Trump says he expects to be arrested Tuesday

NY: Donald Trump said in a social media post that he expects to be arrested Tuesday while a New York prosecutor reviews charges in a case examining money paid to silence women who alleged sexual encounters with the former president.

Trump said in a post on his Truth Social network early Saturday that “illegal leaks” from the Manhattan district attorney’s office indicate that “THE LEADING FAR & AWAY REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE AND FORMER PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA WILL BE ARRESTED TUESDAY NEXT WEEK.”

Messages left with the district attorney’s office Saturday were not immediately returned. Trump’s representatives did not immediately return calls for comment.

Trump did not provide any details on social media about how he learned of the expected arrest. In his posts, he repeated his lies that the 2020 presidential election he lost to Democrat Joe Biden was stolen and urged his supporters to “PROTEST, TAKE BACK OUR NATION!” That language evoked the then-president’s message that preceded the riot at the United States Capitol on January 6, 2021.

Law enforcement officials in New York have been making security preparations in the face of the possibility of Trump being indicted.

There has been no public announcement of any timeline for the grand jury’s secret work on the case, including any possible vote on whether to indict the former president.

Trump’s post echoes one he made last summer when he broke the story on Truth Social that the FBI was searching his home as part of an investigation into possible mishandling of classified documents.

The grand jury in Manhattan has been hearing from witnesses, including former Trump attorney Michael Cohen, who says he orchestrated payments in 2016 to two women to silence them about sexual encounters they said they had with Trump a decade earlier.
