NEW YORK (AP) — An extraordinary moment in U.S. history is set to unfold in Manhattan on Tuesday: Donald Trump former presidentwho will look at the multiple investigations related to the elections, will make a surrender to face criminal charges from 2016 hush money payments.
The booking and arrangement It is likely to be relatively short, though hardly usual, as Trump is fingerprinted, learns of the charges against him and pleads, as expected, not guilty. John Merchan the judge ruled that TV cameras are not allowed in the courtroom.
Trumpet, who was accused twice by the US House but never convicted in the US Senate, he would become the first president to be convicted of criminal charges. The 45th head of state will be escorted from Trump Tower to the forum by the Secret Service and receive his mug shot.
Trump’s lawyer, Joe Tacopina, said Tuesday that Trump would not plead guilty to the lesser charges, even if he were to resolve the case. He said he didn’t believe he would ever do a jury trial, but conceded, “There’s a lot of mystery here, because we never do what’s been done before.”
“I think it will be a typical process, which will not be long, 20-30 minutes. There will be no mani-, “Tacopina told ABC “Good morning America.”
New York officials have been dogged by protests from Trump supporters, who believe the former Republican president’s New York grand jury indictment and three additional pending investigations are politically motivated and aimed at discrediting him. The White House would receive his bid in 2014
Trump, a former reality TV star, has adapted his political narrative, saying he has raised $8 million less in the week since the “witch hunt” indictment. He killed the Manhattan district attorney, protesting supporters and claiming without evidence. presiding judge of the case “He hates me” – what his lawyer said is not true.
Trump is scheduled to return home to Palm Beach, Florida; sea lake, on Tuesday evening to hold a rally, marking a new reality: to submit to the demands of the American criminal justice system, while projecting an air of defiance and victimhood in the events of the famous campaigns. At least 500 key supporters have been invited, with some of the most pro-Trump congressional Republicans expected to attend.
Trump’s conviction does not prevent him from running for or winning the presidency in 2024.
Inside the Manhattan courtroom, prosecutors led by New York’s district attorney, Alvin Bragg, a Democrat, are expected to unseal an indictment handed down by a grand jury next week. This is when Trump and his defense attorneys will have their first glimpse of the specific allegations against him.
The the prosecution has many charges falsifying business records, including at least one felony, two people familiar with the case told the Press Associate last week.
After Trump’s indictment, he is expected to be released by authorities because the charges against him do not require bail.
The search is a search made for six-figure payments porn actor Storm Daniels and former Playboy model Karen McDougal. Both say they have been dating since they were married to Trump years before he entered politics. Trump denies having sexual relations with both women and has denied any wrongdoing.
The indictment against the withdrawal of heavy security in New York, more than two years later, will explain Trump voters stormed the US Capitol in unsuccessful bids to stop Congressional certification of Democrat Joe Biden’s victory.
Although officials said they had no understanding of the probable cause, they were on high alert for any potential disturbances.
“As long as there are some rioters planning to come to our city tomorrow, our message is clear and simple: ‘Stand up,'” said Mayor Eric Adams. “While you’re in town, be on your best behavior,” Adams said at a public park forum Tuesday.
Trump pollster John McLaughlin said the former president would approach the day with “dignity.”
“He will be the man,” McLaughlin said. “He will show strength, and he will show dignity, and through this we will reach and win the election.”
But Trump was defiant. Late Monday night, he lashed out at Biden on his social media, suggesting that the president should be present against his legal troubles.
Despite their presence around Trump’s castle and the square where Trump will stand before the judge, they stayed overnight. There were signs and slogans and slogans stuck to the former president’s posts, one urging passers-by to donate to the Trump fund in support of the presidential library and another showing Trump behind bars.
The public’s fascination with the accident was evident Monday as national television images carried live motorcades from the Mar-a-Lago club to a private, red, white and blue Boeing 757 emblazoned with his name. Trump then flew to New York, where cameras followed the motorcade into Manhattan and spent the night at Trump Tower as he prepared to turn around.
The former president and his aides are embroiled in a media circus. After initially being caught off guard when news of the impeachment broke Thursday evening, Trump and his team hoped to use the case to their advantage. Still, they asked the judge Monday in a filing to move photo and video coverage of the prosecution.
Although prosecutors claim that no person is above the law, the logistical complications of bringing criminal charges against the former president are pressing.
New York’s ability to carry out free actions and drama in a case involving a polarizing president could prove to be an important opportunity for prosecutors in Atlanta and Washington to conduct their investigations of Trump, which could also result in charges. Those investigations are about to pay off in the 2020 election results as well as being mishandled documents are indicated at Mar-a-Lago.
Top Republicans, including Trump’s potential rivals in next year’s GOP presidential primary, have criticized the case against him. Biden, who has yet to formally announce that he will seek re-election next year, and other leading Democrats have had little to say about it.
Prosecutors insist their case against Trump has nothing to do with the state.
