NYC: Disgraced former president invited to testify before grand jury

Source: USA Today

“The legal jeopardy facing Donald Trump appeared to escalate Thursday with the disclosure that New York prosecutors offered the former president a chance to testify before a Manhattan grand jury in the ongoing criminal investigation centering on a hush money payment to a former porn star. Trump attorney Joseph Tacopina confirmed the prosecutor’s offer as a decision loomed whether to bring criminal charges against the former president. … Authorities had been investigating the 2016 payment of $130,000 to Stormy Daniels, which former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen has described as falsely disguised as a legal expense to aid the former president’s campaign.” (03/09/23)
