Former President Donald Trump may be facing indictment for his alleged role in payments made to adult film star Stormy Daniels during the 2016 presidential campaign.
The Manhattan grand jury hearing evidence in the hush money case against Trump is expected to reconvene as early as tomorrow to consider an indictment.
Trump denies the affair and all wrongdoing and remains a candidate for the presidency in 2024.
His airplane is currently at Palm Beach International Airport in West Palm Beach, where supporters have been protesting his possible arrest.
If Trump is indicted, he is likely to surrender to authorities but may not have to do so right away.
Former DOJ criminal division trial attorney Richard Serafini says it’s possible the public won’t find out about a possible indictment until Trump actually turns himself in to authorities in New York.
If he does surrender, he is unlikely to spend time in jail or be forced to wear handcuffs but will have to be fingerprinted, have his mugshot taken, and appear before a judge in criminal court.
It’s unclear where Trump’s airplane would be headed if it were to leave, as he also has a campaign appearance in Texas this weekend.
