Former President Trump was indicted on criminal charges in New York on Thursday for his role in organizing hush money payments made to an adult film star during his 2016 campaign, according to a source familiar with the proceedings.

The history-making indictment marks the first time a president has been charged in a criminal matter and comes as several law enforcement entities are investigating Trump’s conduct in numerous probes.

The charges laid out in the indictment remain unclear.

The indictment, which remains under seal, follows an investigation by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg (D) that centered on a $130,000 payment fixer Michael Cohen made to adult film star Stormy Daniels shortly before the election.

Trump’s company labeled Cohen’s reimbursement of the payment as a legal expense and did not disclose them in campaign expense reports.

Cohen pleaded guilty in 2018 and served time for his role in the matter on charges related to campaign finance violations and tax fraud. He claimed that Trump directed him to make the payment and that Trump reimbursed him in monthly installments that included a bonus.

The payment was made as part of a nondisclosure agreement as Daniels was prepared to go public with claims she has a sexual relationship with Trump – an affair he denies.

Trump has repeatedly dismissed the investigation as a witch hunt and previously called on supporters to protest his arrest.

Trump’s attorneys and campaign did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

The charges against Trump follow reports that the grand jury empaneled to hear evidence in the case was not set to meet again to weigh evidence until late April.

Trump has also previously suggested the case extends beyond New York’s statute of limitations, which for most state felonies is five years. 

But the case could be “tolled” which allows for the extension of the timeline to bring criminal charges. New York allows such a move when a defendant has continually been out of the state.

Though the first charges to be filed against Trump, others could soon follow.

Trump on Monday sought to quash an investigation by Georgia authorities over his effort to influence the election there. Fulton Co. District Attorney Fani Willis said earlier this year that charging decisions are imminent.

Attorney General Merrick Garland has also appointed a special counsel to review both Trump’s role in the broader investigation into Jan. 6 and the mishandling of government records at Mar-a-Lago.
