Secret Service Meets With NY Jail Officials Ahead of Potential Trump ‘Guilty’ Verdict

Secret Service agents have reportedly met with jail authorities in New York City to prepare for a potential conviction in Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s so-called “hush money” case.

According to a source at the New York Department of Corrections, preparations are ongoing as the trial nears its conclusion.

A ruling might be issued as early as this week.

CBS reported that prison officials will be in charge of protecting any Secret Service agents charged with defending Trump if he is jailed.

While the site of Trump’s prospective imprisonment is unknown, shorter terms can be served at the notorious Rikers Island prison, which has a special section for high-profile convicts.

Bragg has charged Trump with 34 criminal offenses in a case that has been torn to shreds by dozens of prominent law scholars since its announcement last year.

The Manhattan D.A.’s office, ostensibly coordinating with the Biden justice department through former DOJ attorney Matthew Colangelo, then elevated the accusation to a felony, claiming a purported “conspiracy” to commit another crime.

Bragg has never disclosed the additional crime, despite more than a month of court hearings.

“There is reasonable doubt all over this case,” said former prosecutor Randy Zelin on CNN.

“Anytime a human being needs to make an important decision in life, if you have enough information, you go ahead. If not, you seek more—that’s reasonable doubt,” he added.

“How did Michael Cohen get away with stealing $30,000… and make $4 million from this? He thought he’d be chief of staff; he’s a fixer. If the plumber comes to my house to fix my leak, I could be home. That doesn’t mean I know how he’s doing it and what it’s taking to be fixed. Stormy Daniels—let’s hold a pity party for her,” the attorney continued.

George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley also slammed the case in an X post on Tuesday.

“Before the jury entered, the judge told the parties not to go into the law, ‘that will be my job.’ That is precisely what worries many of us. Merchan has proven a minimalist judge giving the defendant the bare minimum of protections at every turn,” Turley said.

“The fraud instruction alone is so generalized that it would seem to encompass any claim that the defendant sought to influence the election through his actions.

“Merchan has done little to tailor standard instructions for this novel and frankly troubling case,” he continued.

Trump faces more than 134 years behind bars if he is found “guilty” in the case.
