A New York grand jury indicted former President Donald Trump, charging him with 34 felony counts of falsifying business records. In his arraignment on Tuesday, Trump pleaded not guilty.
The formal indictment was released, revealing the charges related to a “catch and kill” plan that Trump allegedly organized in order to conceal information ahead of the 2016 election.
According to the indictment:
“The defendant, in the County of New York and elsewhere, on or about February 14, 2017, with intent to defraud and intent to commit another crime and aid and conceal the commission thereof, made and caused a false entry in the business records of an enterprise, to wit, an invoice from Michael Cohen dated February 14, 2017, marked as a record of the Donald J. Trump Revocable Trust, and kept and maintained by the Trump Organization.”
