Donald Trump indicted: Timeline of Tuesday arraignment and legal proceedings
Former President Donald Trump will have a packed schedule for his Tuesday arraignment in Manhattan surrounding charges related to 2016 hush money payments, making his way from Florida to New York
Because the indictment is sealed, there is much still unknown to the public about details surrounding the case. There's yet to be a formal announcement of the timeline for the grand jury's secret work into the case. It's also unclear why the charges are coming six years after the payoff and how prosecutors intend to get around the Empire State's statute of limitations, which are two years for misdemeanor offenses and five years for certain felony offenses.
"What will happen in the arraignment is he will enter a plea of not guilty, they will unseal the indictment against him, and we will become aware of what the charges actually are," Joshua Ritter, a former Los Angeles County deputy district attorney, told the Washington Examiner.
