(FeaturedNews.com) – The U.S. Capitol Police prepared for the possibility that there will be protests and demonstrations following a potential indictment of former President Donald Trump. On Monday, the Senate sergeant at arms disclosed the preparation in a notice to senators’ offices.
In the email sent to Senate staff members, the Senate sergeant at arms disclosed that while they were not currently tracking any specific threats, they were preparing with their law enforcement partners for the possibility of demonstrations. This was why there would also be a noticeable difference as more law enforcement officials would be present on Capitol Hill.
On Saturday, Trump took to his social media platform, Truth Social to claim that according to “illegal leaks” he expected to be arrested on Tuesday in connection to the New York County district attorney’s hush money investigation. He closed his post by calling on his supporters to protest.
The Manhattan District Attorney’s office has not yet disclosed whether or not Trump would be indicted, but many sources close to the case have stated that there would probably not be any developments by Tuesday. On Wednesday, the grand jury is scheduled to meet again.
The grand jury is investigating the alleged hush money payment made on behalf of Donald Trump to adult film star Stormy Daniels ahead of the 2016 presidential election in exchange for her silence over their affair. According to NBC News, an indictment would most likely focus on falsified business records.
Trump’s lawyer Joe Tacopina has maintained that Trump’s actions were “not a crime” and that he had been acting in accordance with the advice given to him by his then-lawyer Michael Cohen when he instructed for the payments to be made.
