Former President Donald Trump now faces a shocking total of 91 criminal counts against him. 
The nearly 100 felony counts stem from five indictments in four criminal cases handed down this year. 
Trump is the first and only former president to be charged criminally. 

Donald Trump is now facing 91 criminal charges across five indictments — a whopping total for the first ex-president to face criminal prosecution. 

The massive number of charges stems from four criminal indictments filed against Trump this year by both state and federal authorities. 

Hush-money settlement to Stormy Daniels

The first criminal case against trump is a state case connected to a $130,000 hush-money payment to the adult film actress Stormy Daniels.

Trump was indicted in March for his alleged role in the payment and is expected to go to trial in March 2024.

The charges are: 

34 counts of falsifying business records.

Classified documents

In a June indictment, federal prosecutors alleged Trump took classified documents with him from the White House to Mar-a-Lago, then tried to foil the government’s efforts to get them back. He was charged with 37 felonies in that case over the alleged “willful retention of national defense information.”

Later that month, a superseding indictment in the case dropped, adding three additional counts against the former President, bringing the total in the classified documents case to 40. That case goes to trial in May 2024. 

The charges are: 

32 counts of willful retention of national defense information for alleged violations of the Espionage Act.1 count of conspiracy to obstruct justice.1 count of withholding a document or record1 count of corruptly concealing a document or record1 count of concealing a document in a federal investigation1 count of scheme to conceal1 count of false statements and representations1 count of altering, destroying, mutilating, or concealing an object1 count of altering, destroying, mutilating, or concealing a document, record, or other object

January 6 Capitol insurrection 

Trump was hit with four charges in connection with his involvement in the January 6 Capitol riot and his attempt to overturn the 2020 election in August. The indictment also mentioned six co-conspirators who weren’t indicted.

The trial date for the case hasn’t been set. 

The charges are:

One count of conspiracy to defraud the United States.One count of conspiracy to obstruct an official proceeding.One count of obstruction of and attempt to obstruct an official proceeding.One count of conspiracy against rights

Georgia false electors 

On Monday, Trump was indicted in Georgia in connection with his attempts to overturn the 2020 election in the state. 

Trump faces 13 felony charges in the RICO case — a type of criminal case usually used against organized crime — and 18 other Trump allies were also charged.

The charges include: 

One count of violation of the Georgia RICO Act. Three counts of solicitation of violation of oath by public officer. Two counts of conspiracy to commit false statements and writings. Two counts of conspiracy to commit forgery in the first degree. Two counts of false statements and writings.One count of conspiracy to commit impersonating a public officer. One count of conspiracy to commit filing false documents. One count of filing false documents. 

That comes to a grand total of 91 felony counts against the former president, who is running for the GOP nomination to take back the White House in 2024. 

He could face years of both federal and state prison time if he is convicted on one — or many — of these 91 counts., but he’d still be able to run for office and even be president if he were convicted.
