The Manhattan District Attorney’s office has begun presenting evidence to a grand jury in the case involving President Donald Trump, adult film star Stormy Daniels and hush money payments.
The case, which is being investigated by the DA’s office, has been ongoing since 2018 and is looking into the $130,000 payment made to Daniels in 2016 by Trump’s former attorney Michael Cohen.
The grand jury, which is made up of 23 individuals, will evaluate the evidence and determine whether or not Trump should be charged with any criminal offenses.
The DA’s office has been gathering evidence from multiple sources, including former publisher of the National Enquirer, David Pecker, who is expected to meet with prosecutors this week.
The investigation has also received evidence from Fox News, The New York Times, CNN, and The Washington Post.
It is unclear what charges, if any, the grand jury will recommend against Trump.
