It’s a Donald Trump incendiary what up TruthSocial plans to be arrested next Tuesday, citing what he calls “illegal leaks from the corrupt Manhattan attorney’s office“. The former president calls on his supporters to protest: “Let’s demonstrate, let’s take back the country“. Here is his message published on the page of the social platform that he himself founded: “Now illegal leaks from a corrupt and highly politicized Manhattan District Attorney’s office that set new records of violent crime, funded by George Soros, indicate that, with no crime being proven, based on an old story , completely made up, the former president of the United States of America will be arrested on Tuesday next week. Protest, take back our nation” wrote Trump, thus calling on his supporters to demonstrate against his imminent arrest.
Imminent indictment for the former president
The Manhattan district attorney’s office has reportedly requested a meeting with law enforcement ahead of the tycoon’s possible indictment next week, according to a court source cited by Fox News. Trump spokesman Steven Cheung commented on the news by harshly attacking the district attorney Alvin Bragg, calling his investigation a “witch hunt” and accusing him of being in the service of President Biden and “radical Democrats”. “President Donald J. Trump is completely innocent, he has done nothing wrong, and even the biggest and most radical left-wing Democrats are making it clear,” Cheung said. “From Russia to the Mueller hoax, to the impeachment hoaxes 1 and 2, and even at the illegal Mar-a-Lago raid, Democrats have been investigating and attacking President Trump since before he was elected – and they have failed every time“.
The Manhattan district attorney’s office had warned the tycoon’s lawyers that the tycoon could face criminal charges for secretly paying off a porn star, which suggests prosecutors are getting closer to an indictment against the former president. Manhattan investigation, spanning nearly five years, focuses on $130,000 payment to porn star Stormy Daniels, who has claimed in the past to be in a relationship with the tycoon. The payment, according to the indictment, was made in the final days of the 2016 presidential campaign by Michael Cohen, Trump’s former fixer.
More judicial grain for the tycoon
This is yet another judicial problem for the tycoon and former US president. In recent weeks, the US Justice Department has announced that the Republican tycoon can be sued for the assault on Capitol Hill by his supporters, dating back to January 6, 2021. “Speaking to the public about matters of public interest is a traditional function of the Presidencylawyers in the Justice Department’s civil division wrote, according to the Washington Post. “But that traditional function is that of public communication. It does not include inciting impending private violence“. It’s still: “Sometimes presidents can use strong rhetoric. And those hearing that rhetoric may overreact or even respond with violencethe Justice Department pointed out, according to the Intercept.
