Trump indicted, countdown to hearing in Manhattan

The former president will speak Tuesday evening from Mar-a-Lago. Former prosecutor Vance: “Do not commit other crimes with his statements”

Former US President Donald Trump will speak from his Mar-a-Lago resort on Tuesday evening after an anticipated court hearing in Manhattan later that day. The Hill reports it, specifying that the former president should speak from Mar-a-Lago around 20.15 local time. Trump has been indicted in the Stormy Daniels case.

Former Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance, who has investigated Trump in the past, said the former White House tenant’s statements about current District Attorney Alvin Bragg – who indicted him – have the potential to strengthen the case. legal charge against him.

“I have to say, I was disturbed to hear the former president talk the way he talked about District Attorney Bragg and even the courthouse last week,” Vance said in an interview with NBC’s “Meet The Press” Sunday.

“I think if I were his lawyer – and, believe me, no one called to ask for my advice – I would be concerned about committing some other offense such as obstruction of government administration, which is to interfere with – by threat or otherwise – the operation of the government”.
