A New York judge is set to rule on Donald Trump’s motion to dismiss the 34-count indictment against him, which alleges falsifying business records to cover up a hush money payment to a porn star before the 2016 election.

Trump argues that the case is partisan and not covered by state law, and a decision could impact his potential trial before the 2024 presidential election.

The case is seen as a test for the first of four criminal cases against Trump, with prosecutors alleging a cover-up related to federal campaign finance violations.

Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg said, “It’s about conspiring to corrupt a presidential election and then lying in New York business records to cover it up – that’s the heart of the case.”

Trump’s legal team claims selective prosecution, arguing that state law does not apply to federal candidates, but prosecutors assert that the law is not limited to state-level crimes.

Anna Cominsky, a New York Law School professor, said, “It’s very broad. It’s not saying the prosecutor has to prove that other crime was committed, but rather just that there was this intent.”
