With a possible criminal indictment of former president Donald Trump looming, evangelist Franklin Graham took to Twitter on Monday (March 20) to urge Christians to pray for the country generally, as well as for Trump specifically.
The potential indictment, which would come down from Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, centers on an investigation into money allegedly paid to pornographic film actress Stormy Daniels in 2016 just prior to Trump’s presidential election win. Daniels claims that the $130,000 of so-called hush money was given to her in exchange for her silence regarding an affair she and Trump had, an affair Trump denies ever occurred.
Trump was invited to testify before a grand jury earlier in March, but he declined. He could face charges of falsifying business records, as well as violating campaign finance laws.
If indicted, Trump would become the first former president in United States history to face criminal charges.
