Today could be the day Donald Trump turns in his indictment from Manhattan D.A. Alvin Bragg for paying the ex-boss of porn star Stormy Daniels.
The grand jury in the case against Trump convenes again Wednesday in New York City as NYPD officers maintain a heightened presence amid fears of disruption if the court decides to proceed with an arrest.
Meanwhile, Trump is moving away from the city he once called home and instead sauntering into his Palm Beach, Florida, residence at his Mar-a-Lago club.
While the indictment could come as soon as Wednesday, Trump won’t appear before a New York judge until next week, DailyMail.com has learned.

New York state court officers erected barricades outside the criminal court Wednesday morning amid reports that March 22, 2023 could be the day Trump is indicted in the case involving the silent money payment to Stormy Daniels.
“There will be no trial guidance this week,” a source familiar with the proceedings said on Tuesday.
After formal charges are filed, the Manhattan district attorney’s office will contact Trump and his Secret Service detail to make arrangements for his surrender, according to the insider.
Trump warned over the weekend that he could be indicted as early as Tuesday, but law enforcement sources told DailyMail.com the first action is likely on Wednesday when the panel is expected to hear another witness.
It is still not clear who this witness was.
Trump said in a post on the Truth Social website Wednesday morning that the real crime would be if he ended up being charged in the payout case.
Meanwhile, new photos by DailyMail.com revealed that the former president’s plane, dubbed Trump Force One, sat at Palm Beach International Airport in Florida with stairs and engine turbines set up and spinning.
“Every article I read, every show I watch, even the so-called haters saying President Trump did nothing wrong, there is no crime here!” Trump wrote in his online post. As Biden says, “No, I mean it, I’m not kidding.” “
“It would be a crime if I was charged!!!”
The NYPD remains on high alert after all 36,000 officers have been instructed to uniform and prepare for deployment.
The Washington, D.C. Metro Police Department is also preparing for the unrest — hoping to avoid another Jan. 6-like event if the former chief is indicted.

Trump continues to deny the substance of allegations of a sexual relationship with porn star Stormy Daniels — his lawyer has called the $130,000 a “disturbing amount” that rich or famous people sometimes use to hide a distraction.
Trump remains confined to his Mar-a-Lago residence in Palm Beach, Florida. Supporters gathered outside the club this week, encouraged by their former chairman, to protest a possible indictment.

As Trump prepares for his first possible indictment, another case against him rages in Washington, D.C. The judge overseeing the classified Mar-a-Lago documents investigation has ruled that the former president’s lawyer must be forced to stand trial. Jury.
DC District Court Judge Beryl Howell ruled on Tuesday that Trump may have knowingly concealed the existence of more classified records at Mar-a-Lago from his attorney Evan Corcoran.
Corcoran appeared before the grand jury in January, and repeatedly used attorney-client privilege as his reason for not answering their questions. But now, ABC News and CNN have confirmed that Corcoran should return before the panel.
The Trump team was asked to brief on Tuesday night, with the Justice Department responding by 6 a.m. on Wednesday.
Trump allegedly paid Daniels $130,000 in the midst of the 2016 presidential campaign and ordered her to keep quiet about their relationship, with sources telling DailyMail.com his goal was to make sure he didn’t go back to his wife, Melania.
The Wall Street Journal first reported on the existence of the payment on January 12, 2018 — just a year into Trump’s presidency. The former president’s personal attorney at the time, Michael Cohen, issued a statement a month later acknowledging the payment for the first time.
Bragg’s arrival at his office Wednesday morning was closely supervised by court security and the NYPD. Shortly after starting work and preparing for the grand jury, Trump posted on social media that Bragg was a “rogue prosecutor” who should focus on rising crime in New York.
The rogue prosecutor, having difficulty with the grand jury, especially after the powerful testimony against him by highly respected former lawyer Phyllon Cohen, is trying to build a case that has never been raised and actually, COULD NOT BE BROUGHT, Trump wrote.
He added, “If he spent that time, effort, and money fighting violent crime, which is ravaging New York City, the once beautiful and safe Manhattan, which has become an absolute hell, would be a better place to live!”

Trump supporters and haters took to the streets in New York City and around Mar-a-Lago this week to defend or against his imprisonment.
Supporters gathered outside Trump Tower in Manhattan and along the road to Trump’s residence in Florida on Monday and Tuesday after the former president urged his loyal base on Truth Social to “protest, protest, protest” over his impending indictment.
Some are beginning to worry that this social media post could lead to political violence and another scene like what happened at the US Capitol on January 6, 2021.
Police took to the streets in New York City again early Wednesday morning, preparing for the worst should Trump be charged or arrested.
Outside the Manhattan courthouse, counter-protesters were also stationed, calling for Trump to be arrested and put behind bars.
Trump posted on his Truth Social platform Tuesday night a Fox News report claiming that “sources say there’s a real chance the DA may choose not to charge Trump while rumors swirl.”
The police presence on Wednesday morning included the use of dogs to comb the area – likely to sniff out bombs and other nefarious objects – after New York courts were inundated with threats earlier this week.
A bomb threat made via a 9-1-1 phone call Tuesday closed the Manhattan Civil Court on Tuesday morning and halted proceedings, according to a court spokesperson.
The threat delayed the start of a hearing for the New York attorney general in a separate case involving Trump and his company allegedly involved in a years-old fraud scheme.
