Former U.S. president Donald Trump is scheduled to be interviewed by New York probation officials on Monday. This interview is a mandatory step before his sentencing in July for the criminal hush money case.

The interview will be conducted via a computer video conference from Trump's residence at the Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach, Florida. One of Trump's lawyers, Todd Blanche, will be present during the interview. Typically, individuals convicted of crimes in New York meet with probation officials without their lawyers present. However, Judge Juan Merchan, presiding over Trump's case, has granted permission for Blanche's presence.

The purpose of a presentencing probation interview is to gather information about the defendant, which will be used to create a report for the judge. This report helps determine the appropriate punishment for the crime.

The report is usually prepared by a probation officer, social worker, or psychologist working for the probation department. They interview the defendant, their family and friends, and individuals affected by the crime. The report includes the defendant's personal history, criminal record, and sentencing recommendations. It also includes information about their employment and any obligations to care for family members. This interview provides an opportunity for the defendant to explain why they believe they deserve a lighter sentence.

A jury found Trump guilty of falsifying business records at his company. This was part of a larger scheme to silence individuals who might have revealed embarrassing stories about him during the 2016 presidential campaign. One payment of $130,000 was made to adult film actress Stormy Daniels, who claimed to have had a sexual encounter with Trump, which he denies.

Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, maintains his innocence and claims the criminal case is politically motivated to hinder his chances of regaining the White House.

Trump's campaign spokesman, Steven Cheung, issued a statement on Sunday accusing President Joe Biden's Democratic Party allies of "rampant witch-hunts" and abusing their power to interfere in the presidential election. He stated that Trump and his legal team are actively challenging the Manhattan District Attorney's case.

Judge Merchan has scheduled Trump's sentencing for July 11. He has the authority to impose a range of punishments, from probation and community service to a maximum of four years in prison.
