Trump’s lawyers say he will surrender to avoid arrest on the indictment. It was a cover-up, pure and simple, to conceal the true nature of the payments, and a felony violation of the federal campaign finance laws. Trump was invited to waive immunity and appear before Bragg’s grand jury, an invitation only issued to targets before indictment. Does it have to be a New York crime or would a federal crime suffice? Trump’s first indictment will likely not be federal.
