Donald Trump indicted; expected to be arraigned Tuesday

A New York grand jury has voted to indict Donald Trump, according to sources. This marks the first time in U.S. history that a current or former president will face criminal charges. Sources tell CNN that Trump will face more than 30 counts related to business fraud. Trump calls the indictment "political persecution and election interference at the highest level in history." The Manhattan district attorney’s office has been investigating Trump in connection with his alleged role in a hush money payment scheme involving adult film star Stormy Daniels during the 2016 presidential campaign. Our legal team, correspondents and analysts break down the historic indictment and reveal what could happen in the coming days. Plus, Donald Trump’s attorney Timothy Parlatore, who has represented the former president in a different case, tells AC360 that the timing of the indictment was a “surprise.” And Stormy Daniels’ attorney Clark Brewster tells Anderson Cooper why “the indictment of Donald Trump is no cause for joy.”
