donald trump will be arrested on Tuesday and charged with 34 counts of falsifying business records. According to a source familiar with the matter, a NYPD arrest report summarizing the charges will be prepared and entered into the court system before Trump is formally brought to trial.
While neither charge is a misdemeanor, Trump will not be handcuffed, jailed or subject to a photo ID, as determined by the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office.
The charges against Trump were upgraded to Class E felonies, which carry a maximum prison term of four years, due to the alleged intent to conceal an underlying crime.
The exact nature of this crime remains unclear, but it is believed to be linked to the payment of $130,000 in secret money to porn star Stormy Daniels in 2016 to cover up an extramarital affair.
Trump posted a response on his TruthSocial platform:
“Wow! District Attorney Bragg just LEAKAGED the various points and complete information about the pathetic indictment against me,” Trump wrote. “I know the reporter and he does too, unfortunately. MUST BE IMMEDIATELY UNKNOWN Now if he really wants to clean up his reputation he will do the honorable thing and as district attorney indict himself He will go down in court history and his wife Trump Hating will be , I’m sure, very proud of him!
