Local, State and Federal Law Enforcement and Security Brace for the Possibility of Former President Donald Trump’s Impeachment as soon as next weekaccording to five senior officials familiar with the preparations.
Law enforcement agencies are conducting preliminary security assessments, officials say, and are discussing possible security plans in and around the Manhattan Criminal Court at 100 Center Street in the event that former President Trump is indicted in connection with a alleged secret money payment to Stormy Daniels and travels to New York to face charges.
Officials stress that interagency talks and planning are precautionary in nature because no charges have been filed.
Agencies involved include the NYPD, New York State court officials, the US Secret Service, the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force, and the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office, officials say.
NBC News has reached out to all of those agencies for comment, and all have declined to comment.
