( – This week, the possibility of former president Donald Trump being indicted has led to lawmakers in Capitol hill preparing for what could turn out to be the first indictment of a former U.S. president in history.

Over this past weekend, Trump alleged that he would be arrested on Tuesday in connection to the Manhattan district attorney’s probe into the hush money that was allegedly paid to adult film star Stormy Daniels prior to the 2016 election. This further fueled the speculations that New York City prosecutors were reaching the end of the investigation.

In his post on Truth Social, Trump also called for his supporters to protest and “TAKE OUR NATION BACK.” This call has led to many being concerned about the similarities between this call and his previous call which ultimately led to Jan. 6, 2021.

Only hours after Trump’s post, Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) said that there needed to be a review of what federal funds might have potentially been used as part of this probe. He further wrote on Twitter that this was “an outrageous abuse of power by a radical DA” who is focused on an investigation against Trump while letting crime run rampant in the city. He further added that he had discussed with Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), chair of the Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government, the matter and commented that there would be action coming from their side regarding the probe.

On Sunday, McCarthy also tried to maintain the peace by calling on Trump’s followers to not protest and instead stated that Trump just wanted people to be informed about everything going on.
