Teri Kanefield gives us a very good description of what all this means and if Trump is indicted this week and that’s a big ‘if’...this is probably what will take place.
Excerpt from Teri’s link:
”In my experience, the prosecutor contacts the defense counsel (and Magistrate Judge), and a date is agreed to. The defendant then comes to the FBI field office (or Marshal’s office) on that day/time, and is photographed and fingerprinted. Law enforcement then brings the defendant to the Magistrate Judge’s court for the initial appearances, where the defense lawyer meets them. The Arraignment may happen at the same time. (These things vary based on the district.)
If indeed there will be an arrest and indictment this week, we are in for a bumpy ride. I’ve been warning people that indictments are just the beginning. There will be pre-trial motions, a nerve-wracking trial, and the judge may make rulings you don’t like. While this will move faster than civil proceedings, recall a prosecutor’s definition of “imminent.”
Meanwhile, between now and Tuesday, all we can do is engage in speculation, which is tiring and not productive.
I suggest instead (and to prepare for what may be coming) you take a break and curl up and relax and read a story.”
