New York jury convicts Donald Trump on 34 felony counts of falsifying business records

A New York jury has found Donald Trump guilty on all 34 criminal counts of falsifying business records in his so-called “hush money trial” about payments he made to porn star Stormy Daniels to keep her quiet in the run-up to the 2016 election. He is the first U.S. President to be convicted of  felony crimes.

Trump will be sentenced July 11 at 10:00 a.m. Eastern Time by Judge Juan Merchan, who presided over the case.

The charges against Trump are all Class E felonies, and each count carries a maximum sentence of four years in prison. Trump’s age (77), his previous criminal record and conduct during the trial could all be factors in Judge Merchan’s ultimate decision about his sentence. That could also be a problem for the former president, who throughout the trial openly attacked the judge on social media and accused him of political bias.

He still faces 89 more criminal indictments across four jurisdictions. Tina faces a criminal trial herself for charges related to election tampering, on July 29, 2024, after she bought into Trump’s “Big Lie” that he won the 2020 presidential election.

  1. Honestly, much like ol’ Tina Peters, I love this whole persecution complex Trump is descending into. All very Christian-Nationalist. Because we all know how Jesus felt about adultery, rape, liars, cheats, and false “profits”. But perhaps the deepest irony of this whole case is that a pornstar f’d him harder in court than whatever he could muster between the sheets. So let him run his big mouth, while still under this gag-order, all the way to sentence at Rikers Island. Then the party of “Law & Order” is going to nominate him for president. So three cheers, its 34 for 43…and counting!



    • STFU, you whinging, breathless clown. This man you clearly worship can barely utter a coherent thought, drink a glass of water, let alone cheat on his wife with a pornstar, without a lot of help. Though maybe you see that same fumbling impotence in yourself, who knows. But go on…share some more moronic, red herring quotes or tell us what a persecuted “Christian” he is.

  3. No politician ever paid someone to be quiet before? Falsifying business records? Can anybody say how the payments to his lawyer should have been recorded as? I ma neutral politically, and do not like Trump, but I have to agree that it is a 3rd world railroad job.

    • So he should be allowed to get away with breaking the law just because he’s a political cadidate?

      The charges files against him are legitimate. He broke the law, he was tried by a jury of his peers, and was convicted. Where’s the railroading?

    • Don’t worry; no one expects you to actually look up the details of the prosecution’s (successful) argument. No one expects you to understand that paying your lawyer to reimburse him for criminal activities (that he went to jail for) is criminal. It’s all vibes and hunches these days.

  4. Now, scores of his defense attorneys file lawsuits to get the former president, convicted felon, to pay their fees!

    • Trump’s lawyers (the smart ones, not the ideological ones) started demanding cash up front years ago.


      Sorry, guys. You’re reasonable people so you assume you’re dealing with reasonable people. In truth, we have been on the Island of Broken Toys for years. It’s all upside down. He’s already fundraising off this. Hell wear “convicted felon” as a badge of honor. We still haven’t figured out how to beat this guy.
