Three sources with knowledge of the situation claim that a grand jury in Manhattan voted to indict Donald Trump.
This is the first time ever in American history a former or current president has been charged with a crime.
The Manhattan District Attorney's Office has been investigating former President Obama in relation to his alleged involvement in a cover-up and hush money scheme involving adult movie star Stormy Daniels, dating back to the 2016 Presidential election.
The decision will send shockwaves throughout the country and push the US political system into uncharted territory. It is the first time that an ex-president has been charged with a crime, let alone when running for office again.
