Charged, Donald Trump ‘ready for action’, NYPD on alert

There is always a “Super Tuesday” in the American electoral process. Donald Trump’s political career will undoubtedly have a Bloody Tuesday. The former US president is expected to be photographed and fingerprinted in court in New York on Tuesday. He will also face specific charges against the first former US president to face criminal charges. It’s not about the storming of the Capitol or the top-secret documents that were stored in the hundreds in his personal residence, but that goes back to the 2016 election campaign, when he paid the porn actress Stormy Daniels. to hide your romance.

Donald Trump plans to travel to New York on Monday and spend the night at Trump Tower before appearing in court early Tuesday morning and returning to Florida.

The Mar-a-Lago retiree was “shocked” when he learned of the Manhattan grand jury’s indictment Thursday, his lawyer, Joe Tacopina, told NBC. “But he rolled up his sleeves and decided to fight,” the lawyer added, declaring his intention to file “immediately” appeals calling into question the legality of the proceedings, the details of which have not yet been specified. “He’s ready to fight,” he repeated.

Trump supporters to rally Tuesday morning

CNN reports that Donald Trump faces more than 30 charges, and the Associated Press reports that at least one charge is criminal. Before the 2016 presidential election, Donald Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen, long dubbed “Trump’s pit bull,” paid Stormy Daniels $130,000 to cover up an alleged extramarital affair with the real estate mogul ten years earlier. Donald Trump, who denies the connection, had to admit he reimbursed Michael Cohen, but assures the deal was not illegal. The amount may correspond to campaign costs rather than the “legal costs” that Trump placed on his company.

The 76-year-old Republican seized this opportunity to galvanize his supporters around his candidacy for his party’s nomination in the next presidential election. For nearly two weeks, Trump has used the various legal challenges he faces to rally his supporters, raise funds and get back at Joe Biden. In fact, his campaign team announced on Friday that they had raised over $4 million in 24 hours. “I am not afraid of what will happen,” the candidate said in a new donation letter sent by email on Friday.

Susan Necheles, a lawyer on his legal team, told Reuters he pleads not guilty. Trump claims to be the victim of political persecution aimed at preventing a new ascent. He accuses Democratic Manhattan Attorney Alvin Bragg, who is leading the case, of “doing the dirty work” of President Joe Biden. The prosecutor deplored the “baseless and inflammatory” allegations in a letter sent to elected Republican congressmen.

In Florida, on the way to Trump’s residence, supporters are busy defending the honor of their champion. Republican critics are mobilizing in New York. There are few of them, but, fearing events comparable to the storming of the Capitol on January 6, 2021, the NYPD is on alert. Trump supporters, including Republican MP Marjorie Taylor Green, planned to demonstrate in front of the courthouse on Tuesday during a speech. The NYPD — 36,000 police officers and 19,000 civilians — on Friday ordered all of its officers and officers to be in uniform on public roads for a week, according to NBC. Asked by AFP, an NYPD spokesman replied in an email that “officers have been put on alert and that the service remains ready to respond if necessary and ensure everyone is able to exercise their rights peacefully.” But “there are no credible threats to New York at this time,” the spokesman said.
