Shortly after President Donald Trump appeared in Manhattan court for his scheduled arraignment, the indictment list against the president was unsealed, revealing a long list of oddly similar charges.

Via court documents, the case, The People of New York v. Donald J. Trump, has brought an outrageous 34 felony counts against the 45th President of the United States.

The grand jury of the County of New York alleged the following on the first count:

“The defendant, in the County of New York and elsewhere, on or about February 14, 2017, with intent to defraud and intent to commit another crime and aid and conceal the commission thereof, made and caused a false entry in the business records of an enterprise, to wit, an invoice from Michael Cohen dated February 14, 2017, marked as a record of the Donald J. Trump Revocable Trust, and kept and maintained by the Trump Organization.”

Per RSBN, Trump strongly pleaded not guilty on Tuesday when he appeared before State Supreme Court Justice Juan Merchan.

The court documents listed 34 counts of “falsifying business records” and was signed by District Attorney Alvin Bragg. According to the New York Post, falsifying business records is usually charged as a misdemeanor in New York. However, the charges right now are First Degree felony counts.

Via Fox News, Trump lawyer Todd Blanche stated after leaving the courtroom, “It’s not a good day – I don’t expect this to happen in this country. The indictment itself is boilerplate. It’s really disappointing. It’s sad and we’ll fight it.”

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., who made an appearance Tuesday morning near Trump Tower at a grassroots rally to support President Trump, reacted to the unsealed indictment list on Twitter:

“First unsealed indictment of fake charges says President Trump made a ‘false business entry’ in Feb 2017. The Biden family took in over $1 million in ‘seed’ money from China. On the Oversight Committee, we are investigating. I’m going to review financials when I get back to DC. Where are the businesses and products created from this Chinese ‘seed’ money? Did the Biden’s pay taxes on that China cash?”

President Donald Trump is scheduled to deliver post-arraignment remarks at Mar-a-Lago Tuesday evening at 8:15 p.m. ET. You can watch live coverage of Trump’s press conference on RSBN here.
