The unprecedented second indictment of former President Donald Trump could have serious implications for the ongoing 2024 presidential race, CBS News Political Director Fin Gómez said on Thursday.

Two U.S. officials confirmed the charges stemming from the federal investigation of Trump's handling of sensitive government documents after leaving the White House to CBS News, as did Trump's attorney.

The decision in March of a New York grand jury to indict Trump due to the circumstances surrounding a "hush money" payment to adult film star Stormy Daniels in 2016 didn't hurt Trump's favorability ratings in the polls, Gómez told CBS News chief White House correspondent Nancy Cordes on Thursday.

"If you look at the Manhattan DA case, [Trump's] poll numbers boosted him right after that happened," Gómez said, adding that this fact was not lost on sources from rival Republican campaigns.

Thursday's fresh indictment, however, could have more serious implications for Trump, Gómez said.
