criminal "falsifying business records"
courthousenews | Trump pleads not guilty to hush money criminal indictment, 4 Apr 2023

Since the charges are not eligible for bail under New York state law, Trump was released on his own recognizance and left from the courthouse to LaGuardia Airport in Queens to return to his Mar-A-Lago estate in Palm Beach.
Unsealed for the first time this afternoon, the 34-count [felony] indictment ties Trump explicitly to an otherwise known criminal conspiracy: payments that were made weeks before the 2016 presidential election to porn actress Stormy! Daniels and to Playboy playmate Karen! McDougal so that neither woman would make public statements about extramarital affairs they claimed to have had with Trump.

Summarizing those charges and statement of facts that accompanies them, prosecutors said Trump committed an "illegal conspiracy to undermine the integrity of the 2016 presidential election."

have the power to serve subpoenas for the personal aggrandizement of the investigators or to
punish those investigated."

House GOP, Bragg reach agreement for ex-prosecutor to testify in Trump indictment probe congressional hearing, 22 Apr

District Attorney Alvin Bragg (D) initially sought to block the [US House committee] subpoena [summons to testify], but a federal judge denied that effort earlier this week. A day later [20 Apr 2023], a federal appeals court temporarily delayed Pomerantz's deposition hours before it was scheduled to take place amid an appeal from the DA's office.
