In a social media post, former president Donald Trump claimed that he expects to be arrested on Tuesday due to an investigation into hush money paid to women who alleged sexual encounters with him. However, he provided no evidence to support this claim. Trump’s post on his Truth Social network referenced illegal leaks from the Manhattan district attorney’s office, which he said indicate that “THE FAR & AWAY LEADING REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE & FORMER PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, WILL BE ARRESTED ON TUESDAY OF NEXT WEEK.” The district attorney’s office declined to comment on the matter, and there has been no announcement of any time frame for the grand jury’s secret work in the case. If Trump were to be indicted, it would mark an extraordinary development after years of investigations into his business, political, and personal dealings. The 76-year-old has denied any wrongdoing and cast the investigation as a “witch hunt” by a Democratic prosecutor bent on sabotaging his 2024 presidential campaign. Witnesses, including former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen, have been called to testify in the case, which is examining whether any state laws were broken in connection with the payments or the way Trump’s company compensated Cohen for his work to keep the women’s allegations quiet.
