On Tuesday, April 4th, 2023, former United States president Donald Trump surrendered to law enforcement. They have taken him into custody. If you are unaware of this information, here are some things to know about this situation. In court, Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg charged him with 34 felony counts.

Information was released saying Trump fabricated New York business records to hide information and lawful activity before the 2016 election. Trump pleaded now no longer responsible for all the counts. However, it has been reported by several public figures that he has given over $300,000 in hush money. Even though hush money is not considered a crime, falsifying records is a misdemeanor in New York. Therefore, Bragg charged him with that and said the hush money may have been to cover up more crimes.
