Answering Your Questions About the Trump Criminal Trial.

Monday, June 3, 2024 update:

On Thursday, May 30, a jury of everyday Americans bravely convicted Donald Trump of deceiving voters and interfering in our elections despite facing intimidation and threats.

The jury found Trump guilty on all 34 felony counts of falsifying business records in connection with hush-money payments made to adult film star Stormy Daniels, which were intended to prevent Daniels’ claims that she had an affair with Trump from becoming public during the 2016 presidential election.

The guilty verdict makes Trump the first former American president to be convicted of felony crimes. 

This unanimous decision is a crucial step toward accountability for the American people.


Stormy Daniels? Hush Money? Is Donald Trump on Trial? 

If you’re online, then you’ll have seen the tornado of news headlines about the historic criminal charges Donald Trump is facing for election interference and the trial underway in his home state of New York. 

With news breaking every hour and so much at stake, it can be hard to keep up with the most essential information. 

Let’s break it down:

Why Is Trump on Trial?

Trump is facing 34 felony charges related to hush-money payments he made to the adult film star Stormy Daniels.

Not only did he attempt to hide the payments, but he did so to stem bad press and conceal information from voters just months before the 2016 presidential election. 

The payment was one of many tactics Trump used before the 2016 election to keep voters in the dark so he would not lose the election. 

Is Trump America’s first president to be indicted on criminal charges? 

Yes. Not only is Trump the first American president, former or sitting, to face a criminal trial, but the proceedings also play out against a 2024 presidential race in which he is the first American presidential candidate in over a century to face criminal charges while running for office. 

Before the case began, Trump was indicted by a jury of everyday Americans, who weighed the evidence and determined he must stand trial to ensure we apply the law equally to all.

What about Trump’s other charges?

Trump is currently under investigation for 91 felony charges across four criminal cases, including for his attempts to overturn the results of the 2020 election, culminating in the deadly attack on the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021.

Trump was recently found guilty of civil fraud. The judge said the former president’s “complete lack of contrition” bordered on pathological.

What’s at stake with another Trump Presidency?

It’s safe to say another Trump presidency would be devastating to American democracy.

Since announcing his bid for the 2024 presidential election, Trump has threatened to abuse his power to punish his political opponents, vowed to act as a dictator for the first day of his presidency, and promised to retaliate against the Biden family by ordering a special counsel to investigate them.

And he’s touting an extreme and anti-democratic agenda, threatening to abuse power, celebrating the end of Roe v. Wade, and promising to enact cruel and out-of-touch policies.
