Despite former President Donald Trump announcing on Saturday (March 18) that he would be indicted on Tuesday (March 21), sources have revealed that the former President hasn’t received formal notification about whether Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg will bring against him.
According to reporting by Fox News, sources familiar with the matter have revealed Trump has not been notified about any imminent indictment but highlighted that there was a real possibility that Bragg would indict the former President.
The report also reveals that “multiple sources” confirmed that at least one witness was still to appear before the grand jury when it convenes on Wednesday at 2 p.m.
However, the witness has yet to be confirmed.
The deliberations of a grand jury are secret and often remain under seal until an arraignment.
The former President’s attorneys will be notified if Bragg decides to indict Trump. If that notification is made, Trump’s attorneys can negotiate Trump’s court appearance with the office of Manhattan’s District Attorney.
However, should Trump get indicted, sources revealed it could happen as early as Wednesday, adding that if that’s the case, the former President could appear in court as early as next week.
Trump’s surrender, should he be indicted for the $130,000 hush money payment given to Stormy Daniels, would also be discussed by the New York Police Department and the U.S. Secret Service.
However, according to reporting by The Guardian, Trump has suggested he wanted to be handcuffed and do a perp walk in a show of defiance.
