New York Grand Jury Cancels Wednesday Meeting: Report

The New York grand jury considering indicting former President Trump has canceled its Wednesday meeting, delaying the potential indictment.

Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg (D) reportedly told the panel of jurors they should still be on standby to report on Thursday. The grand jury empaneled for Bragg’s investigation typically meets Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. 

The cancellation comes after Trump predicted over the weekend that he could be arrested as soon as Tuesday in connection with the probe.

“ILLEGAL LEAKS FROM A CORRUPT & HIGHLY POLITICAL MANHATTAN DISTRICT ATTORNEYS OFFICE, WHICH HAS ALLOWED NEW RECORDS TO BE SET IN VIOLENT CRIME & WHOSE LEADER IS FUNDED BY GEORGE SOROS, INDICATE THAT, WITH NO CRIME BEING ABLE TO BE PROVEN, & BASED ON AN OLD & FULLY DEBUNKED (BY NUMEROUS OTHER PROSECUTORS!) FAIRYTALE, THE FAR & AWAY LEADING REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE & FORMER PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, WILL BE ARRESTED ON TUESDAY OF NEXT WEEK,” Trump posted to his social media platform Truth Social. “PROTEST, TAKE OUR NATION BACK!”

Earlier this week, Fox News reported the grand jury scheduled an additional witness on Wednesday. The report cited a law enforcement official familiar with the case who says he doesn’t expect the indictment to come until next week at the earliest.

The officer also noted the logistical issues of closing down streets and putting lights up with generators, extra barriers, and extra police as well as public safety concerns as reasons for delaying the indictment.

“If the former president does come up to Manhattan, there will be a major police presence and the area will get shut down. Trump has called on his supporters to protest ahead of a possible indictment, ” Fox News reports.

On Monday, authorities were seen erecting barricades outside of the Manhattan Criminal Court.

The unprecedented indictment hanging over Trump’s head stems from a $130,000 hush money payment he allegedly made to porn actress Stormy Daniels during the 2016 presidential campaign.

Prosecutors are expected to charge Trump with a felony by arguing that the alleged crime was committed to hide an illegal campaign contribution. The potential problem for Trump centers around how his company reimbursed former attorney Michael Cohen, who pleaded guilty to related charges and served time in prison.

The payment to Daniels was listed as a legal expense and Trump’s company cited a retainer agreement with Cohen. The retainer agreement did not exist and the reimbursement was not related to any legal services from Cohen, thus setting up a potential misdemeanor criminal charge of falsifying business records. A report by NBC News said that Trump personally signed several of the checks to Cohen while he was serving as president.

Prosecutors can elevate the misdemeanor to a felony if they can prove that Trump’s “‘intent to defraud’ included an intent to commit or conceal a second crime.”

Prosecutors argue that the second crime is that the $130,000 hush payment was an improper donation to the Trump campaign because the money was used to stop a story for the purpose of benefiting his presidential campaign.

  1. 3/22/2023…SP*** Even CNN’s Van Jones urges Alvin Bragg to ‘step back from the brink’ on Trump Indictment…A radical Leftist District Attorney, funded by George Soros, is POTENTIALLY ARRESTING PRESIDENT TRUMP
    This is OUTRAGEOUS and a direct attack on the 74 million Americans who voted for President Trump and Republicans in 2020.
    While violent criminals are RELEASED WITHOUT cash bail for crimes like rape, assault, and worse, Democrats are targeting President Trump.
    The far-Left knows if the Presidential election were held tomorrow, Republicans would WIN and Democrats would LOSE, so they’re SILENCING their enemies in anticipation. It’s UN-AMERICAN and a disgraceful tyrannical just like dictators from third-world countries

  2. It’s pretty sad for us Americans that this administration keeps trying to attack Trump for their political agenda. If they arrest Trump the patriots will fully support Trump and it is obvious they care nothing for our country and they should be taken to GITMO for prosecution for crimes against humanity and TREASON and we all know the penalty for that! It’s insane that the republicans sit back and have watched this evolve for decades. They regularly take our taxpayer dollars and spend them on other countries but America and we are DONE WITH THIS! Something good needs to happen!

  3. Shades of the rise of Hitler in Germany. This USA,as it was started from religious and freedom origions, has long ago lost it’s way. Although it is now denied but this nation’s beginning was started on Judeo-Christian traditions and morals. People were self sufficient. But today this nation is no longer the USA as it was handed down to us by our nation’s forefathers. We are now just the newest “Banana Republic” of these America’s. Will the last real American turn the lights please.

  4. Third world justice system, and a criminal government going after their political enemies! Picking men and then finding a crime, as the courts give their blessings! All the while looking the other way and whitewashing their favored Marxists democrats!

  5. This has to be a f_g joke, this was already settled,there is no crime here.This george soros attorney gen. bragg must be totally incompetent, to try and pull this on our president.This political ploy, will be the death of the dumbocrap party, and a landslide victory for Trump in 2024.Hidenbiden doesn’t have a chance in hell, of winning again,even the dummycraps don’t want him or harris on the ticket.But the clown show continues. Be careful what u wish for, 74,000,000 Trump people, and now probably,tens of millions more, if u, try to railroad Trump for this ridiculous charge of nothing. This corrupt government, will be held to account,may take some time,but will be done.

  6. I agree with many commentators who compare our current government with banana Republics, but America’s first Constitutional amendment is working overtime to allow our society to peel back and expose the mis-guided actions and corruptness of socialist leaning politicians. To wit: Our ability to use the forum of greatamericanewsdesk.com to express our concerns. May God continue to bless American exceptionalism!!!
