(SNews) – President Donald Trump has been indicted by a New York City grand jury on charges of falsifying business records stemming from payments to Stormy Daniels, according to multiple media outlets.
A source told The Independent, ABC, The Wall Street Journal and others that grand jurors voted to indict Trump on Thursday and that indictment is currently under seal.
It will be unveiled at some point in the near future by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg.
Trump said earlier: “Prosecutorial misconduct is their new tool, and they’re willing to use it at levels never seen before in our country.
“We’ve had it, but we’ve never had it like this.”
According to The Wall Street Journal:

“The grand jury returned the indictment of Mr. Trump after a vote on Thursday, the people said, marking the first time a former president has faced criminal charges.
“The indictment, sought by the office of Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, isn’t public.”
According to ABC:
