From the moment that Donald Trump suggested that he would be arrest on Tuesday of this week, the liberal left was celebrating. This was going to be it: The time that they actually got the former President.
Trump, who has endured perhaps dozens of previous investigations with little to no consequence to show for it, was not led away from Mar-a-Lago in handcuffs, and he certainly wasn’t in Manhattan turning himself in.
Instead, a new timeline was being proffered for the alleged arrest of the former President.
Donald Trump will likely be indicted on Wednesday but won’t appear before a judge in New York until next week, DailyMail.com has learned.
‘There will be no arraignment this week,’ a source familiar with the proceedings told DailyMail.com exclusively on Tuesday.
The former president, who is currently in Florida, is expected to be formally charged tomorrow, after which the Manhattan District Attorney’s office will reach out to Trump and his Secret Service detail to make arrangements for his surrender, according to the insider.
He will then fly to New York where he will be arraigned, finger printed, and pose for his mug shot.
Trump had previously encouraged his loyal MAGA base to protest his potential arrest, and to “take our nation back”, prompting preparations by authorities on the east coast.
Meanwhile, it’s all-hands-on-deck for the New York Police Department and Metro Police Department as all officers on Tuesday are expected to be in uniform, ready for anything in the wake of the potential indictment.
Officials in New York City and Washington, D.C., are preparing for possible unrest and demonstrations following the former president’s plea to his supporters to ‘protest, protest, protest’ in response to a potential indictment handed down by Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg over hush money payments made to porn star Stormy Daniels.
For many anti-Trump voices, the sudden rescheduling of The Don’s indictment brings with it a familiar disappointment, after having watched the 45th President of the United States easily defeat nearly every legal challenge brought upon him over the course of the last decade or more.
