Legal expert Jonathan Turley explained over the weekend why the potential forthcoming indictment of former President Donald Trump is a legal house of cards.

Manhattan's district attorney may potentially arrest Trump on Tuesday over a hush money payment of $130,000 allegedly paid to Stormy Daniels in 2016.

As legal basis for prosecution, it is suspected Bragg will nail Trump for allegedly falsifying business records based on allegations that he incorrectly classified legal expenses to his former attorney, Michael Cohen, that were used to reimburse him for paying off Daniels. On the other hand, it is suspected that Bragg will allege that Trump's hush money payment essentially constituted an improper campaign donation. In sum, Trump could be hit with a felony charge.
