Donald Trump vows to stay in 2024 race if he faces criminal charges
An attorney for Donald Trump has admitted that it is now “more probable” that the former president will be indicted on criminal charges over the hush money payments to adult film star Stormy Daniels.
Joe Tacopina told NewsNation that – while he hopes “justice will prevail” – he believes it is looking more likely that Mr Trump may face charges.
Trump’s former fixer Michael Cohen concluded his testimony in the case on Wednesday as Manhattan prosecutors ramp up the probe into whether the former president falsified business records when making a $130,0000 payment to Daniels days before the 2016 election.
Prosecutors claim the money was used to silence Daniels about an alleged affair she had with Trump.
Daniels’ attorney also confirmed on Wednesday that she had met with prosecutors on Monday and had agreed to make herself available as a witness.
Meanwhile, exiled Chinese billionaire Guo Wengui, an ally of far-right activist and former Trump aide Steve Bannon, was arrested and charged by federal prosecutors in connection with a sprawling fraud case.
During his arrest a fire mysteriously broke out at his Central Park apartment.

Trump hits out at lead prosecutor on Stormy Daniels case
Former President Donald Trump has hit out at one of the lead prosecutors on the New York Stormy Daniels hush money case — Michael Colangelo — whom he claims was “quietly snuck into the local Manhattan DAs office” from the Justice Department.
Mr Colangelo’s appointment was widely reported in early December 2022 and he previously worked on the investigation into Trump’s Seven Springs estate in Westchester County.
The person heading up the New York City investigation into the now ancient, and many times debunked, Stormy “Horseface” Danials [sic] matter, is none other than top DOJ (D.C.) operative Matthew Colangelo, one of Merrick Garland’s senior officials, who was quietly snuck into the local Manhattan D.A.’s Office so that DOJ could say they weren’t involved with this local persecution of a popular (75 Million Votes!) President. Who knows, though, maybe they’re there to make it legit?
Not done yet, Mr Trump then went for his former fixer Michael Cohen whom he called a “sleazebag” and a “total loser!”
Does anybody believe that SleazeBag disbarred lawyer…
