Trump hits back at Manhattan DA over 'witch-hunt' amid talk of indictment

On Thursday, Former President Donald Trump called out Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, whom he says has pursued a political "witch-hunt" against him.

Bragg has investigated a $130,000 payment Trump made to Stormy Daniels in 2016, via his former personal attorney Michael Cohen. The case rests on the premise that the money transfer may constitute an illegal campaign contribution. Reports emerged in March that Trump received an offer to speak before a grand jury in connection with the case, which many news outlet took to signal that an indictment may be forthcoming.

Trump, for his part, has denied wrongdoing. On Thursday, Trump campaign spokesperson Steven Cheung addressed the case in a statement posted to the former president's social media platform, Truth Social.
