Law enforcement agencies have already begun preparations to arrest former President Donald Trump sometime in the coming week (as of this writing). That came after the Manhattan District Attorney resurrected a questionable case involving a hush money payment sent to Stormy Daniel.
This is highly politicized motivation behind the never-before-tested legal theory being trotted out by prosecutors, which supposes that the misdemeanor charge can be upgraded to a felony, bypassing the statute of limitations and putting jail time on the table.
Now, Trump has put out a statement that confirms he will be arrested on Tuesday.
