Trump indicted; NY grand jury move shakes American politics

Donald Trump has become the first former American president to be indicted, in connection with paying off adult film actress Stephanie Clifford, also known as Stormy Daniels, for her silence about an alleged sexual encounter. The payment was made in the run-up to the 2016 presidential elections. On Thursday, a grand jury in New York indicted Trump on criminal charges.
