Late Saturday night a report was released saying that Former President Donald Trump might not be arrested after all.
- Shortly after news spread that Former President Trump would be arrested Tuesday, a report was published Saturday night revealing that Trump’s indictment is “on hold” until at least one more witness testifies Monday afternoon.
- While authorities have been relatively quiet surrounding the ordeal, Business Insider said that “a source with knowledge of the investigation” told them on Saturday night “there is one more witness,” apparently meaning the indictment is not certain until this witness testifies.
- The grand jury meets in secret in a lower Manhattan office building during three-hour afternoon sessions on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.
- While the source wouldn’t directly say who the witness appeared to be, they revealed that “a separate source, who also spoke on condition of anonymity, told Insider that the witness is not Allen Weisselberg, Trump’s former CFO, who is serving a five-month sentence for admittedly masterminding a payroll tax-dodge scheme at the Trump Organization.”
- The main charge is expected to be a felony, “falsifying business records in the first degree,” based on the claim that Trump was involved in concealing payments to porn star Stormy Daniels over an alleged affair.
CONSERVATIVE HOST CLAY TRAVIS ON TRUMP’S ALLEGED ARREST:
“If anyone should be arrested next week, it’s the entire Biden crime family. Trump is being arrested for allegedly paying a porn star money. Meanwhile China is paying millions to the Biden’s entirely for political favor. It’s totally bonkers. We now live in a banana republic,” Travis said.
- Last week, Trump claimed he would be arrested on Tuesday, as New York prosecutors investigated payments made while he was a presidential candidate in 2016.
- Trump stated on his Truth Social network that “illegal leaks” from the Manhattan district attorney’s office suggest that “THE FAR & AWAY LEADING REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE & FORMER PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, WILL BE ARRESTED ON TUESDAY OF NEXT WEEK.”
- Republican lawmakers, conservative figures and commentators said the predicted arrest of Trump showed how the justice system was “weaponized against all Americans” and warned that the United States is turning into a “banana republic.”
- “Here we go again — an outrageous abuse of power by a radical DA who lets violent criminals walk as he pursues political vengeance against President Trump,” House Speaker Kevin McCarthy said last week, calling for an immediate investigation to determine “if federal funds are being used to subvert our democracy by interfering in elections with politically motivated prosecutions.”
