INTERVIEW | Will Trump Be Arrested? Legal Expert Zack Smith Weighs In
Former President Donald Trump said over the weekend he expects to be arrested.
“WILL BE ARRESTED ON TUESDAY OF NEXT WEEK,” Trump wrote Saturday morning on his social media platform Truth Social, adding: “PROTEST, TAKE OUR NATION BACK!”
Trump’s comments come as Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg has been leading an investigation into supposed hush money payments made to porn star Stormy Daniels prior to the 2016 presidential election.
“We don’t really know a lot of the facts and information surrounding these charges,” Zack Smith, a legal fellow at The Heritage Foundation, says, adding “we have to wait and see” what will happen regarding a possible indictment of the former president. (The Daily Signal is the news outlet of The Heritage Foundation.)
For Bragg, “there’s certainly political implications to this investigation,” Smith said, going on to explain that Bragg “knows, as any of these local, left-leaning district attorneys know, if they were to indict Donald Trump, a former president, something that’s never been done before in the history of our nation, it would immediately catapult them onto the national stage.”
Smith joins “The Daily Signal Podcast” to explain what we do know about the investigations against Trump and what an indictment would mean for the former president, who is seeking a return to the Oval Office in 2025.
