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.
Trump’s Legal Storm
Former US President Donald Trump finds himself at the center of a legal storm as shocking indictments pile up against him.
Trump’s world was rocked by charges related to his alleged attempts to overturn the 2020 election and the infamous Capitol riots of January 6, 2021.
While the charges may sound daunting, they may just be the beginning of a massive legal ordeal for the controversial Republican.
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.
Facing Jail Time
Trump faced a staggering 34 felony counts in March, making him the first former president indicted for falsifying business records.
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.
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.
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.
Comparing His Plight to That of the Nazi Persecution
Trump’s alleged mishandling of sensitive documents, including matters of national security, drew attention due to his unsecured storage practices.
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.
Leaked Phone Conversations
While not formally charged, Trump’s shadow looms over investigations into his attempts to overturn Georgia’s 2020 election results following his defeat by Joe Biden.
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.”
Though not yet indicted, Trump’s involvement in the Georgia case remains under scrutiny as investigators delve deeper into his alleged interference.
Escalating Legal Troubles
As legal troubles escalate, the former president faces more and more scrutiny, a far cry from his days in the Oval Office.
Amidst the chaos of indictments, Trump’s standing as a former president does little to shield him from the legal storm brewing around him.
