The grand jury in Manhattan, called to rule on the allegations against the former president Donald Trump, is not expected to meet before the end of April. Jurors will consider another case next Monday and Wednesday before a previously scheduled two-week break, sources familiar with the matter cited by online newspaper The Hill said. However, according to the same sources, Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg could always change the schedule. Bragg is investigating Trump's involvement in an alleged secret payment of $130 that his dealer, Michael Cohen, allegedly made to porn star Stephanie Clifford, known by the stage name of Stormy Danielsbefore the 2016 election.
Trump had predicted that he would be arrested last week and in recent days he has returned to attack the prosecutor of "misconduct" for the investigation opened against him. Speaking to his supporters in Waco, Texas, at his first campaign rally, Trump said he was the victim of "a witch hunt" and "one sham investigation after another", and accused prosecutors - from him defined as "human scum" - to persecute him in the cases opened in New York, Washington and Atlanta. “This is really misconduct by the prosecutor. The innocence of people makes no difference to these radical leftist maniacs,” he told an enthusiastic crowd of his supporters. “The New York district attorney under the auspices and direction of the 'injustice department' in Washington i he is investigating something that is not a crime, not a misdemeanor, not a relationship,” Trump reiterated.
NYPD, along with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), launched an investigation into Trump last week after Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg's office received a letter containing death threats and an unidentified white powder. This was confirmed by anonymous sources to the broadcaster "Nbc News", after the recent news regarding a possible indictment of Donald Trump. The letter, which contained "a small amount" of white powder, would be addressed to Bragg. “Alvin: I will kill you,” reads the document. The police confirmed that there were no injuries, nor was it necessary to evacuate the building. According to the sources, the Manhattan prosecutor's office has received "several hundred threats" directed at Bragg in recent weeks. The New York police confirmed that the substance contained in the letter would not have been dangerous.
