Former U.S. President Donald Trump announced in a post on his Truth Social network on Saturday he expects to be arrested on Tuesday in a case brought by the Manhattan district attorney’s office.He not said what the charges would be. As surce of info, he indicated “illegal leaks” from the Manhattan district attorney’s office. It is known the grand jury in Manhattan has been hearing from witnesses, including former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen, who says he orchestrated payments in 2016 to two women (including porn star Stormy Daniels) to silence them about sexual encounters they said they had with Mr Trump a decade earlier.
There has been no public announcement of any time frame for the grand jury’s secret work in the case. Trump says he did nothing wrong. He called the investigation a “witch hunt.” Making now a such prediction, Trump has called on the nation to protest in support of him. In his postings he repeated the claim that the 2020 presidential election he lost to Democrat Joe Biden was stolen. “Protest, take our nation back,” he said.
