Trump says he will ‘fight till the end,’ and says ‘this is long from over’.

Former President Trump was found guilty on all counts in his historic and unprecedented criminal trial, making him the first former president of the United States to be convicted of a crime.

Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg charged former President Donald Trump with 34 counts of falsifying business records in the first degree.

Trump pleaded not guilty to all counts.

Jurors found the former president guilty on all counts.

Each count carries a maximum prison sentence of 4 years. In total, Trump faces a maximum sentence of 136 years.

Sentencing for the former president will be July 11 at 10:00 a.m–just four days before the start of the Republican National Convention, where he is expected to be formally nominated as the 2024 Republican presidential nominee. The convention is July 15- 18 in Milwaukee.

The conviction does not bar Trump from running for president.

Prosecutors needed to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Trump falsified those records to conceal a $130,000 payment to Stormy Daniels, a pornographic performer, in the lead-up to the 2016 election to silence her about an alleged affair with Trump in 2006.

Moments after the verdict was delivered by the jury, the former president spoke to reporters in the hallway outside the courtroom.

“This was a disgrace. This was a rigged trial by a conflicted judge who was corrupt as a rigged trial and disgrace. It wouldn’t give us a venue change,” Trump said. “We were at five percent or 6% in this district, in this area. This was a rigged, disgraceful trial.”

Trump said “the real verdict is going to be November 5th by the people.”
