Donald Trump has vowed to stay in the 2024 race if he faces criminal charges
Donald Trump could be indicted as soon as Wednesday when Manhattan prosecutors conclude an investigation into Stormy Daniels’ hush money payments.
In anticipation of their decision, there was an increase in online threats directed at government targets and political officials, with plans for what one commenter on Jan. 6 described as 12 times, with guns.
While there was poor turnout at rallies in support of the embattled former president — with one New York attendance so small that the ratio of journalists to protesters was five-to-one — the Trump 2024 campaign is using the moment to fundraise.
On his own social media platform, Trump posted a scathing video late at night Monday attacking the four ongoing criminal investigations into his actions. He targeted what he called “the most disgusting witch-hunt in the history of our country” telling his followers he would “get in their way” from their political “enemies”.
Mr. Trump’s troubles do not end in New York. Reportedly, the Office of the Special Counsel in Washington has evidence that the former president misled his attorneys about the handling of classified documents at Mar-a-Lago, potentially quashing defenses of Trump’s attorney-client privilege.
Protesters shout that Trump is “guilty” before he is charged
Protesters gathered in New York City to demand the arrest of Donald Trump on Tuesday, March 21, ahead of his expected indictment. A group of people held huge signs reading “Trump is guilty” and “No one is above the law” outside the attorney general’s office. A New York grand jury investigating the former US president over a silent payment to a porn star appears poised to complete its work soon as law enforcement officials prepare for potential upheaval in the event of an indictment.

Tristan Snell says court demands from Trump’s legal team are ‘unheard of’
An appeals court for the D.C. Circuit on Tuesday required answers from Donald Trump’s attorneys by midnight Tuesday and a response from the Department of Justice (DOJ) by 6 a.m.
The move concerned a request by Jack Smith, the special counsel appointed by the Justice Department to investigate Mr. Trump’s possible mishandling of classified documents.
Mr. Smith found “compelling preliminary evidence” that the former president knowingly misled his legal team about record-keeping after he left office, ABC News reported, citing sources.
Commentator Tristan Snell said the move was “absolutely unheard of”.
“…This process normally takes months. Instead, they have lawyers present everything in an hour,” he wrote on Twitter.

Trump wants to tie his hands and turn everything into a “spectacle” – report
Donald Trump reportedly told advisers he would want to be handcuffed when he appeared in court if he was indicted by a Manhattan grand jury.
The ex-boss argued that since he would be required to go to court and turn himself in to the authorities for fingerprint and mug shot taking, he might as well turn everything into a “spectacle”, Watchman Reported quoting sources.
According to unnamed sources, Mr Trump was “very worried that any special arrangements – such as a first appearance in court via video link or entry into a courtroom – would make him look weak or a loser”.

Murdoch and his son can testify while the judge weighs the trial in Fox News v. Dominion
Lawyers for Dominion Voting Systems told a Delaware judge that Fox News personalities and executives knew the unsubstantiated allegations of vote-rigging in the 2020 presidential election were false, but continued to air those allegations and host the people who made them.
Both sides are seeking summary judgment, each asking the judge to declare them the winner without having to go ahead with a jury trial as scheduled for next month.
The company sued Fox for $1.6 billion in a defamation lawsuit alleging that the network, at the risk of losing its viewers and affecting its business, knowingly made false claims that energized rival networks that were faithful to conspiracy theories propounded by former President Donald Trump and his allies.

Stormy Daniels story dump
Former President Donald Trump has been out of office for two years, and he is already itching to come back.
But one character from his first run for president refused to leave, and she could end up being a major irritant to him as he seeks a third bid for the White House.
We are talking, of course, about adult movie star Stormy Daniels, also known by her real name, Stephanie Clifford. Daniels made headlines in 2018 when she came forward with allegations that she had an extramarital romantic relationship with the President in 2006, threatened and later bribed her to keep her mouth shut.

DeSantis doubles down on his attacks on ‘dramatic and chaotic’ Trump
Ron DeSantis doubled down on his attacks on Donald Trump ahead of the former president’s expected impeachment and their potential 2024 conflict over the Republican presidential nomination.
Florida Gov. Piers Morgan told in an interview that he was unfazed by the gradual mockery of Trump, calling him “Ron de Sanctimonius” in the recent attacks.
“I don’t know how to spell holy person. I don’t really know what it means, but I kind of like it, it’s long, it has a lot of vowels in it. We’ll go with that, that’s fine,” he told Morgan on Piers Morgan Uncensored.
Earlier in Panama City, Florida, Mr. DeSantis said: “I don’t know what it would be worth paying a porn star to guarantee silence about some sort of alleged relationship.”
“I just, I can’t talk about it.”

Mugshot, fingerprints, handcuffs? What is the Trump impeachment process?
The looming criminal indictment now widely expected to fall on Donald Trump’s shoulders has many, including seasoned legal experts who have followed the justice system for years, wondering exactly what to expect when it actually happens.
Sources close to the investigation told Politico on Monday that the indictment could be issued later that day; A prospect that has led law enforcement officials to erect barricades outside the Manhattan courthouse where Mr. Trump will be tried.
The former president likely will not be arrested unless he resists the indictment and refuses to attend trial.
He will almost certainly not be handcuffed because the crime(s) with which he could be charged are not considered violent crimes.
