It is a local prosecutor in New York who has decided to try to prosecute Donald Trump for paying porn star Stormy Daniels to keep quiet about the parties' alleged affair 20 years ago.
According to the prosecutor, Trump should have booked the payment as a campaign expense in his election campaign and reported it publicly, even though it was paid with private money.< /p>
According to the prosecutor, the purpose of the payment was to avoid writing about the porn star and Trump during the election campaign, and it was thus a campaign expense. However, the legal situation is unclear.
The announcement came at 11.30pm on Thursday evening Swedish time. It is the first time that a former US president has been charged with a crime.
However, many speculate that Joe Biden will be charged with a crime regardless of who takes over as president after him. This as a result of the extensive corruption that he dealt with together with his son Hunter Biden.
