According to Trump’s attorney, the former president would reportedly turn himself in to law enforcement officials if he is charged by a grand jury in Manhattan in connection with a $130,000 hush money payment that he reportedly made to porn actress Stormy Daniels.
The statements made by attorney Joseph Tacopina are a response to a report that was published by NBC News.
The NBC News article stated that federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies were analyzing security assessments and making plans to prepare for the possibility that Trump will be indicted as soon as the following week.
Tacopina’s remarks come in response to the NBC News article.
According to a report by Fox News, the office of the Manhattan District Attorney requested a meeting with law enforcement authorities to discuss logistics for some time next week.
This would indicate that they are expecting an indictment to be handed down the following week.
This lawsuit includes an alleged payment that former Trump attorney Michael Cohen says he gave to Daniels during the presidential campaign to keep quiet about an alleged tryst between Trump and Daniels in 2006.
The tryst is said to have occurred in 2006.
Cohen entered a guilty plea to the associated crimes and was sentenced to serve time in jail.
