Donald Trump Issues Statement Ahead of Looming Arraignment

Donald Trump said late Sunday evening that he would depart his Florida residence Monday afternoon for New York City to face the witch hunt arraignment from the Stormy Daniels “hush money” investigation.

“I will be leaving Mar-a-Lago on Monday at 12 noon, heading to Trump Tower in New York. On Tuesday morning I will be going to, believe it or not, the Courthouse. America was not supposed to be this way!” Trump said on Truth Social.

“ELECTION INTERFERENCE!!!” he said in the following post.

“The Corrupt D.A. has no case. What he does have is a venue where it is IMPOSSIBLE for me to get a Fair Trial (it must be changed!), and a Trump Hating Judge, hand selected by the Soros backed D.A. (he must be changed!). Also has the DOJ working in the D.A.’s Office – Unprecedented!” he said in a post earlier Sunday.

President Trump announced Sunday morning that he will deliver remarks from Mar-a-Lago Tuesday evening after returning from the witch hunt arraignment.

DEVELOPING: Manhattan Judge May Impose GAG Order on Donald Trump Monday

Trump is scheduled to be arraigned in New York City Tuesday at 2:15 p.m.

From FOX 29:

After being indicted by a Manhattan grand jury, former President Donald Trump is expected to be arraigned in court on Tuesday, a law enforcement source has told Fox News.

Judge Juan Merchan is the trial judge presiding over the case, which stems from Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg's investigation into alleged hush money payments Trump made to porn star Stormy Daniels in 2016. Trump is scheduled to be arraigned at 2:15 p.m. in Merchan's courtroom on the 15th floor at 100 Centre Street in New York City.

In addition to Trump's personal attorney Joe Tacopina, a second source has confirmed that Trump has made arrangements with the district attorney's legal team to surrender without handcuffs. Detectives with the DA's office will handle the arrest.

Law enforcement agencies including the U.S. Secret Service, New York Police Department, FBI, New York State court officers and the DA's office will meet Friday afternoon to finalize details about the logistics and security of Trump's arrest.
