Trump is charged with racketeering, false statements, conspiracy to commit forgery, filing false documents and trying to get peace officers to violate their oath.

Listen to what I’m saying about officers say the 36 year old was holding something. >> They thought it was a knife while attempting to de-escalate the male by calling him by calling his name and speaking calmly with him. >> Listen to what I’m saying.
