael Cohen.
The Manhattan District Attorney’s Office had offered Trump the possibility of testifying in this case of alleged bribery, in which Cohen was instrumental in giving Clifford about $ 130,000 (120,000 euros) to not reveal that he maintained alleged relations with the tycoon almost 20 years ago; a management carried out irregularly by being hidden in the accounts of the Trump Organization, Trump’s company, during the 2016 election campaign.
His legal team had been anticipating for weeks that Trump would end up impeached and is already finalizing its strategy when this happens.
According to sources, Trump will appear in Manhattan once the indictments are handed down and is scheduled to give a speech after the preliminary hearing.
