An inside source revealed that NYPD is buffing up its manpower and security measures to prepare for the arrest of former President Donald Trump.
The arrest will occur tomorrow (Wednesday, March 22nd) as New York’s District Attorney’s office has negotiated the details of Trump’s surrender with Secret Service.
A grand jury is expected to officially hand up its indictment tomorrow, which will occur before the arrest.

The source revealed, “The NYPD is going to do what they do when the United Nations comes into town, with stepped-up security. But they don’t even think it’s going to happen this week.”
There is an “additional witness” who is testifying on Wednesday. There is a possibility that Trump doesn’t come to New York until next week.
“I’m told there’s an additional witness who is going to testify on Wednesday, so if there’s an indictment, it’s not going to happen until Wednesday or Thursday, so they think he probably comes next week,” the source added.

A number of people have noted that former President Bill Clinton and his wife, Hillary, allegedly committed the same crime, but were never indicted by a grand jury.
Trump is accused of paying $130,000 in alleged “hush money” to the then-lawyer of former porn star Stormy Daniels. Trump says the allegations are false and no crime was committed. Despite the total lack of evidence, Trump says the investigation continues as a result of funding from far-left billionaire George Soros.
During the same time period in 2016, Clinton’s campaign hid a payment for the Russian collusion sham by labeling it “legal fees.” Clinton was never arrested, but instead slapped with a fine.

In the 90s, former President Bill Clinton allegedly paid Paula Jones $850,000 and no one batted an eye.
Trump says the case is based on “an old and fully debunked fairytale.” Trump’s lawyer will also likely argue that the five-year statute of limitations for a criminal charge has expired.
This politically motivated attack on former President Donald Trump is unprecedented.
For the first time in U.S. history, a former president may be soon arrested on felony charges due to a “corrupt and highly political” criminal investigation in New York.
If Trump is indicted, the Democrat investigators claim he will be treated like other felony defendants who undergo fingerprinting and a mugshot.
Trump would likely surrender himself to Manhattan Criminal Court. Felony defendants are usually put in handcuffs, but it will reportedly be up to Secret Service whether they handcuff Trump.
Trump will most likely not be placed in a cell for security reasons. If the case moves forward, Trump could be on trial in the closing months of the 2024 presidential campaign.
