Donald Trump Pleads Not Guilty to 34 Felony Counts


April 5, 2023

Former U.S. President, Donald Trump, and front-runner for the Republican nomination in 2024 has pleaded not guilty to 34 felony counts of falsifying business records in the first degree.

Trump pleaded not guilty when he appeared at Manhattan Criminal Courthouse on Tuesday in New York where he spent approximately two hours being processed and arraigned.

Indicted last week, Trump is the first sitting or former president to face criminal charges, over a case involving a 2016 hush-money payment to porn star Stormy Daniels.

Meanwhile, the White House Press Secretary, Karine Jean-Pierre, on Tuesday refused to comment on the indictment and arraignment of Trump, insisting that President Joe Biden’s focus is on the American people today, not on his predecessor, and that they will not remark on legal proceedings.
