“A criminal conspiracy and a coverup”: First-ever criminal trial of a former US president | DW News

Donald Trump is accused of "A criminal conspiracy and a coverup": On day one of his trial in a Manhattan courtroom, prosecutors allege a long-running scheme to influence the 2016 election through illegal payments. They say Trump paid hush money to the porn star known as Stormy Daniels to cover up a sexual encounter she claims he had with her in 2006.
