  • Former President Donald Trump was indicted on criminal charges stemming from a hush money payment to a porn actor during his 2016 campaign.
  • Trump pumped his fist as he exited Trump Tower minutes earlier, then traveled in an eight-car motorcade down a highway along the East River to the downtown courthouse, where’s he expected to surrender to authorities.
  • He was fingerprinted and processed, and his mug shot taken — a remarkable reckoning after years of investigations and an extraordinary moment in U.S. history.
