In a history-making moment in the United States, former President Donald Trump was convicted of all 34 felony counts in his hush money trial in Manhattan. The jurors returned the guilty verdict on Thursday after a weeks-long courtroom battle in which Trump was accused of falsifying business records to cover up hush-money payments made around the 2016 election.

At the crux of the case led by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg is a $130,000 payment made to adult actress Stormy Daniels at the alleged behest of Trump in order to buy her silence on an alleged affair she had with him. In what prosecutors said was an attempt to influence the 2016 election, the GOP presumptive nominee falsified business records to hide reimbursements made to former lawyer Michael Cohen to repay the hush money paid to Daniels.

Since the guilty verdict came in, there have been various speculations regarding whether the Republican presidential candidate will be incarcerated, with the question of what would happen to his 2024 election campaign.

While the Secret Service has reportedly coordinated with local jail officials, legal experts do not think the president will end up in prison, as he could get probation or community service as alternatives to imprisonment.

The fate of Trump hangs in the balance until July 11, when sentencing will be held. With its July date, the sentencing would be held just four days before the Republican National Convention, where Trump is set to officially clinch the party’s presidential nomination.

Ahead of the wait, Trump’s political rival and critics have been rejoicing over his conviction, with the Biden-Harris campaign releasing a statement to say that “no one is above the law.”

“Donald Trump has always mistakenly believed he would never face consequences for breaking the law for his own personal gain. But today’s verdict does not change the fact that the American people face a simple reality. There is still only one way to keep Donald Trump out of the Oval Office: at the ballot box. Convicted felon or not, Trump will be the Republican nominee for president,” the statement, which came from the Campaign Communications Director Michael Tyler, added.

The campaign went on to reiterate the Democrats’ favorite talking-point that accuses Trump of being a threat to America’s democracy.

“He is running an increasingly unhinged campaign of revenge and retribution, pledging to be a dictator ‘on day one’ and calling for our Constitution to be ‘terminated’ so he can regain and keep power. A second Trump term means chaos, ripping away Americans’ freedom and fomenting political violence — and the American people will reject it this November,” the statement read further.

While Trump’s conviction is a source of joy for his critics and rivals, he has called the verdict a disgrace and reiterated that he is an “innocent man.”

Trump and his allies have repeatedly condemned the case, labeling it a political prosecution and an attempt by President Joe Biden and his Democrats to cut down the Republican frontrunner’s chances of winning the 2024 presidential election as Biden continues to trail behind him in recent polls.

Trump, who is now the first former U.S. president to be convicted of felony crimes, is expected to appeal the case.
