Manhattan DA braces for protests as Trump says he will be arrested on Tuesday – NBC Chicago

Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg sought to reassure his staff in an internal message on Saturday that intimidation or threats against them would not be tolerated. The communication comes as his office moves forward with its investigation of former President Donald Trump, who said he believed he would be arrested on Tuesday and appealed to his supporters to protest.

“Know that your safety is our top priority,” Bragg said in a memo to bureau staff obtained by NBC News from a senior Manhattan district attorney’s office official.

The Democratic-led House Ways and Means Committee released six years of tax returns for former President Donald Trump, including nearly 6,000 pages of personal and business tax records.

He added, “We do not condone attempts by our office to intimidate or threaten the rule of law in New York.”

The letter, which was first reported by Politico, did not mention Trump by name and only referred to “an ongoing investigation by this office.”

Trump is under investigation by Bragg’s office over a silent payment made to adult video artist Stormy Daniels during his first presidential campaign.
