Are the Donald Trump Mug Shots real?
Images of former President Donald Trump are circulating on Twitter that appear to be his mug shots. However, the images are fake, and the Donald Trump arrest has not happened yet.
Trump Not Arrested Yet
In 2018, Trumps lawyer Michael Cohen was discovered to have paid adult actress Stormy Daniels $130,000 as hush money days before the 2016 election. The payment was allegedly part of an NDA that would prevent Stormy from discussing her relationship with Trump.
Due to the fact that the payment was allegedly made through a shell company, it may violate campaign finance laws as the expense was not disclosed as part of the campaign spend.
Cohen later pleaded guilty to several charges, including violating campaign finance laws by arranging payments to Daniels and former Playboy model Karen McDougal to influence the election, at the direction of then-candidate Trump. Cohen stated in court that he had made the payments “in coordination with and at the direction of a candidate for federal office,” referring to Trump.
While Trump has denied having an affair with Daniels and any knowledge of the payments made to her, the circumstances surrounding the NDA and the payments have raised ethical and legal questions. The Department of Justice has reportedly investigated the matter, but as an AI language model, I cannot provide updates on any ongoing investigations or legal proceedings.
