Trump Heads to New York for 'Unprecedented' Arraignment

Former President Donald Trump (Charisma News archives)

Former President Donald Trump is flying to New York Monday in preparation for his arraignment at a Manhattan courthouse Tuesday.

The former president is facing more than 30 charges related to an alleged hush money payment before the 2016 election.

The arraignment is scheduled for 2:15 Tuesday afternoon at the district court.

"You know, this is unprecedented. I don't know. I've done a million arraignments in that courthouse with celebrities and whatnot, but this a whole different thing," Tacopina explained. "We have Secret Service involved. I understand they're closing the courthouse for the afternoon. I just don't know what to expect. Hopefully, what I hope is that we get in and out of there as quickly as possible.

"That at the end of the day, it's a typical arraignment where we stand before the judge. We say 'not guilty.' We set schedules to file motions and whatnot or discovery and we move forward and get out of there," he added.

President Trump is expected to fly back to Florida, where he'll make a public address from his Mar-a-Lago home Tuesday night.

March CM CoverMark Caleb Smith, Ph.D. is the director of the Center for Political Studies at Cedarville University in Cedarville, Ohio.

Smith answered a question on a lot of voters' minds, would a conviction prevent Trump from running for president in 2024?

"No, it would not," Smith said.
