Trump Grand Jury Vote Unlikely This Week as Meeting Cancelled for Wednesday

The grand jury investigation into former President Donald Trump’s alleged involvement in a hush-money payment to a porn star has been a source of speculation and scrutiny in recent months. The investigation, which seeks to find potential criminal charges related to bookkeeping on a 2016 election-eve payment of $130,000 to porn actress Stormy Daniels, has been ongoing for over a year, and many are eagerly awaiting its conclusion.

However, reports indicate that the grand jury will not meet on Wednesday, and a potential indictment of Trump is unlikely to occur before the weekend, if at all. While the cause of the delay is unknown, sources suggest that Robert Costello’s grand jury testimony on Monday may be behind it.

Despite the delay, Trump remains in the public eye and is expected to attend the Lincoln Regan Dinner on April 21, 2023, in Southwest Florida. The former president’s appearance at the event is sure to draw attention, particularly in light of the ongoing investigations into his alleged wrongdoing.

The investigation has been a contentious topic, with Trump and his allies criticizing it as politically motivated. However, a Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll found that a large majority of Americans find it believable that he paid hush money to a porn star.

While the investigation has yet to produce any concrete charges, its potential impact is significant. If charges were filed, Trump would have to travel to New York from his Florida home for a mug shot and fingerprinting. Security officials are bracing for possible unrest, but so far few of Trump’s supporters have heeded his call for protests.

Despite the uncertainty surrounding the investigation, one thing is clear: Trump remains a polarizing figure, with many passionately for or against him. As the investigation continues, it will undoubtedly be a topic of much discussion and debate.
