.S. former President, Donald Trump, and front-runner for the Republican nomination in 2024, has been released after an arrest by the Police hours before his arraignment.
TheNewsGuru.com (TNG) reports how Trump was arrested on Tuesday, and how he pleaded not guilty to 34 felony counts of falsifying business records when he was arraigned in court.
Trump appeared at Manhattan Criminal Courthouse in New York for approximately two hours total being processed and arraigned.
Indicted last week, Trump is the first sitting or former president to face criminal charges, over a case involving a 2016 hush-money payment to porn star Stormy Daniels.
Meanwhile, the White House Press Secretary on Tuesday refused to comment on the indictment and arraignment of Trump.
Karine Jean-Pierre declined to answer any question on Trump’s arraignment during the media conference.
According to Jean-Pierre, Joe Biden’s focus is on the American people today, not on his predecessor, and that they will not remark on legal proceedings.
“This is playing on many of the networks … so, obviously, he will catch parts of the news … but this is not his focus for the day,” she said.
