A Manhattan Grand Jury voted to indict President Trump.
The exact charges are not known at this time.
Trump has been accused of paying porn star Stormy Daniels ‘hush payments’ through his then-attorney Michael Cohen in a scheme to silence her and stop the story about their alleged affair from being published in the National Enquirer.
Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg elevated the Stormy ‘hush payment’ case from a misdemeanor to a felony earlier this year in a effort to ‘get Trump.’

“This is Political Persecution and Election Interference at the highest level in history,” Trump’s message stated.

Read a transcript of the president’s message below:
“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, unconstitutional Mar-a-Lago raid; and now this.
“The Democrats have lied cheated and stolen in their obsession with trying to quote ‘Get Trump’ but now they’ve done the unthinkable – indicting a completely innocent person in an act of blatant Election Interference.
“Never before in our country Nation’s history has this been done. The Democrats have cheated countless times over the decades, including spying on my campaign, but weaponizing our justice system to punish a political opponent, who just so happens to be a President of United States, and by far the leading Republican candidate for president, has never happened before. Ever.
“Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg, who has who was handpicked and funded by George Soros, is a disgrace. Rather than stopping the unprecedented crime, wave taking over New York City, he’s doing Joe Biden‘s dirty work, ignoring the murders and burglaries and assault, he should be focused on. This is how Bragg spends his time
“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!”
