Former President Donald Trump is reportedly facing 34 felony counts of falsifying business records and will be arrested on Tuesday, according to Yahoo News Chief Investigative
Correspondent Michael Isikoff.
The charges are Class E felonies, which carry a maximum of four years in prison per charge. Trump will receive special treatment from prosecutors, avoiding standard procedures such as being handcuffed, having his photo taken, or being placed in a jail cell.
New York law enforcement officials have stated that as a first offender, “no one gets jail time for that,” according to the report. Shortly after the news broke, Trump took to social media, accusing District Attorney Bragg of illegally leaking the information in the indictment. Trump called for Bragg to indict himself and resign as district attorney.
Trump is still facing legal trouble from three other criminal investigations, including another federal investigation related to his efforts to stay in power after the 2020 election, a Georgia-based investigation related to alleged meddling in the 2020 election, and a federal investigation into his handling of U.S. government records after leaving office.
