Donald Trump Found Guilty On All Counts

The former president was charged with 34 felony counts of falsifying business records for allegedly covering up a "hush money" payment before the 2016 election. Sentencing is set for July 11th.

After several weeks of testimony, Donald J. Trump has been found guilty on all counts.

The trial began in April and Trump was charged with 34 felony counts of falsifying business records, allegedly to cover up a "hush money" payment before the 2016 election. Throughout the trial, lawyers from Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg's office alleged that the reimbursements were part of a scheme that amounted to "election fraud, pure and simple." 

Judge to Hold Hearing to Determine If Fani Willis Should Be Disqualified From Trump Case

As the hush money trial comes to an end, Trump still has several more cases that could go to trial this year. Trump's classified documents case in Florida had been set for May 20, but U.S. District Court Judge Aileen Cannon said that the trial is “indefinitely postponed” on May 7.

A trial date in the Fulton County election subversion case is not yet set although prosecutors are requesting August 5. Currently, the trial is without a date while Trump and several of his co-defendants try to disqualify District Attorney Fani Willis who originally brought the charges.
