A Manhattan grand jury is currently considering whether to indict former President Donald Trump over hush-money payments made during his 2016 presidential campaign.
If indicted, it would be an unprecedented moment in American history, the first criminal case against a former president.
Law enforcement officials are preparing for protests and potential violence following Trump's call for his supporters to protest ahead of a possible indictment.
An indictment could also exacerbate divisions within the Republican party regarding support for Trump in the 2024 presidential election.
