According to sources, the Manhattan grand jury will not hear the case against former President Donald Trump for the rest of the week, with a possible indictment pushed back until at least Monday. This ends speculation that charges may soon come from Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s investigation into alleged hush money payments to adult film actress Stormy Daniels during 2016’s election cycle.
The grand jury did not convene on Wednesday as expected and is expected to return to the Trump inquiry no earlier than next week.
President Trump publicly predicted his arrest on Tuesday and called on his supporters to protest, claiming he received no notification other than “illegal leaks” in the media. This would be unprecedented in U.S. history, with no former president having ever been criminally indicted before.
Trump recently announced a third campaign for the White House in November.
