According to sources close to Fox News Digital, the former president Donald Trump has not been officially informed if Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg intends to indict him or not. This information comes amid rumors of a potential impending indictment.
But, sources told Fox News that there is still a chance that Bragg will decide not to indict the former president.
At least one more witness is anticipated to testify before the grand jury when it meets in Manhattan on Wednesday at 2 p.m., according to numerous sources who spoke with Fox News. At now, it’s unknown who the witness or witnesses are.
The decisions made by the grand jury are made in secret, and until an arraignment, the indictment is usually kept under seal.
The moment an indictment is announced, Trump’s legal team will be informed. Trump’s lawyers would be entitled to start negotiating the conditions of a court appearance with the Manhattan district attorney’s office after being informed of an indictment.
According to a source who spoke to Fox News, an indictment could be announced as soon as this Wednesday and the earliest that Trump might appear in court if charged would be next week. The U.S. Secret Service and the New York Police Department would talk through the former president’s surrender plan if he were to be charged.

The potential charges are related to the $130,000 payment made to adult film star Stormy Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, by then-Trump attorney Michael Cohen in the weeks before the 2016 election in exchange for her silence on an alleged sexual encounter with Trump in 2006.
Although though Cohen named Trump in his plea agreement, federal prosecutors in the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York decided not to charge him in relation to the Stormy Daniels payment in 2019. In 2021, the Federal Election Commission also abandoned its inquiry on the situation.
According to Cohen, Trump ordered the payments. Using his own business, Cohen paid Daniels $130,000; he was then reimbursed by Trump’s business, which recorded the payments as “legal expenditures.” Former Playboy model Karen McDougal, who allegedly had a connection with Trump, received a $150,000 payment from the owner of the National Enquirer, a supermarket tabloid.
