The Manhattan district attorney would be in charge of arresting Donald Trump if the grand jury approves the indictment against him for tax and bank fraud. The case is related to an alleged payment to buy the silence of a porn actress named Stormy Daniels. This actress maintains that she met Trump at a celebrity golf tournament in Lake Tahoe in July 2006. Trump denies the affair and any wrongdoing.
Furthermore, this case revolves around a $130,000 payment made by Trump’s former personal attorney, Michael Cohen, to Daniels in 2016, just before the presidential election. Prosecutors say this was an illegal campaign contribution intended to influence the outcome of the vote. Cohen pleaded guilty to violating campaign finance laws and other crimes in 2018 and cooperated with investigators. He proclaims that Trump instructed him to make the payment and then reimbursed him.
Additionally, Trump’s possible arrest has also had political and diplomatic repercussions. The Republican Party has denounced a political persecution against its leader. Also, he accuses Biden of being behind his possible arrest. Despite everything, there is still no new news of his possible arrest and the former president is still at large.
