After years of investigations and weeks of suspense over possible legal charges, former president Donald Trump was formally indicted by a New York grand jury. The indictment by a grand jury, convened by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, is the latest development in a lingering affair scandal for Trump and one of several legal cases that the ex-president faces. The New York indictment sets up an unprecedented circumstance in which a former president will be taken into legal custody and could perhaps face jail time.
