Law enforcement officials tell CNN there are no credible threats in New York at this time, even though Tuesday is a “high alert day.”
Washington Metro Police are also preparing for protests, but U.S. Capitol Police “are not currently pursuing direct or credible threats to the U.S. Capitol,” notes a department intelligence assessment obtained by CNN.
NYPD is the nation’s largest police agency with approximately 36,000 current officers and 19,000 civilian employees. This week’s memo suggests all 36,000 officers are expected to be in uniform and on standby for Tuesday’s deployment.
Many lawmakers and politicians on both sides of the aisle have said nobody wants a repeat of January 6 – with Republicans claiming they don’t expect the demonstrations to turn violent but warning of a “political circus” over a possible indictment become.
On Monday afternoon, the NYPD met with US Secret Service and the Chief of Public Safety for state court officials.
Their session ended late Monday afternoon at NYPD headquarters with a decision to increase security around the courthouse beginning Tuesday morning, a law enforcement official told DailyMail.com.
However, the source said charges are not expected until Wednesday at the earliest and Trump is unlikely to arrive in New York until early next week.
“They had their meeting and discussed a whole bunch of things about how they’re going to put extra lighting out there, how they’re going to put more barriers out there and send their special operations teams inside,” the official said.
“The NYPD will do what they do when the United Nations comes to town, with increased security,” they added. “But they don’t even think it’s going to happen this week.”
“The impeachment can happen, but they don’t think Trump is coming this week. I’m told there is an additional witness who will testify on Wednesday, so if there is an indictment, it won’t happen until Wednesday or Thursday, so they think he’ll probably come next week.”
Donald Trump posted a video on Truth Social Monday night condemning the “witch hunt” against him. He said over the weekend he expects to be arrested on Tuesday, but a law enforcement source told DailyMail.com they don’t expect charges until Wednesday at the earliest

Trump has said he is the victim of a Daniels “Stormy “Horse Face” racketeering scheme and said he is being targeted in a series of “terrible Radical Left Democrats” investigations.
Daniels is also feeling the effects of Trump’s possible impending arrest.
Her attorney, Clark Brewster, told TMZ that Daniels had received “bad news” on social media and was taking extra safety precautions – although he didn’t share details for fear of tipping off anyone who might want to harm her.
Some public comments online include those calling the pornstar a “worthless lunatic” and a “degenerate prostitute” who they claim “should be in jail” for “extortion.”
Trump’s attorney said the former president continues to deny the substance of allegations of a sexual relationship with Stormy Daniels, calling the $130,000 hush money a “harassment payment” that wealthy or famous people sometimes use to make a distracting situation disappear

While the New York investigation is drawing to a conclusion, Trump faces a grand jury in Atlanta and a federal investigation in Washington, all of which pose a significant legal threat and the prospect of overturning a Republican presidential campaign in which Trump remains a leading contender.
The former president insisted he will remain in the 2024 presidential race even as he faces criminal charges in the ongoing investigation over his handling of White House documents and alleged vote-rigging in 2020.
