Trump Accuses Judge Of Bias, Says Case Against Him Politically Motivated

Former United States President Donald Trump has accused Juan Merchan, the presiding judge in his prosecution, of being biased.

Trump was arrested on Tuesday and was temporarily in police custody ahead of his arraignment.

In an indictment sheet released by Alvin Bragg, Manhattan district attorney, the former president was charged with 34 counts of falsifying business records in the first degree.

Bragg said the main accusation against Trump is that he “repeatedly and fraudulently falsified New York business records to conceal criminal conduct that hid damaging information from the voting public during the 2016 presidential election”.

He said Trump and others involved in the scheme “violated election laws and made and caused false entries in the business records of various entities in New York” after identifying and suppressing harmful stories about him from going public before the election.

Trump pleaded not guilty to all 34 counts.
