Barricades unloaded near Manhattan criminal court ahead of possible Trump indictment

March 20, 2023

Barricades arrived outside the Manhattan Criminal Court Monday morning as the city braces for potential charges against former President Trump, who warned over the weekend that he could be arrested as soon as Tuesday in relation to a hush-money probe. Workers were seen unloading steel barricades from a New York Police Department truck, stacking them outside the courthouse and the Manhattan District Attorney’s offices in lower Manhattan. The Manhattan District Attorney’s office declined to comment on Trump’s claims about the possible arrest. Trump has bashed the Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg and his office as the case continues. The Hill has reached out to NYPD and the Manhattan District Attorney’s office about the barricades.
