Donald Trump posted on his Truth Social network that he anticipates being arrested on Tuesday as a New York prosecutor looks into charges related to hush money paid to women who claimed they had sexual encounters with the former president. The Manhattan district attorney’s office declined to confirm or comment on potential charges, although Trump accused them of illegal leaks. Arresting the 76-year-old Republican and former president of the United States of America would be an unprecedented move following years of investigations into his business, political, and personal dealings. Preparations were being made for Trump’s detainment; however, there has been no public announcement of the jury’s vote on whether to indict the ex-president for the charges. Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s office is examining whether any state laws were broken in connection with the payments or the way Trump’s company compensated Cohen. Former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen had arranged payments to silence the women’s allegations that Trump denies occurred. Trump repeatedly labeled the ongoing case as a witch-hunt aimed at sabotaging his potential 2024 campaign.
