Report: Trump to Be Charged Tuesday with 34 Felony Counts – No Handcuffs, No Mug Shot

Former President Trump was hit with 34 felony counts for falsification of business records, according to a leak to Michael Isikoff.

Trump will not be handcuffed and there will be no mug shot, according to Yahoo’s Isikoff.

Yahoo reported:

Donald Trump will be placed under arrest on Tuesday and informed that he has been charged with 34 felony counts for falsification of business records, according to a source who has been briefed on the procedures for the arraignment of the former president.

A New York City Police arrest report summarizing the charges against Trump will then be prepared and entered into the court system before he is led into a courtroom to be formally arraigned on the charges, none of which are misdemeanors.

But, the source said, Trump will not be put in handcuffs, placed in a jail cell or subjected to a mug shot — typical procedures even for white-collar defendants until a judge has weighed in on pretrial conditions. Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s office, which has been consulting with the Secret Service and New York City court officials, concluded that there was no reason to subject the former president to handcuffs or a mug shot.

The stated reason for handcuffing defendants is on the grounds that the suspect might be a flight risk or a threat to the district attorney or court personnel, neither of which were judged to be relevant to the handling of a former president protected at all times by a phalanx of Secret Service agents.

Trump landed at New York’s LaGuardia Airport in Queens on Monday afternoon.

He will spend the night at Trump Tower New York and will show up to court for his arraignment on Tuesday at 2:15 pm ET.

Trump’s lawyers will immediately file a motion to dismiss after they have the opportunity to review the indictment.

    It is not up to the public to offer their conjecture concerning the guilt or not of President Trump. He is innocent until PROVEN guilty in a court of law. We should be concerned about the way this has been handled and the continuing evidence of election interference that is emerging from this unnecessary ridiculous charge. It appears that the only thing Donald Trump is guilty of is he is running for reelection. The bottom line is he is the only one standing between us and a weaponized system of justice. We will be next if this isn’t met head on and stopped.
