Earlier this month, Trump pleaded not guilty to 34 counts of falsifying business records when he faced a New York judge — becoming the first United States president to be indicted and charged with a felony.
“Not guilty,” Trump said when asked how he pleaded. He sat next to his defense team in the Manhattan courtroom with his hands folded on his lap and a frosty look ahead of the unprecedented hearing in the Stormy Daniels hush money case.
The charges relate to a $30,000 payout to a doorman trying to sell information about a child Trump allegedly fathered out of wedlock; $150,000 to former Playboy model Karen McDougal and a $130,000 payment to Daniels.
The prosecution alleges that the incidents show that Trump plotted to buy damaging stories about himself to keep it a secret and improve his chances of winning the 2016 presidential race.
“It’s not just about one payment,” District Attorney Alvin Bragg said at a news conference after the hearing. “It’s 34 business documents – 34 false statements and business documents. They covered up criminal behavior.’
All told, the charges – falsifying business records in the first degree – carry a maximum sentence of more than 100 years in prison under New York law, but even if convicted on all charges, Trump is unlikely to that time is condemned. Each charge is a low misdemeanor punishable by up to four years in prison for each charge.
There was no formal conspiracy charge, but the facts released by prosecutors describe how Trump “orchestrated a plan” with others to influence the 2016 presidential election by identifying and buying negative information about him in order to suppress its publication and influence electoral prospects of the defendant. .’
At the hearing, Assistant District Attorney Christopher Conroy argued that the payments were part of “an illegal scheme to identify and suppress negative information that could have undermined Trump’s presidential campaign.”
