Potential Trump indictment pushed, as grand jury hears unrelated case
By Erica Orden,
NEW YORK — The Manhattan grand jury hearing evidence in the criminal investigation of Donald Trump’s alleged role in hush money payment to Stormy Daniels is evaluating an unrelated case Thursday, according to a person familiar with the matter, making any potential indictment of the former president unlikely before next week.
It wasn’t immediately clear why the grand jury wouldn’t hear evidence in the Trump case on Thursday.
Though there is no official timeline or deadline for bringing an indictment against Trump, grand jury activity appeared to accelerate in recent weeks, with a parade of witnesses. The Manhattan district attorney’s office led by Alvin Bragg also invited Trump to speak to the grand jury, a step that typically indicates the investigation is in its final stages. Trump declined the invitation.
