It could take a year for Trump to stand trial

Former President Donald Trump is unlikely to face a jury trial in New York for at least a year, according to one former U.S. attorney.

On Thursday, a grand jury indicted Trump following an investigation by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s office into an alleged hush money payment of $130,000 paid by his former lawyer, Michael Cohen, to adult film star Stormy Daniels to keep her quiet ahead of the 2016 presidential election about an affair she claims she had with Trump in 2006.

The former president has denied having an affair with Daniels and has maintained his innocence in the case, accusing prosecutors of engaging in a politically-motivated witch hunt. Prosecutors, however, believe the payment violated campaign finance laws. Trump has responded to the indictment with a flurry of posts on his social media platform Truth Social attacking the district attorney’s office.
