  • Editor’s note: Trump called on supporters Saturday to “take our nation back,” in yet another ominous pronouncement similar to his Jan. 6 calls.
  • Oh, and by the way, everything he does is as a “victim” for fundraising.
  • And a Tweet by Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy reacting to Trump’s announcement, prior to seeing an indictment, is totally out bounds of regard for the law! To harass and intimidate a district attorney, duly elected by the people of Manhattan, is outrageous. McCarthy is owned by Trump.
  • The Washington Post: Trump calls for protests of what he claims is his imminent arrest

Trump expects to be arrested Tuesday as DA eyes charges

Donald Trump says in a social media post that he expects to be arrested Tuesday

Excerpt from ABC News:

Donald Trump said in a social media post that he expects to be arrested Tuesday as a New York prosecutor is eyeing charges in a case examining hush money paid to women who alleged sexual encounters with the former president. Trump provided no evidence that suggested he was directly informed of a pending arrest and did not say how he knew of such plans.

But in a Saturday morning message on his Truth Social network, Trump noted “illegal leaks” from the Manhattan district attorney’s office that he said indicate “THE FAR & AWAY LEADING REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE & FORMER PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, WILL BE ARRESTED ON TUESDAY OF NEXT WEEK.”

Danielle Filson of the district attorney’s office said prosecutors “will decline to confirm or comment” on questions pertaining to Trump’s post, as well as potential charges. A Trump spokesman did not immediately respond to calls for comment.


In his social media post, Trump repeated his lies that the 2020 presidential election he lost to Democrat Joe Biden was stolen and he urged his followers to “PROTEST, TAKE OUR NATION BACK!” That language evoked the message from the then-president that preceded the riot at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021 when his supporters broke through doors and windows of that building and left officers beaten and bloodied as they tried to stop the certification of the election.

Law enforcement officials in New York have been making security preparations for the possibility that Trump could be indicted.

There has been no public announcement of any time frame for the grand jury’s secret work in the case, including any potential vote on whether to indict the ex-president.
