NEW YORK — Reporters started queuing outside Manhattan Criminal Court Monday for seats inside the courtroom where Donald Trump will be arraigned Tuesday — a full 24 hours ahead of the afternoon proceeding.
The mass of media was in stark contrast to the handful of Trump supporters protesting Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s probe of a hush money payment to a porn star.
By 5:00 p.m. Monday, nearly 50 representatives from outlets like CNN and the New York Law Journal were waiting for a coveted seat in the courtroom to witness the historic arraignment of the former president.
Under 60 passes are expected to be handed out at 8:00 a.m. Tuesday — meaning the members of the media will have to camp out overnight to get a seat. Trump’s arraignment is scheduled for 2:15 p.m., but he’s due to surrender to the Manhattan DA at the lower Manhattan courthouse around 11:00 a.m.
A judge will unseal the criminal indictment Tuesday on charges related to a 2016 payment to adult entertainer Stormy Daniels.
Outside Trump Tower in midtown Manhattan Tuesday afternoon, over 50 supporters of the former president gathered to welcome him back to New York. Trump is expected to spend the night in his penthouse at the famed skyscraper before leaving by motorcade for the court in the morning.
