Donald Trump Convicted on All 34 Counts in Hush Money Fraud Trial

Donald Trump has been convicted on all 34 felony counts in the hush money fraud trial, marking a historic moment as he becomes the first former U.S. president to face such a conviction. The verdict was reached after over 11 hours of deliberation by the jury, which found him guilty of falsifying business records, charges that are usually misdemeanors but were elevated to felonies due to their connection to another crime. Trump’s reaction was to vehemently criticize the trial, calling it rigged and blaming everyone but himself. He also issued a statement declaring himself a “political prisoner.” Sentencing has been set for July 11, with legal experts predicting probation rather than prison time, despite Trump now being a convicted felon.
