According to the outlet, after finding out that the grand jury will not hear evidence the rest of the week, Trump's attorney Joe Tacopina is hopeful that the Manhattan District Attorney's Office is reconsidering filing criminal charges.
Tacopina told the Daily Mail, “Everyone, from the left to the right, in the middle, are saying this case should not be brought. It should not because there is absolutely no crime. The law makes that clear.”
"And you do not indict a president for the first time in this country’s history on a case that will never make it to the finish line," he continued.
Tacopina added, "I am hopeful that the DA’s office is cognizant of that and that they will not simply seek to charge President Trump because DA Bragg’s financiers are baying for his scalp. It would be the greatest form of injustice and would destroy the rule of law."
On Monday, the grand jury convened to hear testimony from Trump’s longtime friend and the former chief executive of The National Enquirer’s of the parent company David Pecker.
This marked the first time the jury had convened for the case in a week. Last week, Trump had hinted at a possible indictment and arrest but it never came to fruition.
During a rally in Waco, Texas on Saturday, Trump implied that the Soros funded Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg was pursuing this case because of pressure coming out of Washington, DC. He also mentioned that the justice system has been weaponized against him.
Now, the earliest any potential criminal charges against the former president could be voted on is next week. Previously, the Wall Street Journal reported that as a result of the grand jury's process is being conducted in secret, Bragg has yet to provide a timeline for the case.
