Caitlyn Jenner has expressed her fury after Donald Trump was sensationally convicted of falsifying business records in his historic hush money trial.

Taking to X, the 74 year old reality TV star called the bombshell verdict on Thursday, 30 May, 'outrageous' and 'corrupt'. "An outrageous day for America. The entire process has been outrageous, of course. Shame on the state of New York. Shame on the corrupt DOJ," she stated.

In a shocking turn of events, ex-US president Donald has made history as the first former president to be convicted of felony crimes, with the verdict still unfolding.

He's been found guilty of falsifying business records as part of an illegal scheme to sway the 2016 election through secret payments to an adult film actress, Stormy Daniels, who claimed they had an affair.

After nine and a half hours of deliberation, jurors have convicted him on all 34 counts, setting his sentencing for July 11. Despite the conviction and potential jail time, this won't stop him from his ongoing campaign for the presidency.

With three other felony indictments looming, the New York case may be the only one resolved before the November elections, making this outcome even more pivotal.

The verdict marks an extraordinary legal downfall for Trump, potentially leading to prison time in the very city where he rose to fame.

As Donald Trump plans to appeal the decision, he faces the challenge of campaigning as a convicted felon.

Reacting to his conviction, he lashed out: "This was a disgrace. This was a rigged trial by a conflicted judge. The real verdict is going to be Nov. 5th by the people... I'm a very innocent man."

The trial centred around allegations that Trump doctored business records to conceal hush money payments to Stormy, the porn star who alleges an affair with him in 2006.

The whopping $130,000 payment was made by Donald's former lawyer and personal fixer Michael Cohen to silence Daniels during the final weeks of the 2016 race. Prosecutors claim this was a calculated move to interfere in the election.

When Michael Cohen was reimbursed, the payments were recorded as legal expenses, which prosecutors believe was an illegal attempt to disguise the true purpose of the transaction. However, Donald's lawyers argue they were legitimate payments for legal services.

He has always denied the sexual encounter, and his lawyers argued during the trial that his celebrity status, particularly during the 2016 campaign, made him a target for extortion.
