Former President Trump's legal team says there's "nothing" to the charges against him. Speaking outside the Manhattan courtroom, his attorneys said Trump is "frustrated, upset, disappointed and mad." They insist Trump was never admonished about his social media posts involving him holding a bat next to a picture of District Attorney Alvin Bragg. They added there never would be charges brought unless the person was named Trump.

With the indictment, Trump becomes the first former U.S. president in history to be charged with a criminal offense.
