News just broke that former President Donald Trump, has been indicted by a New York Grand Jury.

While this is something that even Donald Trump saw coming, many are shocked to see it actually happened.

As it turns out, this indictment is historic, marking the first time ever that a former US president and major presidential candidate has ever been criminally charged.

What is Donald Trump being indicted for?

According to reports, a Manhattan grand jury has indicted Donald Trump for his involvement in a hush money scheme involving Donald Trump and adult film star Stormy Daniels.

The charges relate to a $130,000 payment made by Trump’s personal attorney at the time, Michael Cohen that was given to Stormy Daniels in late October 2016 just days before the 2016 presidential election.

The money was to silence her from going public about an alleged affair with Trump a decade earlier, although Trump has denied the affair.

Donald Trump faces more than 30 counts related to business fraud in this indictment.

Donald Trump responded to the indictment in a statement earlier today saying:

“This is Political Persecution and Election Interference at the highest level in history. From the time I came down the golden escalator at Trump Tower, and even before I was sworn in as your President of the United States, the Radical Left Democrats — the enemy of the hard-working men and women of this Country — have been engaged in a Witch-Hunt to destroy the Make America Great Again movement. You remember it just like I do: Russia, Russia, Russia; the Mueller Hoax; Ukraine, Ukraine, Ukraine; Impeachment Hoax 1; Impeachment Hoax 2; the illegal and unconstitutional Mar-a-Lago raid; and now this.


“The Democrats have lied, cheated and stolen in their obsession with trying to ‘Get Trump,’ but now they’ve done the unthinkable — indicting a completely innocent person in an act of blatant Election Interference. 


“Never before in our Nation’s history has this been done. The Democrats have cheated countless times over the decades, including spying on my campaign, but weaponizing our justice system to punish a political opponent, who just so happens to be a President of the United States and by far the leading Republican candidate for President, has never happened before. Ever.


“Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg, who was hand-picked and funded by George Soros, is a disgrace. Rather than stopping the unprecedented crime wave taking over New York City, he’s doing Joe Biden’s dirty work, ignoring the murders and burglaries and assaults he should be focused on. This is how Bragg spends his time!


“I believe this Witch-Hunt will backfire massively on Joe Biden. The American people realize exactly what the Radical Left Democrats are doing here. Everyone can see it. So our Movement, and our Party — united and strong — will first defeat Alvin Bragg, and then we will defeat Joe Biden, and we are going to throw every last one of these Crooked Democrats out of office so we can MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!”


What happens next now that Donald Trump has been indicted?

Now that Donald Trump has been indicted, he will need to surrender himself.

A spokesperson for Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg released a statement Thursday saying the office has contacted Trump’s attorney to “coordinate his surrender” for arraignment on “a Supreme Court indictment, which remains under seal.”

And in case you’re wondering, this does mean that Donald Trump would likely be arrested, taken into custody and have his fingerprints and mug shot taken.

Basically, just like a traditional booking for anyone being charged with a felony.

Trump is expected to appear in court Tuesday for his arraignment and we will know more then.
