Trump predicts arrest over Stormy Daniels payout — RT World News

The former US president called on his supporters to ‘protest, take back our nation’ if he is arrested on Tuesday

Former US President Donald Trump has warned he will be “arrested Tuesday” in an all-caps post on his Truth Social platform on Saturday, crediting “illegal leaks from a corrupt and highly political Manhattan district attorney’s office” for his advanced knowledge.

“With no crime that can be proven, and based on an ancient fairy tale that has been fully debunked (by many other prosecutors), the far-off Republican candidate and former President of the United States of America, will be arrested on Tuesday of next week. “, Trump predicted, urging his supporters to “protest, take back our nation!”

When contacted by Fox News on Friday for comment, Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s office neither confirmed nor denied whether he planned to issue an indictment for violating the funding of the campaign for candidate Trump’s alleged payment of money to porn actress Stormy Daniels in 2016.

Trump was asked to testify before a grand jury earlier this month regarding the Stormy Daniels scandal, a move that many interpreted as a prelude to an indictment. If so, he would be the first former U.S. president to face criminal charges, a possibility several law enforcement agencies are discussing. “security preparations”.

Trump attorney Joe Tacopino condemned prosecutors for allegedly “fully armed” the justice system, pointing out that the alleged crime – tampering with records – was a misdemeanor and only becomes a crime if prosecutors can prove it was intentionally and maliciously committed.

Tacopino added that Trump cannot be prosecuted in New York State on a federal election charge, and since Trump’s personal funds were used to pay the porn actress, the payment was not at all a campaign expense.

Former Trump attorney Michael Cohen has admitted paying Daniels $130,000 not to go public with her affair with the real estate mogul after the porn star’s reps tried to sell her story at the National Enquirer. However, the former president denied having an affair with Daniels.

Michael Avenatti, the attorney who represented Daniels in her efforts to extricate herself from the nondisclosure agreement she signed with Cohen, was sentenced last year to four years in prison for defrauding the adult film actress around $300,000.
