This is a first for an American head of state. Suspected of having falsified campaign expenses and therefore criminally charged, Donald Trump appeared before a Manhattan court judge on Tuesday, where he pleaded not guilty to the 34 charges against him. A few hours later, the former president of the United States of America returned to his residence in Florida, before speaking publicly about the case and calling his accusation an “insult to the nation”.
“I never imagined this possible in America“, he exclaimed, before adding: “the only crime I have committed is to bravely defend our nation against those who seek to destroy it.“. As a reminder, he is suspected of hiding the costs of payments relating to “three shameful cases”, according to prosecutor Alvin Bragg.
Trump Tower doorman who claimed to have information about hidden child paid $30,000 to keep quiet, reports say The Parisian. A woman posing as a former housekeeper was paid $150,000 to be discreet. Finally, the case that seems to be making the most noise is pornographic actress Stormy Daniels, who allegedly received $130,000 from the Republican to keep quiet about an alleged extramarital affair.
Stormy Daniels sentenced to more than 100,000 euros
On the latter case, Stormy Daniels was sentenced on the same day to pay Trump’s lawyers $121,972 (€111,344). Ivanka and Tiffany’s father had long been asking the actress to reimburse him for the attorneys’ fees he had to pay to defend himself when she sued him for defamation.
She had made this decision after her statements were challenged by her famous lover, who had just explained that a stranger had threatened her in a parking lot to keep her quiet about her affair with Trump. The latter took over his Twitter account to qualify these comments.”total fraud“. The actress had filed a complaint at the time but ultimately lost her case after a federal judge ruled that this tweet constituted “.a rhetorical hyperbole typically associated with politics and public discourse in the United States“.
