The former US President Donald Trump will be escorted by police and his secret service detail from Trump Tower to court to attend a hearing where he will be arraigned and an indictment against him will be formally unsealed.
Trump will face Manhattan prosecutors for historic criminal charges for an alleged payment of “hush money” to a porn star Stormy Daniels ahead of the 2016 presidential election.
Trump will be the first ever former US President to face criminal charges in history and it is expected that he will pled “very loudly ‘not guilty’ before the judge.”
Trump’s legal team are preparing a “host of motions” including a motion to dismiss the case, it has also been revealed that the judge could issue a gagging order preventing him from telling anyone about his indictment on his campaign trail.
Trump’s lawyer Joe Tacopina has warned that should the judge issue a gagging order this will “really set ablaze the passions and the tempers that already have been inflamed by this case.”
Speaking to Fox News Tacopina was asked by Sean Hannity over the possibility of a gagging order, he said, “Obviously, that’s not going to happen.
“There’s no scenario where that’s going to happen, I’m sure of that.”
Trump will be fighting a court case whilst he is in the middle of the White House campaign and the former British ambassador to Washington, Lord Darroch believes the lawyers will “find lots of legal processes to delay things.”
Lord Darroch told Sky News, “This is unprecedented territory.
“I don’t know what happens then – I’m not sure Americans know exactly what happens then, but we will be seeing something we’ve never seen before.”
