LIVE: Ex-President Trump Formally Arraigned in Manhattan Criminal Court

by Nomad

Today- 4 April 2023- former president and 2024 presidential candidate Donald Trump is scheduled to make a court appearance in New York City where he will be arraigned on numerous charges linked to payments made to conceal information - an event that marks the first instance in U.S. history where an ex-president will face criminal charges.

As CNN noted:
The indictment returned last week by a grand jury against Trump is also expected to be unsealed Tuesday, providing the public – and Trump’s legal team – with the first details about the specific charges he will face.
The processing will include an appearance before Judge Juan Merchan, whom Trump has already ridiculed in various remarks on his Truth Social platform. Trump will be fingerprinted and the special charges will be revealed. In all, this processing will likely be brief, 20 to 30 minutes long. In addition, Judge Merchan yesterday ruled that TV cameras will not be allowed in the courtroom during the trial.
