This was a historic vote that was decided to indict the former president over allegations of hush money payments made to adult film Stormy Daniels in exchange for her silence over sexual encounters the two had.
However this indictment is the first time a former president of United States will face criminal charges.
The office of Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg who has been pursuing the investigation confirmed that it had contacted Mr Trump’s attorney to coordinate his surrender on unspecified charges.
As per AFP, Donald Trump has slammed the charges as political persecution and election interference and has vowed it would backfire on his successor Joe Biden.
However the indictment comes after days of suspense previously reports claimed that it could take weeks.
Top congressional Republicans are rallying behind Mr Trump. Congressman Adam Schiff said the indictment and arrest of former president is unique throughout all of American history.
Ever since 18 March New York has been on the edge as Trump on that day had declared that he was expected to be arrested within days.
There are other cases Mr Trump is being investigated on and these include probes into his role in the US Capitol riot, his effort to over turn his loss in the state of Georgia in the 2020 election and his handling of classified documents after living office.
However this historic indictment as per reports is expected to upend the upcoming presidential race through which ex president Trump once again hopes to ascend to US highest office.
