Donald Trump became the first former American president to be convicted of felony crimes Thursday as a New York jury found him guilty of all 34 charges in a scheme to illegally influence the 2016 election through a hush money payment.

Trump sat stone-faced while the verdict was read as cheering from the street below could be heard in the hallway on the courthouse’s 15th floor where the decision was revealed after more than nine hours of deliberations.

“This was a rigged, disgraceful trial,” an angry Trump told reporters after leaving the courtroom. “The real verdict is going to be Nov. 5 by the people. They know what happened, and everyone knows what happened here.”

Judge Juan Merchan set sentencing for July 11, just days before the Republican National Convention in Milwaukee, where GOP leaders, who remained resolute in their support in the immediate aftermath of the verdict, are expected to formally make him their nominee.

Trump is expected to quickly appeal the verdict and will face an awkward dynamic as he returns to the campaign trail with felony convictions. There are no campaign rallies on the calendar for now, though he’s expected to hold fundraisers next week.

The falsifying business records charges carry up to four years behind bars, though Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Braff would not say Thursday if prosecutors intend to seek imprisonment, and it is not clear whether the judge — who earlier in the trial warned of jail time for gag order violations — would impose that punishment even if asked.

  1. It is an absolute tragic day for the United States 🇺🇸 of America & indeed the entire world, and we are even more resolved to be voting 🗳 for President Donald Trump שליט”א, our soon to be 47th President of the United States of America 🇺🇸.
    Meanwhile bragg ימח שמו וזכרונו needs to be prosecuted with very serious federal offense of having interfered with a federal election.
    All this is going to be overturned on appeal in any normal court.

  2. So now the legal system , has joined the FBI,DOJ in politically weaponizing the entire legal system.Now the leftists just have to more efficiently rig the elections , and bye,bye America.

  3. jurisprudence-wise, very rare that in any case that all counts are guilty when there’s more than even 4 counts, kal v’chomer 34

    GUILTY x34 is b’gematria = TDS New yorkers “love” Trump in jail.

  4. Trump shouldn’t complain. In Russia, he would be facing spending the rest of his life in a Siberian gulag, with little chance of coming back alive. While this is what the Democrats want as well (heh-if throwing the opposition works for Putin, why not for Biden), they won’t get it.

    The backlash may destroy Biden. Usually the person who is doing the extortion is prosecuted, not person who pays “hush money”. Bad move to prosecute someone for a crime that has never been prosecuted before, and to arrange to have the trial in a county known for not being able to stand the guy (they did that a lot under Jim Crow, and that’s why the southern Democrats who ran Jim Crow are now held in disrepute).

    Smartest move for the Democrats would be to ask the New York Governor to pardon Trump. However the Democrats haven’t been too clever lately (note the anti-Jewish demonstrations they have been organizing).

  5. This is one of the seven mitzvos Bnei Noach to have a fair justice system

    This was anything but fair!!! Everyone knows it. The question is what will the people do about it.

    A corrupt justice system is bad for everyone!!!! Any Trump hater who is happy by this phony trial and conviction is downright stupid

  6. The Party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes and ears. It was their final, most essential command.

  7. Democrat prosecutor Democrat judge who subjectively decided what testimony and evidence to be allowed and Democrat ny jury. This is a sham trial and politically motivated on a level usually seem in third world country when the opposition is seen as a threat.

  8. The oval office will be in a detention center.

    Who’s better off? The president of the USA in prison or the prime minister of Israel with an arrest warrant?

  9. It’s really scary because the only reason Trump was convicted was because of political reasons. There was no proof that he personally was involved in giving the hush money, which is not a crime in any case, nor was there proof Trump was involved in falsifying records. The main witness of the prosecution, Michael Cohen, is a proven liar and a thief. We do not have a functioning justice system, it is a political arm of those currently in power and that is very, very scary.

  10. How many times does Trump have to be convicted until Republicans realize that he is a criminal that doesn’t care about the laws of the US and the constitution?
    Even January 6th didn’t convince them , so probably never .

  11. As long as Trump can drag this to the Supreme Court, he should be able to wiggle out of this when he’s president. The problem is, they keep rushing things so he shouldn’t have a chance to become president.. cause he’ll be in jail, for 4 years.. exactly their plan.

    The same amount of time it takes you and all the other leftists, libs and laszlos to realize that he’s only being persecuted because he’s a Republican.

    You’re all just terrified and shaking that B”H he’s going to win in November start undoing all the damage your senile perverted master has done.

    Even worse- he’s going to create an economy that’s such a smashing success that some of the takers will become makers and even feel good about themselves!

    Imagine the horror- people taking responsibility for themselves.

  13. I couldn’t care less if he’s a criminal. If he’s good to yidden and supports Israel, it’s good enough for me – I’m not zionist but believe that the people in Israel (all people), need protection and the enemies need to hold back…

  14. This is amazing news. We are now assured of another trump presidency. Thank you Alvin Bragg! We love you! Trump Graham 2024!

    Don’t say what the Democrats want, you don’t speak for us.
    I have said gif years that Trump should not be incarcerated and that Ford’s pardon of Nixon was the right thing for the country, so that we could move forward.
    Man of my Democrat friends agree with this. Most Dems are not part of the radical left

  16. Comments have been made about Dem Judge and Dem DA
    I have been an attorney for decades and involved in party politics gif more than half a century. It is refreshing to live in a state where judges are not elected and DAs don’t exist. Instead we have State’s attorneys to prosecute and they are civil servants,
    Keeping politics out of the judicial system works well.
