Law enforcement agencies are preparing for the possibility of former US President Donald Trump being indicted as early as next week in connection to a grand jury probe regarding an alleged hush money payment made to adult film actress Stormy Daniels.
NBC News has learned that security plans are being discussed on multiple levels, including state, local, and federal agencies such as Homeland Security and the NYPD.
They are specifically looking at securing the courthouse in Manhattan and ensuring the safety of everyone involved, including the former president.
While the logistics of putting a former president on trial are unknown, the discussions at such a high level indicate that agencies are preparing for every possible scenario.
However, it is important to note that the charges and the possibility of indictment are still speculative at this time, and any potential indictment would be filed under seal before being made public by a judge.
