BREAKING: Former President Donald Trump is facing multiple charges of falsifying business records, including at least one felony, AP sources say. https://t.co/LbA6WIEaz3

… He will be formally arrested and arraigned Tuesday in his hush money case, setting the scene for the historic, shocking moment when a former president is forced to stand before a judge to hear the criminal charges against him.
The indictment remained sealed and the specific charges were not immediately known, but details were confirmed by people who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss information that isn’t yet public.
The streets outside the courthouse where the arraignment will unfold were calm Friday compared with earlier in the week. There were no large-scale demonstrations for or against Trump, though tourists stopped to take selfies and throngs of reporters and police officers remained assembled.
When Trump turns himself in, he’ll be booked mostly like anyone else facing charges, mug shot, fingerprinting and all. But he isn’t expected to be put in handcuffs; he’ll have Secret Service protection and will almost certainly be released that same day…
The funny thing is that Trump seems to truly believe he’s still in charge of this whole game. That his truth social posts had cowed investigators into submission. He’s just…he’s just so fucking dumb. https://t.co/O1evryZq0V
