Former President Donald Trump pleaded not guilty Tuesday to 34 felony counts of falsifying business records. Trump, who appeared in person before a Manhattan judge to hear the charges against him, said at a rally in Florida later that night that he had done nothing wrong, and spoke to supporters about his run for the White House in 2024 .
PBS NewsHour Digital Correspondent Nicole Ellis spoke with Jeffrey Bellin with William and Mary Law School to break down what the indictment by a Manhattan grand jury means and where it goes from here.
From a legal perspective, Bellin said it is important to remember that “there’s a lot more information than people can see from the outside.”
