A grand jury in Manhattan has voted to make former President Donald Trump the first US president in history to face indictment in the first of three investigations, in a development first reported by the New York Times was reported.

Trump’s attorney, Alina Habba, made a statement to Law&Crime.

“A past president, a current candidate and my friend President Donald J. Trump is a victim of a corrupt and distorted version of the American justice system and history,” Habba said in a statement. “He will be confirmed.”

Manhattan DAs did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The Times says the case will be announced in the coming days.

Legal experts have long expected some form of criminal charges to be brought against the former president. The New York Times reported that Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg had invited Trump to testify before the grand jury investigating him, an act widely interpreted as the last step before indictment.
