The breakdown

1. Donald Trump was indicted by a New York District Attorney's office.

  • The indictment is currently sealed, so it's unknown what charges the former president might face. He's been accused of paying campaign hush money to adult film actress Stormy Daniels.
  • He will likely be charged with falsifying business records. Trump's former attorney, Michael Cohen, paid Daniels two weeks before the 2016 election, which Trump reimbursed after he was elected.
  • Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, a potential opponent for Trump in 2024, said he wouldn't assist in any extradition, but Trump has agreed to surrender himself.
