The Big Apple is ready to batten down the hatches and mobilize 700 riot cops ahead of former President Donald Trump's anticipated arrest early this week.

State, city and federal law enforcement agencies have been meeting in recent weeks to discuss how to deal with expected widespread protests following Trump's arrest, as his supporters have already started descending on Trump Tower.

The New York Police Department is even considering stationing hundreds of riot cops, the Daily Beast reports, fearing that Trump's arrest may cause both MAGA conservatives and anti-Trump protesters to face off outside Manhattan Criminal Court as he is arraigned.

Quote
And Secret Service agents in charge of Trump's detail in South Florida, as well as those in New York, are said to be coordinating how they will get Trump into the District Attorney's office through the crowds of protesters and the media.

My question remains - what if Trump just stayed in Florida?

Since when is this ahole actually concerned about the rule of law in New York?

OH.................... since he's targeting a white conservative. That's when he's worried about the rule of law.

I'm pretty over Trump and not planning on voting for him. This may change that. Likewise, on good ol J6 I was at both of my jobs. Someday we'll have a real insurrection and as it goes, it won't be televised. Be much uglier. This indian might go off the reservation.

I voted for Trump twice, but I certainly didn't worship the ground he walks on. If he's the GOP nominee, I'll certainly vote for him again, as the democrat nominee is GUARANTEED to be far worse in every respect. As for J6 I didn't even know something was going on - make that had gone on - in Washington until I tuned in to the evening news. The ruckus wasn't loud enough to be audible down here in Texas.  ;)
Trump won in 2016. Democrats haven't been so offended since Republicans came along and freed their slaves.

I wish Trump would go away for good.

Arresting him is the best gift anyone could give him. 

I wonder if the left realizes that.

    DeSantis is a fraud who has remained silent as Donald Trump, the man he used to advance his political career, is being persecuted.

    Many other Republicans from @SpeakerMcCarthy & @VivekGRamaswamy to even Mike Pence have spoken out about this.

I would have preferred DeSantis stay mum about what Trump supposedly did, as that is just a pretext for ever-Trumpers to screech that he is attacking The Chosen. I do like the second half, though.

Yup, because now it has Trump saying some stuff as "payback" trying to allude to DeSantis being a gay pedo.

I heard they did that in 2016 thinking he was the weakest candidate.  Maybe some think that about 2024 as well.

So I guess this is a big fizzle. Apparently it was 90% reporters and 10% "protestors" in front of the courthouse yesterday.

I continue to wonder if this was a PR thing for either Trump or Bragg.

NYC putting all police on standby

Quote
Washington Metro police are also preparing for protests, but the U.S. Capitol Police 'is not currently tracking any direct or credible threats to the US Capitol,' a department intelligence assessment obtained by CNN notes.

NYPD is the largest police department in the country, with roughly 36,000 current officers and 19,000 civilian employees. The memo this week suggests that all 36,000 officers are expected to be in uniform and on standby for deployment on Tuesday.

I would love to see a full on SWAT takedown arrest at Trump Towers.
That would show the peons whose in charge for sure.

If Trump were to be taken into custody, wouldn't he still have Secret Service protection 24/7 like all ex-Presidents get?

When even Michael Avenatti says this a BS case you know it's a BS case.

@MichaelAvenatti
There are many critical facts and pieces of evidence (texts, emails, etc.) relating to the hush money scandal that have yet to see the light of day. And they will unfortunately be very damaging to the prosecution if Trump stands trial. At this point, you simply can't build a case on the testimony of Cohen & Daniels
https://twitter.com/i/web/status/1636585933108826112

For those who don't remember he was Stormy Daniels lawyer in the lawsuits filed against Trump

When even Michael Avenatti says case against Trump is weak and will fail? WOW! No really, he said it!

So are we doing this or what?  I took off work, but it's hot and my plate carrier keeps chafing on my Hawaiian shirt.  The door guard over there at the court house keeps waving me in to get some AC but I don't want to miss the protests.

There will be no arraignment this week,' a source familiar with the proceedings told DailyMail.com exclusively on Tuesday.

The former president, who is currently in Florida, is expected to be formally charged tomorrow, after which the Manhattan District Attorney's office will reach out to Trump and his Secret Service detail to make arrangements for his surrender, according to the insider.

EXCLUSIVE: 'Trump will NOT be arraigned this week.' Former president is expected to be indicted tomorrow and Secret Service will make plans for his surrender and appearance in New York court NEXT WEEK
