Trump posted on Truth Social that he could be arrested on Tuesday, March 21, due to the investigation of the alleged bribery of actress Stephanie Clifford, better known as Stormy Daniels.
“The far & away leading republican candidate & former President of the United States of America, will be arrested on Tuesday of next week, protest, take our nation back!” posted the former president on Saturdays.
According to leaked reports, Trump has claimed, that the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office, which is leading the investigation against the former president, is being funded by investor George Soros.
In the past, the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office had offered Donald Trump to testify in the case, as well as his lawyer Michael Cohen, who presumably gave Clifford $130,000 to keep quiet about the alleged relationship she had with Donald Trump 20 years ago.
Last week, Trump’s former lawyer met with prosecutors in charge of the investigation, although no details have yet been revealed.
However, in an interview with ABC, the lawyer commented that there was sufficient evidence for the former president to be charged with a criminal offense.
Likewise, on March 15, prosecutors met with actress Stormy Daniels to determine whether charges would be filed against Donald Trump for bribery before the 2016 election.
If the Manhattan prosecutor files charges against the former president, it could potentially affect his candidacy in the 2024 elections, and he would become the first president to be accused of a crime.
Clark Brewser, the actress lawyer, posted on Twitter that his client met with investigators at the request of the DA’s office.
Thank you to my amazing attorney (who also always spells my name correctly 🤣) for helping me in our continuing fight for truth and justice. https://t.co/rvie0qBHVs
