Donald Trump found guilty after criminal trial in New York


Former US President Donald Trump was found guilty Thursday after a criminal trial in New York for payments intended to buy the silence of an actress, days before the 2016 presidential election.

The 12 jurors unanimously estimated that the likely Republican candidate for the November 5 presidential election tried to hide a payment of $130,000 to the actress shortly before the election pitting him against Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton. His sentence will be determined later by Judge Juan Merchan.

The real estate mogul became the first former US chief executive to face criminal trial.

The former tenant of the White House managed to postpone three other criminal trials, two for illicit attempts to reverse the results of the 2020 election, and one for alleged casual handling of classified documents.
