USA: Trump became the first former President to be convicted of Felony Crimes

Jurors found former President Trump guilty on all 34 counts of falsifying business records, making him the first former president to be convicted of a felony.

The jurors reached a verdict in the late afternoon, after less than 12 hours of deliberation in the hush money criminal case.

The 12 New Yorkers on Trump’s jury reached a unanimous decision on his fate, eliminating the possibility of a hung jury.

Trump faced 34 counts of falsifying business records in connection with a hush money payment his ex-fixer, Michael Cohen, made to porn actor Stormy Daniels ahead of the 2016 election to keep secret her alleged affair with Trump a decade prior until after votes were cast. Trump denies the affair and pleaded not guilty.

Trump on Thursday insisted he is a “very innocent man” after the verdict in his hush money trial, vowing he will “keep fighting.”

“This was a rigged, disgraceful trial. The real verdict is going to be Nov. 5 by the people, and they know what happened here, and everybody knows what happened here,” Trump said outside the courtroom shortly after the verdict was read.

Trump’s fundraising page crashed shortly after he was convicted.
