Paid hush money? – Donald Trump announces his own arrest


In his own words, former US President Donald Trump is about to be arrested — on the basis of “illegal leaks from a corrupt prosecutor,” he claims on the short message channel Truth Social, which he founded.

The arrest should take place next Tuesday, Trump said on the social network. According to the AP news agency, these are alleged hush money payments to porn actress Stormy Daniels in the 2016 election campaign. The ex-president himself gave no indication of the allegations. He only wrote about an ‘old fairy tale’ that had long since been disproved.

“Take Back Our Nation!”
He should be arrested with no crime proven, Trump wrote. The 76-year-old wants to run for president again next year and is already in campaign mode — in the same post, he touted himself as the “clearly leading Republican nominee.” Trump also called on his supporters to protest the imminent arrest and “take our nation back.”

Porn star Daniels testified a few days ago in the hush money case before the responsible New York prosecutor’s office, as her lawyer Clark Brewster announced on Twitter. “Stormy has responded to questions and has agreed to be available as a witness or for further investigation if necessary,” he said Wednesday. Daniels thanked her lawyer on Twitter for “helping us in our ongoing fight for truth and justice.”

Charges likely, according to reports
US media expect a jury to decide whether to indict Trump after prosecutors present evidence. He would be the first former American leader to be charged with an alleged crime.

The case concerns hush money payments to two women: model Karen McDougal and porn star Daniels. The latter claims to have had sex with Trump in 2006. According to his own statements, his then-lawyer, Michael Cohen, who has since left him, paid her hush money on Trump’s behalf in 2016 to avoid harm from his boss in the presidential election campaign. Trump and his lawyers admit payment but deny there was any sexual activity. Trump has repeatedly described the Manhattan Attorney’s Office’s investigation as a “political witch hunt”.
