Before his attendance at the wrestling tournament, Donald Trump had spent the day at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach. Trump was seen on Saturday boarding the Boeing 757 that qualifies as his plane.
It was the former commander-in-chief’s first public remark that a leak at the Manhattan district attorney’s hearing indicated he is on the verge of being indicted and arrested.
Trump announced on Saturday that “ILLEGAL FACTS” from Bragg’s office suggested he would be arrested on Tuesday:
NOW ILLEGAL LEAKS FROM A CORRUPT AND HIGHLY POLITICAL MANHATTAN DISTRICT ATTORNEY’S OFFICE, WHICH HAS ALLOWED NEW RECORDS FOR VIOLENT CRIME AND WHOSE LEADER IS FINANCED BY GEORGE SOROS, INDICATE THAT, WITHOUT DESCRIPTION, WITHOUT PROVING- SE WITHOUT DESCRIPTION. OLD AND COMPLETELY DISAPPOINTED (BY NUMEROUS OTHER PROSECUTORS!) FAIRYTALE, THE FAR & AWAY LEADING REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE AND FORMER PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, WILL BE ARRESTED TUESDAY OF NEXT WEEK. PROTEST, WE TAKE BACK OUR NATION!
Bragg is preparing to indict the GOP presidential candidate “for alleged hush money payments that Trump made as a 2016 presidential candidate” to porn star Stormy Daniels, Fox News reported.

“Here we go again: an outrageous abuse of power by a radical DA who lets violent criminals walk while pursuing political vendetta against President Trump,” McCarthy said on Twitter.
The House Speaker said, “I am directing the appropriate committees to immediately investigate whether federal funds are being used to subvert our democracy by interfering with elections with politically motivated prosecutions.”
On Saturday, Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, a Soros-backed district attorney, responded to reports of his office’s crackdown on the former president’s expected arrest. The prosecutor’s email was reported by Breanna Morello.
“Please know that your safety is our highest priority,” Bragg said. “We have full confidence in our outstanding security personnel and investigators, along with our great colleagues at the OCA and the NYPD, and we will continue to coordinate with all of them. We do not tolerate attempts to intimidate our office or threaten the rule of law in New York.”
Oklahomans are certainly a long way from Manhattan, New York. And on Saturday, they made their voices heard about their views on the former president.
