This article will explore why Fox’s account posted that the former president is dead and the recent updates on his hush-money case.
Donald Trump – Arrested?
Recent events in the ongoing investigation into former President Donald Trump’s alleged involvement in hush money payments have caused quite a stir. Trump’s legal team requested the appearance of Robert J. Costello, a former legal advisor to Michael Cohen, before the Manhattan grand jury on Monday. Costello testified on Trump’s behalf, attempting to discredit a prosecution witness by stating that he was untrustworthy and unreliable.
The investigation centres around the alleged cover-up of payments made to adult film actress Stormy Daniels during Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg presented evidence to the grand jury regarding a $130,000 payment made to Daniels in exchange for her silence about a sexual encounter with Trump in 2006.
It’s important to note that the next steps in the grand jury proceedings are not entirely clear. After the investigation concludes, the grand jury will vote on criminal charges. However, the decision to pursue charges ultimately rests with the Manhattan District Attorney. If charges are brought against Trump, this would be an unprecedented move against a former US president. The situation is ongoing, and developments will likely unfold in the coming weeks and months.
What’s the reason behind the recent buzz?
Images of former US President Donald Trump being arrested have gone viral on social media platforms. These pictures are fake AI-generated images that depict Trump getting arrested and dragged by the police. The viral images were shared on Twitter by Eliot Higgins, a British journalist, and have sparked a buzz among netizens. The reason behind the buzz is the criminal indictment that Trump is facing for making a hush payment to a porn star in 2016.
If charged, he could be the first former US president to be indicted. While the images are unreal, they reflect the public’s interest in the ongoing legal proceedings against Trump. The viral pictures show Trump in jail wearing the standard orange-coloured overalls and doing chores inside the prison. The post’s caption reads, “Making pictures of Trump getting arrested while waiting for Trump’s arrest.” Although the images are not authentic, they have fueled speculations about the possibility of Trump’s arrest and highlighted the public’s curiosity about the outcome of the ongoing legal investigation.
So this might be the reason behind the post by Fox featuring that Trump is dead. Maybe they could have also joined the netizens to play around with the pictures. But there were no official posts or reports from Fox about this incident. So there is a high chance this could have been a maked-out claim on Fox.
Trump’s Response to the Hush Money Case
Donald Trump has denied any wrongdoing in the hush money case and has slammed the Justice Department’s investigation, branding it a “witch-hunt” and alleging that it is motivated by politics. One of Trump’s key defences, which has changed over time, is that he declassified the information.
Notwithstanding Trump’s assertions, there is no supporting data for this allegation. A few of the documents, according to the former president’s assertion, maybe “privileged,” which would bar their use in upcoming proceedings. But, a separate attorney is currently examining the content of the seizure to ascertain whether this is the case.
The fact that Trump hasn’t yet explicitly addressed the issue of why the documents were at Mar-a-Lago in the first place makes his response to the hush money case stand out. The manner in which the documents came into Trump’s possession and the possibility of anomalies in their treatment has been questioned as a result. It would be interesting to observe how Trump’s case changes as the inquiry progresses and whether he offers a more thorough justification for the Mar-a-Lago records.
Donald Trump’ past allegations
Donald Trump has been accused of rape, sexual assault, and sexual harassment by at least 25 women since the 1970s. Three instances of litigation have resulted from the accusations, including a rape claim by Ivana Trump that she later recanted, a sexual harassment lawsuit by businesswoman Jill Harth that was settled, and a defamation lawsuit by former The Apprentice contestant Summer Zervos.
Many of the accusations arose after a 2005 audio recording was leaked during the 2016 presidential campaign, in which Trump was recorded bragging about being able to do anything to women.
Several former Miss USA and Miss Teen USA contestants accused Trump of entering their dressing rooms while they were in various stages of undressing. In June 2019, writer E. Jean Carroll alleged that Trump raped her in a department store dressing room in 1995 or 1996, which Trump denied.
The book All the President’s Women: Donald Trump and the Making of a Predator contains 43 additional allegations of sexual misconduct against Trump. Trump has denied all the allegations and claimed he is the victim of media bias and a political smear campaign. He has yet to follow through with any legal action against his accusers or the media.
