Return to The nefarious legacy of Trump.

The Convictions

Donald J. Trump was convicted of 34 felony charges by a jury of twelve men and women in the state of New York on May 30, 2024.


The Charges filed on March 30, 2023: 34 felony counts filed by Alvin L. Bragg, New York State, Manhattan District Attorney Trump has been charged with 34 felony counts of falsifying business records related to a series of Trump Organization checks he signed in 2017 to his personal lawyer and fixer, Michael Cohen. The payments were to reimburse Mr. Cohen for a hush money payoff he had made in October 2016 to a porn actress, Stormy Daniels, to cover up a potential sex scandal just before the election. But, according to the indictment, internal documents falsely recorded the checks as payments for legal work Mr. Cohen had purportedly performed in 2017 under a retainer that did not exist.
