Manhattan grand jury votes to indict Donald Trump

A grand jury in Manhattan has voted to indict former President Donald Trump with a crime over hush money paid to a porn star.

It is the first time in American history that a current or former president will face criminal charges.

The Manhattan district attorney's office has been investigating the former president in connection with his alleged role in a hush money payment scheme and cover-up involving adult film star Stormy Daniels that dates to the 2016 presidential election.

The decision will no doubt send shockwaves across the country, pushing the US political system – which has never seen one of its ex-leaders confronted with criminal charges, let alone while again running for president – into uncharted waters.
