Former President Donald Trump is set to be arrested and arraigned next Tuesday in his hush money case, according to court officials. This will mark the first time a former US president has faced an indictment, with the political implications expected to be significant as Trump runs for presidency a third time. The indictment relates to payments made to porn actor Stormy Daniels and former Playboy model Karen McDougal to silence allegations of sexual encounters with the married Trump prior to his political career. Trump has denied any wrongdoing and branded the case politically motivated. He is expected to fly to New York on Monday and be booked and photographed like any other defendant, but will have Secret Service protection and is unlikely to be handcuffed or detained for long.
