NY officials ready security in case of Trump indictment
Law enforcement officials in New York are making security preparations for the possibility that former US president Donald Trump could be indicted in the coming weeks and appear in a Manhattan courtroom in an investigation examining hush money paid to women who alleged sexual encounters with him.
There has been no public announcement of any timeframe for the grand jury’s secret work, including any potential vote on whether to indict him.
The law enforcement officials, who were not authorised to speak publicly and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity, said authorities are just preparing in case of an indictment.
They described the conversations as preliminary and are considering security, planning and the practicalities of a potential court appearance by a former president.
