Twice impeached and disgraced former president Donald Trump is the only former president arrested for criminal charges. Wow. How humiliating.
He weakly pleaded not guilty to 34 counts of falsifying business records related to hush money schemes. One is to Playboy Playmate Karen McDougal for $150,000. Another is a $130,000 hush-money payment made to adult-film actress Stormy Daniels aka Stephanie Clifford. The last is to his doorman who knew about one of his alleged illegitimate children.
Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen previously pleaded guilty to the payment. He was sentenced and served three years in prison for the same conspiracy.
This was right after the Access Hollywood tape came out right before the 2016 presidential election. He must have been desperate to hide these skeletons in his closet.
