Trump Indictment Will Put "Derivative Crimes" on Steroids Forever

  • The indictment will take place this afternoon—Trump will leave his Trump Tower penthouse at 10:30am and travel to the district courthouse in Manhattan.
  • Trump is expected to be charged with (A) authorizing hush money payments to Stormy Daniels; (B) listing those payments falsely as campaign financing; and (C) reimbursing Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen and claiming them as legal expenses.
