It looks like there might be some serious weight to the rumors flying around about former President Donald Trump being arrested and indicted this week concerning the alleged “hush money” payment he made to porn star Stormy Daniels, as barriers were erected on Monday outside of the New York City courthouse where the case is being heard.
Add to that the fact that the former president made a statement over the weekend about potentially being arrested on Tuesday at the behest of radical liberal Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg. Video footage reveals men unloading metal barriers outside of the courthouse as the jury inside continues to hear testimony in the Daniels case.

“Over the weekend, Trump announced on Truth Social he expects to be arrested this week, citing ‘illegal leaks from a corrupt & highly political Manhattan District Attorney’s office,'” Breitbart reported.
“…WHICH HAS ALLOWED NEW RECORDS TO BE SET IN VIOLENT CRIME & WHOSE LEADER IS FUNDED BY GEORGE SOROS, INDICATE THAT, WITH NO CRIME BEING ABLE TO BE PROVEN, & BASED ON AN OLD & FULLY DEBUNKED (BY NUMEROUS OTHER PROSECUTORS!) FAIRYTALE, THE FAR & AWAY LEADING REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE & FORMER PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, WILL BE ARRESTED ON TUESDAY OF NEXT WEEK. PROTEST, TAKE OUR NATION BACK!” he continued.
Breitbart continued, “The announcement sent a shockwave throughout the political world, and several high-profile Republicans are now publicly defending Trump and demanding equal justice under the law.”
“It reeks of the kind of political prosecution that that we endured back in the days of the Russia hoax and the whole impeachment over a phone call. And one thing I know is — I know that former President Trump can take care of himself,” former Vice President Mike Pence said Breitbart News Saturday after the news came out.
Here’s what others are saying about the ordeal:
Here we go again — an outrageous abuse of power by a radical DA who lets violent criminals walk as he pursues political vengeance against President Trump.
I’m directing relevant committees to immediately investigate if federal funds are being used to subvert our democracy by…

🚨The reported upcoming arrest of President Trump by hyper partisan Soros prosecutor Alvin Bragg is some Third World Banana Republic lunacy and a very, very dangerous road to go down. 🧵

The Democrats have turned the powers of government against their political enemies – they must be stopped or they will soon ruin our country permanently.
They are out of control – and have ushered in chaos on our streets, in the economy, and in the world. https://t.co/TwY4x84AKn

If they can come for Trump, they will come for you.
This type of stuff only occurs in third world authoritarian nations.

“Meanwhile, Republicans on top House investigative committees, including Judiciary Committee chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH), are requesting testimony from Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, warning him that these reports of a looming indictment, if true, ‘erode confidence in the evenhanded application of justice and unalterably interfere in the course of the 2024 presidential election,'” the report continued.
“In light of the serious consequences of your actions, we expect that you will testify about what plainly appears to be a politically motivated prosecutorial decision,” they said.

Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis, who many believe is currently mulling over the idea of tossing his hat into the ring for president, came out and slammed the district attorney prosecuting the former president, saying that his office will not get involved with a “manufactured circus by some Soros [backed] DA.”
The radical left is clearly attempting to put a stop to Trump’s 2024 presidential campaign, which was announced not long after the midterm election in November. It’s amazing the lengths they will go to in order to destroy him.
It seems Democrats are convinced that the Republican Party doesn’t have anyone else they can run in place of Trump, so if they beat him, they think it will be an automatic victory for Joe Biden’s reelection efforts. This, of course, is wrong. Very wrong.
