ANKARA (AA) – Facing a flood of indictments filed since this March, former US President Donald Trump now has to contend with over 90 charges in four separate cases, including 44 federal charges and 47 state ones.

Under the 16-page indictment in the “hush money” payment case, 34 charges were brought against Trump for violating New York state laws in allegedly making a payment to an adult film actress to keep quiet over an affair, but disguising the nature of the payment.

Some charges include violation of election campaign laws and falsification of business records in connection with this payment.

The first hearing in the case was held on April 4, but the next one is not due until next year, in March 2024.

The 49-page indictment in the case of mishandled classified documents concerns official documents Trump illicitly took with him when he left office and his alleged obstruction of government efforts to retrieve them.

The indictment includes 40 charges.

The federal case into the Jan. 6, 2021 raid on the US Capitol raid resulted in a 45-page indictment with four charges against Trump, including three counts of conspiracy and one of the corrupt obstruction of an official proceeding – namely, the US Congress’ official vote count making the election of President Joe Biden official.

The state case in Georgia into trying to overturn the 2020 election results produced a 98-page indictment and 13 pages of charges, including inciting a public official to violate his oath and violating the state's anti-corruption and anti-racketeering law.

On Thursday, Trump turned himself into authorities in Fulton County, Georgia to be booked on charges over alleged efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election.

He was released on a $200,000 bond nearly 20 minutes after being booked at the Fulton County Jail, where he was fingerprinted and had his mugshot taken, becoming the first US president in history, past or present, to do so.

Trump faces 13 criminal counts, including violations of the Georgia state RICO Act, solicitation of violation of oath by a public officer, conspiracy to commit impersonating a public officer, and conspiracy to commit false statements.
