NYC putting up steel barricades ahead of potential Trump indictment

March 21, 2023

New York City police officers are setting up steel barricades ahead of a potential indictment in a case involving former President Donald Trump.

The actions take place as the Manhattan District Attorney's Office decides whether to bring charges against Trump in a case involving payments made to Stormie Daniels.

Trump's words

“Illegal leaks from a corrupt and highly political Manhattan District Attorney’s Office, which has allowed new records to be set in violent crime and whose leader is funded by George Soros, indicate that, with no crime being able to be proven, and based on an old and fully debunked (by numerous other prosecutors!) fairytale, the far and away leading Republican candidate and former president of the United States of America, will be arrested on Tuesday of next week,” Trump said.

“Protest, take our nation back," he added.

The DA's response

“We do not tolerate attempts to intimidate our office or threaten the rule of law in New York,” Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg wrote to staff following Trump's remarks, according to the Associated Press.

The allegations are regarding $130,000 paid to Daniels ahead of the 2016 election offer allegations that she had an affair with Trump a decade earlier.

The case involves whether the payment reported campaign finance violations and if the Trump Organization made a false record of the incident.

700 police preparing

A reported 700 officers have been called up for the potential decision which could be made as early as Tuesday.

While some on the left are supportive of Trump's arrest, many see the action filled with the potential to make him more popular ahead of the 2024 election.

The unprecedented event could be used as a major advantage in Trump's campaign to highlight a "corrupt government" that he would claim to change.

The speculation will continue to grow as preparations are made ahead of the historic decision in the New York case.
