Manhattan Grand Jury Investigating Donald Trump To Take Break Until April
A Manhattan grand jury will not meet until late April to review evidence in the hush money investigation into former President Donald Trump.
Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg has been investigating alleged hush money payments of $130,000 made by Trump to adult film star Stormy Daniels.
The grand jury will hear evidence on two other cases on Monday and Wednesday before a two-week hiatus.
Bragg does have the power as Attorney General to change the schedule, but that remains unlikely.

Bragg’s office’s recent moves suggested criminal complaints would be filed against the former President.
Trump predicted he would be arrested last week, calling protestors to swarm Manhattan district courts in his defense. It appears any arrest of Trump will not happen for at least a month.
Trump took to Truth Social in a scathing post with a threatening baseball bat, a move that some lawyers believe may put him in further legal jeopardy.
Trump’s lawyers said the break is a good sign criminal complaints won’t be filed.
“They are bringing repeat witnesses in and it appears the grand jury is not having it. It is not normal to take a three-week break when you are up against a statute of limitations,” Trump’s lawyer, Alina Habba, said in a statement.
