According to five senior officials with inside knowledge of the matter, as reported by NBC New York, Local, state, and federal law enforcement and security agencies in the state of New York are beginning to brace their security measures in preparation for a possible indictment against former President Donald J. Trump in the Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s hush money investigation, that may come down the pike as early as next week.
Officials in the state confirm that multiple law enforcement agencies are already preliminary security assessments and beginning to discuss potential security plans pertaining to the area in and around the Manhattan Criminal Court at 100 Centre Street, in preparation for the very real possibility and the likelihood that scandal-ridden former President Donald Trump is officially criminally charged in connection to Bragg’s investigation into the alleged 2016 hush money payments made to adult film star and alleged former Trump affair partner Stormy Daniels, made on Trump’s behalf by his then-personal attorney and self-described “fixer” Michael Cohen, in an effort to buy Daniels’ silence just weeks before the 2016 presidential election that Trump would go on to win.
If Donald Trump is indicted in this case, the former president would likely be required to travel to Manhattan to face his charges.
NBC New York clearly notes that officials are heavily stressing that these interagency conversations and security preparation are purely precautionary, as Donald Trump has not been charged with any crimes, to date.
