Donald Trump vows to stay in the 2024 race if he faces criminal charges
Donald Trump’s eldest daughter, Ivanka Trump, has asked for a stay in adjudication of the $250 million fraud case brought against her, her brothers, her father and their family’s eponymous real estate company.
Her attorneys argue that the fraud complaint filed last year “contains no allegation that Mrs. Trump directly or indirectly prepared, prepared, reviewed or certified any of her father’s financial statements.”
“Other individuals were responsible for those duties,” they added.
In news of Mr Trump’s other legal issues, it emerged that his former aide Hope Hicks had met with Manhattan prosecutors investigating the former president’s alleged hush money payments to adult movie star Stormy Daniels.
Former White House communications director visited the office of Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg with her lawyers on Monday. This comes as prosecutors ramp up the long-running investigation into payments made to Daniels in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.
Meanwhile, Trump praises Fox News host Tucker Carlson for broadcasting footage of the January 6 riot at the Capitol, falsely portraying it as a peaceful process. He has called for prosecution of the House Select Committee that investigated the assault on Congress.
