The charges stem from a scheme to cov­er up a $130,000 pay­ment made to porn star Stormy Daniels to keep her silent about an alleged affair with Trump. 

Pros­e­cu­tors argued that Trump fal­si­fied busi­ness records over the course of 2017 by claim­ing the pay­ments to his for­mer lawyer Michael Cohen were for “legal ser­vices” when they were actu­al­ly reim­burse­ments for the hush money.

With each count car­ry­ing a poten­tial sen­tence of up to 4 years in prison, Trump now faces a sig­nif­i­cant legal and polit­i­cal fallout. 

The ver­dict was met with cel­e­bra­tion from Democ­rats, who viewed it as uphold­ing the rule of law, while Repub­li­cans denounced the deci­sion as a polit­i­cal­ly moti­vat­ed “witch hunt.”

Trump has vowed to appeal the ver­dict, kick­ing off what is like­ly to be a pro­tract­ed legal bat­tle. How­ev­er, this con­vic­tion rep­re­sents a his­toric moment, as a for­mer US pres­i­dent has now been held crim­i­nal­ly account­able for his actions in office. 

The case has far-reach­ing impli­ca­tions for the future of Amer­i­can pol­i­tics and the bal­ance of pow­er between the exec­u­tive branch and the jus­tice system.
