The decade's most triggering comedy
A Manhattan grand jury will reportedly not hear the case against former President Donald Trump for the rest of this week, pushing back a possible indictment until at least Monday.
Sources told ABC News of that development, which would put an end to speculation that charges were imminent in Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s investigation into Trump over alleged hush money payments to adult film actress Stormy Daniels during the 2016 election cycle.
The grand jury is convening Thursday to consider a different case and is expected to return to the Trump inquiry as early as next week. The panel also did not meet to hear evidence in the Trump case on Wednesday as was expected.
Trump, who denies any wrongdoing, predicted over the weekend that he would be arrested on Tuesday and called on his supporters to protest.
A spokesperson for the former president later said Trump received no “notification” other than “illegal leaks” to the media — likely referring to reports about law enforcement preparing for the possibility of an indictment.
No former president has been criminally indicted in the history of the United States.
Trump announced a third campaign for the White House in November.
The former president faces other investigations, including one in Georgia focused on the 2020 election. He also is being investigated by special counsel Jack Smith for his handling of classified documents and actions related to the events of January 6, 2021.
