A grand jury in New York has been empaneled and expected to consider evidence in a criminal investigation into the Trump Organization, including former President Donald Trump’s role in hush-money payments paid to women who claimed to have had affairs with him. The grand jury, which meets three days a week for six months, was summoned by the Manhattan district attorney’s office.
The investigation has been ongoing for over two years and has looked into multiple allegations of financial misconduct by the Trump Organization, including tax fraud and insurance fraud. The investigation has focused on the business practices of the Trump Organization rather than Trump himself. However, he could still face charges if the evidence links him to wrongdoing. Trump has denied any wrongdoing and has accused the investigation of being politically motivated.
