Trump says he will be arrested next week
Former President Donald Trump said in a social media post that he would be arrested next week.
The lawsuit comes at a time when the New York City Attorney is considering indicting Trump over the silence money paid to adult film actress Stormy Daniels, but there has been no official announcement of any plans to indict.
Trump has been involved in several criminal investigations, but the Daniels case is the longest running since 2016.
On his Truth Social platform on Saturday morning, Trump cited “illegal leaks” that he would be arrested on Tuesday and called for protests.
Trump, who is running for president in 2024, also defended himself, saying he did not commit a crime – though he did not disclose what he expects to be charged with – and accused the Manhattan District Attorney’s office of being “corrupt and highly political” .
The Manhattan District Attorney’s office declined to comment on whether an arrest warrant for Trump would be issued soon.
But the Associated Press reported that law enforcement officials in New York are discussing security measures in anticipation that Trump could face charges in the coming weeks.
If that happens, Trump will be the first former president to be indicted in US history.
