Former President Donald Trump’s potential indictment in Manhattan is causing a stir among legal insiders and law enforcement.
The grand jury, which is weighing charges against Trump, did not convene on Wednesday as anticipated.
However, police are preparing for possible demonstrations and are planning to roll out the same measures they used when Trump was in office.
Legal experts suggest that the grand jury delay could be a sign that they are nearing completion of their work and an indictment of the former president could be coming soon.
The Manhattan district attorney is investigating alleged hush money payments to porn stars Stormy Daniels, who claims to have had an affair with Trump.
Trump’s former fixer, Michael Cohen, is the prosecution’s star witness, and another witness may be called to rebut things he has said.
If Trump is indicted, he would need to be booked, and his mug shot and fingerprints would be taken before he is released pending a court date.
Trump has reportedly described the spectacle as a “fun experience” and has even mused about smiling for cameras outside court.
Despite the legal troubles, Trump is still in the middle of another campaign for a run at the White House, with his first official rally scheduled for Saturday in Waco, Texas.
