  • Introduction to Video Content
  • Former U.S. President Donald Trump has been invited to testify before a grand jury in New York, signaling the possibility of criminal charges. The invitation comes from prosecutors, and such invitations often imply that charges are imminent. At the center of this case is the money that was paid to adult film star Stormy Daniels to allegedly keep her from publicly discussing an affair she claimed to have had with Trump years ago. The payment was made right before the 2016 election, amounting to $130,000, and Trump's then-personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, stated that he made the payment and was subsequently reimbursed by Trump. The criminal investigation focuses on the classification of these payments and whether the records were falsified to label them as legal expenses. Cohen has already been convicted on various charges related to this situation. If Trump is charged, it would be the first time a former president faces charges. Whether he testifies or not remains uncertain, as he has already expressed his innocence and labeled the case as a political witch hunt on his social media platform. This is just one of several legal challenges Trump is currently facing, including a civil lawsuit in New York that alleges widespread fraud and seeks $250 million in penalties, as well as an investigation in Georgia regarding his attempts to overturn the 2020 election.
  • Subtitles section
  • Former U.S. President Donald Trump has been invited to testify before a New York grand jury.
  • The offer comes from prosecutors.
  • Such invitations often indicate criminal charges are coming.
  • The CBC's Mugta Gebresela says on this story from Washington.
  • Okay, what do we know so far about the details here?
  • Well, at the root of this case is money that was paid to adult film star Stormy Daniels to allegedly keep her from going public about an affair that she said she had with Trump years ago.
  • So this happened right before the 2016 election, and it was about a $130,000 payment that was made to her.
  • Michael Cohen, who then was Trump's personal lawyer, said he made the payment and then he was reimbursed by Trump.
  • So this criminal investigation is about how those payments were classified, according to several media reports around whether these records were falsified, labeling these repayments as legal expenses.
  • Cohen has already served time on various charges, including ones related to this situation.
  • So if Trump does get charged with anything, it would be the first time that a former president faces charges.
  • And he may testify, he may not testify.
  • We're just going to have to wait and see what he decides to do.
  • But he's already had a lot to say through his social media platform.
  • He wrote that he has done nothing wrong, that he never had an affair with Stormy Daniels, and he called the prosecution's case a political witch hunt.
  • Now, this, of course, is just one of many legal challenges that Trump is facing.
  • Also in New York, there is the civil lawsuit alleging widespread fraud by Trump, his family and his organization, and seeking $250 million in penalties.
  • You also have the investigation in Georgia looking into Trump's efforts to overturn the 2020 election.
  • The Department of Justice also looking into that, as well as their continued investigation into those classified documents that were found at Trump's Florida home.
  • So there is a lot to keep track of when it comes to Trump.
  • Thanks for this.
  • That is the CBC's Magda Gabriel-Solace in Washington.
