Trump's next in-person hearing will be in December in Hush Money case: report

Donald Trump has pleaded not guilty to the 34 criminal charges against him.

New York:

The Manhattan court in New York has called former US President Donald Trump for the next in-person hearing on December 4, CNN reported.

Trump, who pleaded not guilty to the 34 criminal charges against him, left the courtroom without making a statement.

After leaving the courtroom, Trump left the building and got into his motorcade parked outside. The indictment against Donald Trump alleges the former president was involved in a conspiracy to undermine the integrity of the 2016 election.

The indictment against Donald Trump alleges that the editor and CEO of the National Enquirer approached Michael Cohen shortly after access to the Hollywood tape went public in October 2016. And later told Cohen that adult film star Stormy Daniels claimed she had an affair with Donald Trump.

Cohen, according to the indictment, negotiated a silent payment with Daniels to “secure [Daniels’] silence and prevent the disclosure of harmful information in the final weeks before the presidential election.

According to CNN citing prosecutors, Trump was part of the plan to suppress negative information, including an unlawful payment of $130,000 ordered by the defendant to suppress information that would harm his campaign.

Earlier, he surrendered to authorities in a Lower Manhattan court ahead of his arraignment.

Arriving at court in Lower Manhattan, Trump posted a cryptic message saying the experience is “SURREAL,” adding, “WOW they are going to ARREST ME. I can’t believe this is happening in America.

According to CNN, Trump is expected to be fingerprinted as part of the arrest, although it remains unclear whether his photo will be taken. He will then be brought into a courtroom, where he will be arraigned – an appearance that should be quick and routine, but represents a surreal and historic moment in US history.

Donald Trump arrived at New York’s La Guardia Airport on Monday ahead of his scheduled arraignment at a Manhattan courthouse, CNN reported. Alina Habba, who represents Trump in several civil cases, after meeting him in New York, said, “He’s in good spirits. Honestly, he is as he normally would be. He’s ready to come in and do what he has to do.

Trump, who is running for the Republican nomination for next year’s presidential race, has denied any wrongdoing and called the investigation and indictment a partisan attack. Bragg is a Democrat.

A team of Secret Service agents accompanied by New York Police Department officials toured the courthouse and its entrances on Friday, apparently mapping the former president’s transit through it.

The FBI is warning local and state police departments nationwide of concerns over Trump’s possible indictment, and even New York City officials plan to close key streets in lower Manhattan as a safety precaution, ABC reported. News.
