Trump believes he will be arrested on Tuesday and calls for protests to "take back the nation"

Donald Trump has made history for several not very encouraging reasons with his time in the White House. He was the first president to face two 'impechments' or political processes during his term. He was also the first to openly encourage the insurgency and the seizure of the Capitol to perpetuate himself in power. And now, in addition, it seems imminent that he will be the first former president to be prosecuted for a criminal case.

This is how he himself spread it this Saturday when on his social network he called for the mobilization of his bases. He predicted that he will be arrested Tuesday in the bribery case of porn star Stormy Daniels, who he allegedly paid $130,000 before the 2016 election to keep her mouth shut. He even made her sign a document that she would be punished if he explained anything about that encounter.

All experts assume that the indictment of Trump by the Manhattan attorney general, the Democrat Alvin Bragg, is something imminent and that it will happen in the next few days. But the former vice president has already set a date in a message on his Truth Social network.

"The proven leader by far among the Republican candidates and former president of the United States will be arrested on Tuesday of next week," he said. "Protest, take back our nation," he pleaded.

He attributed it all to an "interested" leak for a case that he defined as having a high political scope, coming from "a corrupt Manhattan prosecutor" who he said, following the conspiracies of the extreme right, was financed by George Soros, one of the evil men to trumpism.

According to his message, this decision is made "without any proven crime and because of a completely discredited fairy tale (by numerous other prosecutors)," he said, although he did not say which ones nor is there evidence that anyone in the judicial system has "discredited" this matter. .

Although there has been talk of its imminence, the grand jury that is receiving the evidence hopes to take a statement from a new witness. The matter, revealed in 2016 by The Wall Street Journal, has already cost the career of Michael Cohen, lawyer, trusted man and Trump "supporter" at that time.

Cohen, in charge of making the payment to the actress, was sentenced to three years in prison and served time in prison. Since then he has become a staunch enemy of his ex-boss and his statement is one of the main evidence for the charge. Stormy Daniels appeared again this week and in her testimony would have confirmed the charge for the bribe and that she had a sexual relationship with Trump in a California hotel. The former president has always denied it.

In The New York Times it was stated that the former president, who already faced a criminal investigation in the 1970s (it ended in an out-of-court agreement), is very agitated and anxious. They say that he was horrified to see on television how Allen Weissselberg, his financial right hand in the business of the family business, was arrested, an affair that ended in sentence for him and for the (civilian) company.

The truth is that several reports appeared on Friday indicating that the local, state and federal security forces were preparing for possible altercations due to this possible accusation. It is feared that there will be riots not only in New York, where the anti-Trumps are in the majority, but also in other places where the former president's bases predominate. No one can underestimate the threat in the memory of the assault on the Capitol.

Pro-Trump sectors assure that this accusation will only strengthen the leadership of his candidacy, because it will have a unifying effect. They say even critics will side with him, as happened when the FBI executed a search warrant at his Mar-a-Lago, Florida mansion to recover secret documents he had taken from the White House.

The judicial problems for Trump seem to be coming to a head. In addition to the matter of the alleged bribery of Daniels and the case for the documents, investigations are advancing in Georgia and Washington for his alleged attempt to manipulate the election result of November 2020 and for his role in the insurgency of January 6, 2021 , respectively.
