This trial stemmed from a Manhattan District Attorney investigation that led to Trump being charged in March 2023 with 34 counts of falsifying business records related to payments made to adult film star Stormy Daniels during his 2016 presidential campaign. Despite Daniels' claims of an affair with Trump in 2006, which he denies, the former president maintains his innocence and asserts that the charges are politically motivated.
