Manhattan District Attorney’s office postpones Trump grand jury hearing
A grand jury hearing scheduled for Wednesday in the ongoing Trump investigation has been postponed.
The Manhattan District Attorney’s office is rumored to be waiting for another potential witness and still compiling their case, leading to the delay.
Former president Donald Trump has been urging his supporters to protest the charges being considered against him.
The DA’s office is investigating whether hush money payments made by Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen to Stormy Daniels in the weeks leading up to the 2016 presidential election were improperly filed as legal expenses.
There are concerns that there could be violence or demonstrations if Trump was to be arrested, which has led to a heightened NYPD presence.
The DA’s office is proceeding carefully in this case as Trump would be the first former president in history to face criminal charges.
