Trump’s Attorney Reveals How the Former President Responded When Being Told of Indictment
One of former President Donald Trump’s attorneys said Friday his client was “shocked” when he heard the news Thursday evening he had been indicted by a New York grand jury.
Trump predicted several weeks ago he would be charged by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s office and arrested.
Thursday, Bragg’s office announced it will charge Trump with potentially dozens of crimes related to 2016 “hush money” payments to former adult film star Stormy Daniels.
Trump has denied an affair ever happened, and a federal probe in 2019 resulted in no charges over alleged campaign finance violations.
On “Good Morning America” on Friday, Trump attorney Joe Tacopina reacted to the indictment during an interview with George Stephanopoulos, who worked for the Clinton administration before he took a job at ABC News.
