At least one felony charge will be lodged against former president Donald Trump in the indictment issued by a New York City grand jury.

According to the Associated Press, Trump is charged with falsifying business records. Increased security has been planned for Tuesday’s formal arrest and arraignment, but no major demonstrations or protests have emerged or appear to be planned.

Trump’s defense is expected to be that the prosecution is politically motivated, which Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg denies, calling such allegations “inflammatory accusations.”
