Evidence will be presented which could lay the groundwork for criminal charges against Donald Trump over his hush money payments to porn star Stormy Daniels.
Trump-Stormy Daniels case for grand jury
The case involving former US president Donald Trump’s role in hush money payments to porn star Stormy Daniels during his 2016 presidential campaign will go before a grand jury, the New York Times reports, citing people with knowledge of the matter.
The Manhattan district attorney’s office will start presenting its evidence in the case on Monday, the newspaper reported, which would lay the groundwork for any criminal charges against Trump.
A witness in the case, former National Enquirer publisher David Pecker, was seen entering the lower Manhattan building where the grand jury is empanelled, the Times reported. The publisher had offered to help Trump by buying rights to unflattering stories and never publishing them.
The moves are an indication that the district attorney, Alvin Bragg, is closer to a decision on whether to charge Trump.
