CNN Law Enforcement analyst John Miller told Erin Burnett that former President Donald Trump has been charged criminally on 34 counts. On Thursday afternoon, it was announced that Trump had been indicted by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg's grand jury, which was investigating the circumstances surrounding hush money payments to Stormy Daniels. 

As the evening unfolded, details were scarce but filtered out slowly, including Miller's story that the NYPD is organizing for Friday following weeks of Trump threats and provocation.

On Thursday night's OutFront with Erin Burnett, Miller said that the indictment consists of 34 counts:

JOHN MILLER: According to my sources, this is 34 counts of falsification of business records, which is probably a lot of charges involving each document, each thing that was submitted as a distinct count, plus a handful other matters. Therefore he would turn himself in to the district attorney's office. It would presumably occur in the district attorney's office. He'd be hauled upstairs to the detective squad. He'd be fingerprinted and photographed for a mug shot. Because, remember, nothing is the same here. He is a defendant who is being protected by the United States Secret Service. That has never happened in history, as far as I know. But his detail will be with him. They'd probably put him in a conference room and tell him, "All right, you're now booked." Right. And your information is being entered into the system. We will now have an arraignment judge. They'll take him to the arraignment judge, and he'll be released on his own recognizance.

ERIN BURNETT: And just a fundamental point here, I just want to go over it. So this is under seal, and we know what happened. Okay. But Ryan does this only for the benefit of anyone watching who is unfamiliar with the fundamentals of the situation. Is Trump aware of every account he's seen?

RYAN NOBLES: It hasn't seen it yet. And he might see it at the arraignment.

ERIN BURNETT: That's right. So he's not sitting here knowing. So he's hearing you. And now he's learning via your reporting that there are 34 cases of falsification of business records. Do you comprehend that there are more or maybe more various charges, or do you understand the fullness of it?

JOHN MILLER: That, I believe, is the work of the grand jury in this case. They could add more charges later if new evidence leads to a superseding indictment. But let's assume that 34 counts of anything is a pretty complete and thorough look at something. So let's start there.
