A Manhattan Grand Jury voted to indict former president Donald Trump on Thursday for alleged hush money payments prior to his 2016 election.
The payments in question include $130,000 to adult film actress Stormy Daniels and $150,000 to former Playboy model Karen McDougal, according to Fox News.
The office of District Attorney Alvin Braggs made a statement on Thursday night that Trump’s lawyers would be contacted to arrange a surrender.
Trump will turn himself in on Tuesday, according to one of his lawyers. His indictment will make him the first of any former or current president to be criminally charged.
Trump said in a Truth Social post on Thursday, “They only brought this Fake, Corrupt, and Disgraceful Charge against me because I stand with the American People, and they know that I cannot get a fair trial in New York!”
On March 18, Trump said that he would reportedly be arrested on March 21, but Braggs denied the allegation, reporting that Trump “created a false expectation” of his arrest.
While the official charges for Trump’s arrest are currently sealed, he could be facing numerous charges related to fraud.
Robert Costa, CBS News chief election and campaign correspondent, tweeted that Braggs "has some documents that have been uncovered during the probe but are not yet known to the public/been reported.”
Trump denied the hush money crime on social media following reports of his indictment, claiming it would be an “election interference.” Stormy Daniels reportedly denied both the affair and the hush money payment as well.
