Don’t worry, I’ll be showing up for my indictment on Tuesday

Donald Trump has outlined his travel plans ahead of his impending indictment and confirmed Sunday night that he will leave Mar-A-Lago, his Florida home, on Monday and make his way to Trump Tower in New York.

The next morning, the former president says, he will appear at a Manhattan courthouse, where he is expected to be arraigned, fingerprinted and photographed after a grand jury ruled he was nominated for his role in a hush-money payment to porn star Stormy charge Daniels.

Trump went to Truth Social on Sunday night to confirm his travel plans, writing, “I will be leaving Mar-a-Lago at 12 noon Monday and going to Trump Tower in New York. On Tuesday morning, believe it or not, I’m going to the courthouse. America shouldn’t be like this!”

Trump attorney Joe Tacopina, who made the rounds of various media outlets over the weekend, previously said CNN‘s State of the Union broadcast that “everything is still up in the air on Tuesday apart from the fact that we’re going to say very loudly and proudly Not guilty.Hopefully this will be as painless and stylish as possible for a situation like this.”

Tacopina told CNN his team has yet to see the indictment, which remains classified.

“We will file the charges. We will dissect it. The team will look at any potential issue that we can challenge and we will challenge it and of course I fully expect a motion to dismiss will be filed as there is no law that fits that.”

Tacopina further described Trump as “preparing for a fight” and “a tough guy, someone who’s ready for this fight.” Sunday to ABC’s This week with George Stephanopoulos.

In a subsequent follow-up post Sunday night, Trump stepped up his attacks on Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg. The note appears to corroborate previous reports that Trump had told advisers he planned to “escalate” attacks on Bragg, the prosecutor who revived the Stormy Daniels case.

“The corrupt prosecutor has no case,” Trump wrote, claiming he remains a victim of the investigation.

He continued, “What he has is a place where it’s IMPOSSIBLE for me to get a fair trial (it needs to change!) . The DOJ is also working in the DA’s office – unprecedented!”

Speaking to NBC News Meet the press On Sunday, former Manhattan District Attorney who launched the initial investigation into Trump, Cyrus Vance Jr., warned the former president not to escalate criticism of Bragg.

“I have to say I was disturbed to hear the former President speak the way he spoke about the District Attorney, [Alvin] Bragg and even in the trial court this past week,” Vance said.

“And I think if I were his lawyer – and believe me no one called me for advice – I would be careful not to commit any other offense like obstructing government administration, interfering or by threat or otherwise the activity of the government.”

Following his indictment on Tuesday, Trump plans to deliver a speech in Mar-A-Lago at 8:15 p.m. local time.

Hours earlier, Trump had asked Truth Social supporters to solicit campaign funds ahead of the 2024 presidential campaign — while bragging that he was not for sale.

“We’re now officially a third world country,” Trump says in the video, echoing comments he made in 2020 after losing the election.

“It’s very simple. They can’t buy me and they can’t control me and that scares them tremendously,” he continues.

Trump then solicits contributions – but ensures his supporters are exempt if they are “feeling bad over Biden’s disastrous policies.”

A grand jury on Thursday voted to indict Trump over his role in paying hush money to porn star Stormy Daniels – the first time a former US president has faced serious criminal charges. Don’t worry, I’ll be showing up for my indictment on Tuesday
