Donald Trump is deeply concerned about the possibility of him being arrested and fingerprinted as legal sources claim that the NYC Attorney General still has another witness to interview – meaning his arrest could happen later.
The former president claims he will be arrested Tuesday over allegations that he paid porn star Stormy Daniels to keep quiet about their alleged relationship. If Trump’s allegations of an imminent arrest are true, he would be the first former president to face criminal charges.
Trump’s first legal encounter took place in the 1970s, and he’s reportedly been very concerned about the prospect of being arrested ever since, a source told reporters. New York timesincluding Maggie Haberman, who broke several exclusive statements about Trump during his presidency.
His concerns grew after his former CFO, Allen Weisselberg, was arrested in 2021 and covered widely in the media as he was taken to court in handcuffs. Seeing his former best friend in handcuffs and surrounded by officers shook him to his core and those close to him said he could not believe what they were doing to Weisselberg.
However, prosecutors inside DA Alvin Bragg’s office told The Times they don’t know why Trump believes his arrest will happen on Tuesday. There is still another witness testifying before a grand jury, informed sources said, which could delay his potential arrest.

A source close to Trump advisers told the Times their best guess is Tuesday and someone must have relayed that to the Republican before he went to Truth Social to make his claims.
There has been no notification, other than illegal leaks from the Department of Justice and the DA’s office, to NBC and other fake news companies, that a radical left-wing, Democratic, George Soros-funded Manhattan district attorney has decided to take Witch-Hunt to the next level,” a spokesperson said. Trump told DailyMail.com in a statement.
President Trump is rightly highlighting his innocence and weaponizing our system of injustice. He will be in Texas next weekend to a huge crowd. Make America Great Again!
His allegations come more than six years after Trump’s attorneys paid Daniels a total of $130,000 to hush up the case, with New York prosecutors considering whether he should face charges. Trump denies the relationship and knowledge of the payments.
Trump claimed on his Truth Social account that the Manhattan DA’s office would arrest him within days and called the investigation “extremely corrupt and political,” describing the alleged hush money payment as “an old, fully exposed fairy tale.”
He wrote on his own social media platform: ‘The far away leading Republican nominee and former President of the United States of America will be arrested on Tuesday next week. Protest, bring back our home!
His post came hours after it was claimed that Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg was planning to indict Trump next week.
Elon Musk, the world’s richest man, responded to the development on Saturday by saying that if impeached, Trump would be re-elected with a landslide victory in the 2024 presidential election.

He has called them ‘extremely corrupt and political’, describing the alleged hush money payment as ‘an old, fully exposed fairy tale’.
Last week, the former president and hopeful in 2024 was called upon to testify before a grand jury in Manhattan, with Michael Cohen testifying Monday.
Cohen served prison time after pleading guilty to two criminal cases, one of which involved the use of campaign funds in connection with Daniels and another woman who allegedly had an affair with Trump.
He said he was acting on his orders and that the payoffs were meant to keep stories of the case out of public knowledge before the 2016 election. Trump has admitted to compensating Cohen.
Daniels met with prosecutors on Wednesday to answer more questions in the case, and her attorney, Clark Brewster, said she would also make herself available as a witness in the future, if needed.
Cohen also indicated that he gave grand jury testimony that implicated Trump. He testified on Monday for three hours.
Prosecutors inside DA Alvin Bragg’s office told The Times they don’t know why Trump believes his arrest will happen on Tuesday. Insiders said there is still another witness to testify before a grand jury, which could delay his possible arrest.
Speaking beforehand, he said, “This is all about accountability. He must be held accountable for his dirty deeds.
Speculation that indictments were imminent also increased when Bragg told the Trump team that the former president could testify before a grand jury if he so chose—usually a notice at the end of the process that could mean an indictment is approaching.
Legal experts said Trump could face one of two charges related to the payments, but they also acknowledge that both will be difficult to prove.
He could be charged with falsifying business records if Trump allegedly knew his proxy agreement with Cohen was a sham to facilitate payments. That would be a misdemeanor under New York law unless prosecutors prove the records were falsified to conceal another crime, making it a felony.
This other offense may be that the payments violated state election law because the alleged payment was intended to benefit his election campaign.
Trump could face up to four years in prison for the charges.
Also this week, Trump’s attorney, Joseph Tacopina, said an indictment was “more likely” due to the latest developments.
“But one thing I still cling to is the hope that justice will prevail,” he said.
Tacupina also said he hoped Manhattan office DA Alvin Bragg wouldn’t stoop to the level of Mark Pomerantz, who was looking for a person-fit offense.
Tacopina referred to memos by Mark Pomerantz, former special assistant for the Manhattan District, who led the bureau’s investigation into Trump for a year beginning in February 2021.
In a letter sent to the commissioner of the New York City Department of Investigations last Friday, Trump’s attorney accused Bragg and his predecessor, Cyrus Vance Jr., of conducting a “politically motivated investigation.”
Prosecutors have “armed” their offices, Tacopina writes, “scouring every aspect of President Trump’s personal life and business affairs, for decades, in hopes of finding a legal basis—however elusive, inventive or complex—to prosecute him.” “
“It’s hard to argue that previous investigations were politically motivated,” Vance said.
