On Saturday, former US President Donald Trump took to social media to express his belief that he may soon be arrested in connection with a long-standing investigation involving a hush money scheme with adult film actress Stormy Daniels.
While he provided no specific details as to why he anticipates his arrest, he urged his supporters to protest in the event that he is indicted. This is similar to his previous appeals to his followers following the 2020 presidential election.
Trump’s team, however, stated that they have not received any notifications from prosecutors regarding his possible indictment. Nonetheless, reports suggest that law enforcement agencies in New York City have been holding meetings throughout the week to discuss security preparations in anticipation of such an occurrence.
The investigation into the hush money scheme involving Stormy Daniels began during Trump’s presidency and has been ongoing since then.
The alleged scheme involved paying off Daniels to keep her from disclosing information about an affair she claimed to have had with Trump in 2006. Trump’s former personal attorney, Michael Cohen, has already been convicted and sentenced to prison in connection with this case.
In his social media statement, Trump once again called on his supporters to take action and “take our nation back.” This has raised concerns among law enforcement agencies about potential unrest in the event of an indictment.
With the political climate already tense, this latest development has only added to the unease felt by many in the United States.
