  • Legal Troubles for Former President Donald Trump

    •Trump is facing scrutiny in multiple ongoing investigations that could come with criminal charges.

    •The criminal case centers on a $130,000 hush money payment to Stormy Daniels in order to quiet her allegations of an affair with Trump.

    •After Trump was elected president, his personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, was reimbursed with a total of $420,000, to account for taxes and other costs.

    •Some of the reimbursement checks were signed by Trump himself, who has admitted to repaying Cohen for money paid to Daniels.
