Former President Donald Trump’s indictment by a New York grand jury has thrusted the nation into uncharted political, legal and historical waters, and raised a slew of questions about how the criminal case will unfold.

The Manhattan District Attorney’s office has been investigating Trump in connection with his alleged role in a hush money payment scheme and cover-up involving adult film actress Stormy Daniels that dates to the 2016 presidential election.

Though the indictment—which has been filed under seal—has yet to be unveiled, Trump and his allies have already torn into the grand jury’s decision, blasting it as a “political persecution and election interference at the highest level in history.”

Dr. Stephen Maynard Caliendo, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences at North Central College, was immediately sought after by broadcast networks across Chicago for his political expertise on the unfolding story.
