Donald Trump appeared in court in New York, where he was arrested and later charged. This involved donating money to adult film actress Stormy Daniels in exchange for her silence during the election campaign. Trump is the first US President to be impeached.
Donald Trump’s impeachment was kept secret until the last minute. The former US president faces 34 charges, to which he has pleaded not guilty, CNN reported. The charges include falsifying accounting records and conspiracy.
Reuters reports that five photographers will be allowed into the courtroom before charges are filed. Trump’s lawyers have requested that the media be denied access. According to them, the presence of journalists and photographers will worsen the “already almost circus atmosphere”.
NBC, among others, requested permission to use the cameras. Journalists argued that this was the first time in American history that a former president of the country had been indicted.
