Former President Donald Trump anticipates being arrested on Tuesday as part of an ongoing investigation by Manhattan’s district attorney.
A grand jury has been examining payments made on Mr.
Trump’s behalf to two women who alleged having sexual encounters with him.
Despite denying any wrongdoing, President Trump has posted on his social media blog calling for protests against his imminent arrest.
The former president’s attorney has called his comments about an arrest “speculation,” and a Trump spokesperson has claimed there has been no notification other than illegal leaks.
The possibility of an indictment has raised concerns about the weaponization of the justice system for politically motivated prosecutions, and law enforcement officials in New York are making security preparations for Mr.
Trump’s possible court appearance in the coming weeks.
