The process that could end what would be a historic criminal impeachment of former United States President Donald Trump has been delayed. This Wednesday, a grand jury session in Manhattan on whether charges should be filed to silence Stormy Daniels, the porn star who claims she had a sexual relationship with Trump before the 2016 presidential election, was dismissed.
This Wednesday’s new document, which was first reported by “Business Insider”, citing two anonymous sources, raises questions about the current case, which was never written in black and white, although Trump confirmed it on Saturday in his social media. network, which were arrested on Tuesday. And it is not even more certain that the impeachment will happen, which will open an unprecedented political and legal storm, since it involves a former president, but also a candidate seeking the 2024 Republican presidential nomination.
One of the two sources of ‘Insider’ also revealed the possibility that the grand jury convened by the Manhattan district attorney, Alvin Bragg, who is leading the investigation, may or may not meet on Thursday. And with the 23-member council meeting on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday (although not all are required), this would in any case be postponed until next week.
On Saturday, Trump, who takes advantage of the political and financial possibility of impeachment, called a congressional meeting in Waco (Texas).
There are many indications that the question still remains. Roncus reports anonymous sources that Bragg’s attorney’s office has contacted at least one of the witnesses who has already prepared to appear before the grand jury, in a secret proceeding, to testify more.
On Monday, they heard from Robert Costello, a lawyer who worked with Michael Cohen, a former Trump lawyer who made $130,000 in payments to Daniels, who publicly announced Trump’s direct order and influence the election, and who was later compensated by the former president. with forged documents such as legal payments. Trump’s defense has been using it solemnly to try to undermine Cohen’s credibility, even though in a grand jury action only the prosecution can cross-examine witnesses and cross-examine other lawyers.
With all the evidence and evidence cleared, the prosecution will tell the grand jury the members of the law and the details of the charges they are seeking. At least 16 of the 23 members who have seen the testimony and the presentation of the testimony must be present to vote and, if at least 12 vote, the vote must be tabled.
The impeachment, then with Trump’s lawyers to make him surrender (or request his arrest if he refused to surrender), would then enter uncharted territory in US history.
