As per the decision of the New York grand jury, the former U.S. President Donald Trump has been indicted.  

According to the report by Axios: 

“A grand jury in New York on Thursday indicted former President Trump on charges related to an illegal hush money payment in 2016 to adult film star Stormy Daniels who alleged they had an affair, according to multiple outlets.”.

The news surfaced after many individuals were believing Trump’s indictment will not be taking place anytime this month. 

The Manhattan grand judges probing into Donald Trump’s hush money scandal will not be hearing any testimony or look into any potential evidence for the entire month. 

According to the report by Politico: 

“The break would push any indictment of the former president to late April at the earliest, although it is possible that the grand jury’s schedule could change. In recent weeks, the Manhattan district attorney’s office hasn’t convened the panel on certain days. But it is District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s prerogative to ask the grand jury to reconvene if prosecutors want the panel to meet during previously planned breaks.” 

The report further noted: 

“The grand jury, which heard testimony in the Trump case on Monday, isn’t meeting Wednesday and is expected to examine evidence in a separate matter Thursday, the person said. The grand jury, which typically meets Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, is scheduled to consider another case next week on Monday and Wednesday, the person said, and isn’t expected to meet Thursday due to the Passover holiday.”

The latest witness in Trump’s case was the former publisher of the National Enquirer, David Pecker, who testified in front of the grand jury earlier this week. 

The New York Post reported: 

“Pecker was a key player in the $150,000 “catch-and-kill” payment to former Playboy model Karen McDougal, in which the Enquirer bought the publishing rights to her claim that she — like Daniels — had an affair with Trump before he became president. The Enquirer never reported McDougal’s allegations but its parent company, American Media Inc., featured her in other publications. Trump has denied having sex with either woman and has denied any wrongdoing in connection with the payments to them.”
