(TargetLiberty.org) – The Manhattan grand jury is continuing to hear evidence in the investigation into former President Donald Trump’s role in the hush money payment allegedly made on his behalf to adult film star Stormy Daniels, and will no longer be expected to weigh in on the case on Thursday.
This latest push means that the grand jury’s next consideration of the case is set to take place on Monday which means that any possibility of Donald Trump being indicted is going to have to wait until then. It is common for grand juries to need to weigh in on more than one case when in session.
The jurors are still going to be hearing from additional witnesses in the case who are scheduled to testify next week.
Last Saturday, Trump had taken to his social media platform, Truth Social, to allege that he was going to be arrested in connection to the probe on Tuesday. However, he has not yet been notified of an indictment and the prosecutors informed the grand jurors that they would stay home on Wednesday.
Normally, the grand jury meets on three days, Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday.
At the same time, Trump has continued to claim that the investigation by Bragg is politically motivated. The case revolves around Trump reimbursing his former fixer Michael Cohen for a $130,000 hush payment made to Daniels before the 2016 presidential election in exchange for her silence over their alleged affair which had taken place years before. However, Trump has repeatedly denied the affair.
