Trump says he expects to be arrested on Tuesday

On Saturday, former US President Donald Trump said on Truth Social that he was due for arrest on Tuesday in a case filed by the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office and called on his supporters to protest.

Trump cited “illegal leaks” from the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office as the source of the information. At the same time, in a message on the social network, he presents himself as “the undisputed leading candidate of the Republican Party” in the next election.

According to CNN, a spokesperson for Trump said on Saturday that the former president “was not notified by the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office of a possible indictment” but “rightfully points out his innocence” in an article from Truth Social.

The Manhattan District Attorney’s Office, New York, has so far declined to comment.

Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s office is investigating an illegal $130,000 payment to porn star Stormy Daniels made by former Trump personal attorney Michael Cohen during Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign Daniels, real name Stephanie Clifford, claims she had an affair with Trump ten years ago and was paid to keep quiet. Trump denies all of this information.

Earlier this year, Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s office began submitting evidence from the investigation of the case to the grand jury.

According to Trump attorney Susan Necheles, the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office invited Trump in March to testify before a grand jury in an investigation into payments to a porn star. Legal experts say the summons to testify before the Grand Jury is a sign that prosecutors are about to file an indictment.

In 2018, Trump’s personal attorney, Michael Cohen, pleaded guilty to federal campaign finance violations involving arranging payments to Stormy Daniels and another woman, among other financial crimes. According to Cohen, the instructions for the silent payments came from Trump personally and were made on his behalf.

Last week, Trump called the investigation a “witch hunt” and told Truth Social, “I did absolutely nothing wrong. I never had an affair with Stormy Daniels.” Trump says the allegations are personal revenge on his former attorney, who served time in prison for financial crimes.

This week, Michael Cohen testified before the Grand Jury on March 13 and 15. Grand jury meetings are not public.

More cases are currently being investigated against former President Trump than against any other US president in American history.

Fulton County District Attorney Fanny Willis is investigating Trump’s pressure to change Joe Biden’s vote and victory in Georgia in the 2020 election. DOJ-appointed attorney Jack Smith is investigating Trump’s treatment Trump of classified documents, as well as Trump’s attempts to reverse his 2020 election defeat.

In 2022, the office of Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg investigated but decided not to press charges against Trump for allegedly misleading creditors and insurers about the true value of his property.
