It’s been a wild ride since Trump became president in 2016, and it’s easy to get lost in all the accusations (and there are a lot.) So here’s a list of all of Trump’s charges so far.
A Twist in Trump’s Saga
Former US President Donald Trump finds himself at the center of a legal storm as shocking indictments pile up against him.
Facing the Music
Trump’s world was rocked by charges related to his alleged attempts to overturn the 2020 election and the infamous Capitol riots of January 6th, 2021.
The Tip of the Iceberg
While the charges may sound daunting, they may just be the beginning of a massive legal ordeal for the controversial Republican.
A Challenge to Conquer
Trump seems to be embracing the challenge of accumulating more and more indictments, defying his status as a former president, so here is our list of all of Trump’s alleged scandals.
The Stormy Daniels Case
Trump faced a staggering 34 felony counts in March, making him the first former president indicted for falsifying business records.
A Stormy Affair
The charges relate to hush money payments, including a notable $130,000 to porn actress Stormy Daniels, who claimed an affair with Trump before the 2016 election.
A Reckoning Is Looming
Trump’s alleged involvement in potentially falsifying these payments could lead to up to four years in prison for each charge, with a trial scheduled for next March.
Classified Documents Scandal
In June, Trump confronted a different legal battle as he was charged with 40 felony counts tied to his handling of classified documents post-White House exit.
Mishandling of Secrets
Trump’s alleged mishandling of sensitive documents, including matters of national security, drew attention due to his unsecured storage practices.
The Election Denial Saga
Adding fuel to the fire, the latest charges include four counts of conspiracy linked to Trump’s role in election denial and the Capitol attack on January 6, 2021.
Accused of conspiring to defraud the United States and obstructing official proceedings, Trump’s response on Truth Social was swift and defensive calling himself “Innocent” and even comparing his plight to that of the Nazi persecution.
Georgia’s Electoral Mess
Trump also faces an additional 13 criminal counts relating to his attempts to overturn Georgia’s 2020 election results, following his defeat by Joe Biden.
A Desperate Phone Call
Leaked phone conversations revealed Trump’s urging Georgia’s secretary of state to “find 11780 votes”, the exact number he needed to win the election, calling the call, “perfect.”
Trump was indicted in Georgia alongside 19 co-conspirators, including Sidney Powell and Rudy Giuliani.
A Time of Intense Scrutiny
As legal troubles escalate, the former president faces more and more scrutiny, a far cry from his days in the Oval Office.
A Former President’s Struggle
Amidst the chaos of indictments, Trump’s standing as a former president does little to shield him from the legal storm brewing around him.
