fox News reported on Friday evening that sources told the outlet that Donald Trump will be arrested as soon as next week. Investigators have been seeking charges over payments made to porn star Stormy Daniels before the 2016 presidential race. They invited Trump to testify before a grand jury, which is often an indication that indictments are imminent.
“The Manhattan DA’s office has asked for a meeting with law enforcement ahead of a potential Trump indictment,” Fox reported. “This is coming to Fox News from a source in the courts.”
The probe is investigating whether Trump made a $130,000 payment prior to Daniels prior to his successful 2016 presidential run. Prosecutors said that the money was given to keep Daniels quiet about a long-denied affair.
Trump has denied knowing about the payments, which were made via his attorney, though Trump’s current attorney has stated that Trump could not have publicly stated that he knew about the payments, even if he did, if it was a settlement that came with a requirement to not disclose those terms.
“The meeting, which was requested yesterday and has not been set yet, is to discuss logistics for sometime next week, which would mean that they are anticipating an indictment next week,” Fox reported.
“Some sources familiar with the planning said they will go over security preparations in and around the courthouse and lower Manhattan. Secret Service will take the lead in what they will allow or will not allow. The source cautioned, mentioning for instance, that the decision to handcuff the president, or former President or not. They will set the tone and will escort him into the courtroom,” Fox reported.
