This is reported by the portal Yahoo News, citing a source.

It is noted that the charge of falsifying business documents can be prosecuted in the state of New York as a misdemeanor.

"However, Bragg's office raised all charges to Class E crimes, which represent the lowest level of crime in the New York State Penal Code," the portal reports.

According to the interlocutor of the portal, such a measure was taken due to the fact that Trump's actions were allegedly aimed at hiding another crime.

The team of US Special Prosecutor Jack Smith previously completed the collection of evidence in the case of Trump's handling of secret documents.

The lawyer of the former American leader Joe Takopina announced the statement of the client about his innocence in court.

At the same time, Trump himself said that in the court of New York he will be charged with 33 counts.
