The Republican candidate for the 2024 presidential primaries and former president of the United States of America will be arrested on Tuesday next week, Donald Trump launched Truth Social in capital letters as usual on his social network.
Protest, take back our nation!” Trump added in a message in a tone reminiscent of messages released prior to the storming of the Capitol on January 6, 2021, which he is accused of instigating.
The indictment of a former US president would be unprecedented in the United States.
Even if that didn’t stop Donald Trump from staying on as a presidential candidate, the explosive nature of such a ruling could have uncertain consequences for the campaign, either embarrassing him against Republican rivals or, conversely, stimulating its base.
Asked by AFP, one of Donald Trump’s lawyers, Susan Necheles, replied that her client decided to testify based on information published in the press several days ago about a possible indictment next week.
Because this is a political persecution, the Manhattan District Attorney’s office is resorting to leaking information to the press rather than talking to President Trump’s lawyers, as they usually should, Ms. Necheles said.
Rumors of a possible criminal charge have been circulating ever since Mr. Trump was asked to testify before a grand jury, a group of citizens with broad investigative powers tasked with confirming the indictment. A possible sign of prosecutors’ desire to file criminal charges against the former president in the so-called Stormy Daniels case.
