Circus Comes To Manhattan!
The Manhattan grand jury on Thursday officially indicted former President Donald Trump. This is the first time in American history a president has faced such an indictment.
The charges against Trump were filed under seal but will be announced in the coming days. It’s presumed they involve payment of hush money many years ago to porno actress Stormy Daniels.
Rumors of the indictment had circulated for a few weeks, but Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg kept delaying the matter. The confirmation Thursday came as a surprise.
Trump’s camp issued a statement, saying, “This is not an indictment of a crime—there was no crime—instead, this news is the indictment of a failed nation. President Trump is promising to peacefully end the war in Ukraine, dismantle the deep state, and save our country by putting America first. For that, the political elites and powerbrokers have weaponized government to try and stop him. They will fail. He will be re-elected in the greatest landslide in American history, and together we will all Make America Great Again.” More from Newsmax TV.

The New York Police Department ordered a full staff mobilization, fearing possible unrest and violence. Meanwhile, word leaked late Friday that Trump will appear in New York to hear the indictment on Tuesday, April 4.
