Will Trump be indicted today?

Workers began erecting barricades around the Manhattan courthouse on Monday, preparing for a potential and unprecedented moment: Donald Trump arriving this week to face charges expected in connection with a secret investigation into the money, making him the first president in United States history to face criminal charges after leaving office.

Mr Trump announced over the weekend that he expected to be arrested on Tuesday and called on his supporters to protest what he called the “corrupt and highly political Manhattan District Attorney’s Office”, who investigated the former president for silent payments made during the 2016 presidential campaign to two women claiming to have had affairs with him.

“PROTEST, TAKE BACK OUR NATION!” Mr Trump howled on social media.

A Trump spokesperson, however, said the former president’s team received “no notification” of an impending arrest alongside “unlawful leaks”.

An indictment could drop Monday evening or in the next few days, sources familiar with the process told Politico.

Police and security officials met at New York Police Department headquarters on Monday to plan for Trump’s possible arrest, according to the site.

“We will discuss how we bring Trump in,” a source involved in the planning said, “No decision has been made yet.”

Lawyers for Mr Trump said over the weekend that the president would turn himself in if indicted and that there would be no “conflict at Mar-a-Lago”.

Officials are reportedly still working out the logistics of Mr. Trump’s arrest, whether he will be handcuffed and whether he will be paraded in public or taken away in private. Former presidents are also protected around the clock by a Secret Service detail.

Mr. Trump’s supporters, ranging from young New York Republicans to far-right figure Laura Loomer, said they planned to hold demonstrations to protest the charges at various sites across the country, while on far-right message boards, some discussed preventing law enforcement from reaching Mr. Trump at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida.

Speculation has intensified that Mr Trump will soon be arrested after his lawyer said the former president had been asked to testify before the New York grand jury investigating the silence case.

Mr. Trump’s main rival in the 2024 GOP field, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, spoke out on the potential charges on Monday.

“I don’t know what goes into paying silent money to a porn star to get silence on some kind of alleged affair,” DeSantis said at a news conference at Panama City. “I can’t talk about that.”

The former president also faces legal threats from a Georgia probe examining his efforts to reverse the 2020 election results, a federal special counsel investigating his role in the Jan. 6 insurgency and a lawsuit in New York. alleging that Mr. Trump conducted corrupt business practices.
