(GoRealNewsNow.com) – BREAKING NEWS: A Manhattan grand jury investigating former President Donald Trump in the Stormy Daniels “hush money” case will take a break for the next month.
This pause was planned and will happen during the city’s school Spring Recess in April. The schedule might change, but the break is expected to last through Passover and Easter holidays.
This delay means that any possible charges against Trump, 76, related to the $130,000 payment made by his former lawyer, Michael Cohen, to Daniels before the 2016 election will be pushed back.
The payment was made to keep Daniels quiet about an alleged affair with Trump in 2006.
On March 18, Trump said on social media that he thought he would be arrested in three days and asked his supporters to protest and “TAKE OUR NATION BACK!”
His arrest did not happen, but it led to more donations to his 2024 Republican presidential campaign and an increase in his poll numbers.
According to the RealClearPolitics website, he now leads Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis by an average of 15.1 percentage points.
Trump also stirred controversy with a deleted social media post that threatened “death and destruction” if he were charged.
The post showed him holding a baseball bat aimed at Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg. Trump’s defense lawyer, Joe Tacopina, said the post was “ill-advised.”
The post was eventually deleted.
