Donald Trump to Reveal Bond Details as Letitia James Poised to Strike
Quick Glance: Trump Faces Landmark Trial Over Hush Money Case
  • Donald Trump will go down in history as the first former president to stand trial in Manhattan on criminal charges. The historic case revolves around a potential sex scandal cover-up just days before the 2016 elections.

  • The prosecution alleges that Trump falsified business records to hide hush money payments aimed at influencing the election outcome. Trump maintains his innocence and refutes any involvement with Stormy Daniels.

  • The trial will feature key witnesses from Trump's inner circle testifying against him, including Michael Cohen and David Pecker. It will delve into the Oval Office, where Trump allegedly approved the cover-up.

  • Prosecutors must prove that Trump falsified business records with intent to commit or conceal another crime. Trump's defense is likely to focus on the legality of the hush money payments and attempt to distance him from the accounting handled by his employees.

Quick Glance: Trump's Sex Life Unveiled as Hush Money Trial Begins
  • The opening day of Donald Trump’s criminal trial delved deep into his tabloid-fodder sex life, as lawyers and the judge debated how many salacious details jurors should eventually hear as they decide whether he broke the law to cover up hush money payments.

  • The historic first trial of a former U.S. president began Monday in a storied courthouse that has seen a host of high-profile cases over the years, from rap stars to movie moguls, but never one with such potential consequences for the nation and the world.

  • Despite Trump's open contempt for the trial, he was not disruptive in court but rather disinterested. However, Trump's lawyers managed to prevent jurors from being informed about specific allegations of sexual misconduct from 2016.

  • Prosecutors plan to highlight Trump's relationship with adult-film actress Stormy Daniels and other women in court to show that he paid hush money to protect his political image.
