After leaked reports that President Donald J. Trump would be arrested on Tuesday, Trump went on offense and went on his social media to tell his supporters to protest.
After a week of outrage, we find out Monday morning it all might have been somewhat of a prank.
“THE FAR & AWAY LEADING REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE AND FORMER PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, WILL BE ARRESTED ON TUESDAY OF NEXT WEEK. PROTEST, TAKE OUR NATION BACK!” Trump, a Presidential candidate, posted on Truth Social.
And then the news cycle became obsessed with the topic, stirring up enough anger and frustration that a protest did break out over the weekend, and the media of course used the occasion to smear Trump and his supporters in the process.
US Rep Elise Steffanik responded to the news and released a statement denouncing the leak and the potential arrest:

The Baltimore Sun, gleefully, reported the details of what would happen to Trump, early Monday morning of the details of what would happen to Trump if he was arrested:
“He would be fingerprinted. He would be photographed. He could even be handcuffed.
And if Donald Trump is indicted by a Manhattan grand jury in the days ahead for his role in a hush money payment to a porn star, the former president of the United States of America will be read the standard Miranda warning: He will be told that he has the right to remain silent and the right to an attorney.”
These are among the routine steps for felony arrests in New York. But the unprecedented arrest of a former commander in chief — one whose devoted supporters once staged a violent attack on the Capitol — will be anything but routine.
Last week, senior officials from the district attorney’s office and the state agency that runs the courts had preliminary discussions to plan for a possible indictment and arraignment. So did officials from the Police Department, which patrols the streets outside the lower Manhattan courthouse, and the court officers, who handle security inside the Criminal Courts Building, where Trump would be arraigned.
That meeting followed a call from Trump himself, in a post on his site Truth Social on Saturday morning: “PROTEST,” he exhorted his supporters. “TAKE OUR NATION BACK!”
Some supporters listened:
Trump Tower, New York City.

It is all very confusing – Because the arrest doesn’t actually seem to be cemented in stone.
Independent media saw it all unfold in a different way than the mainstream media reported and noticed a twist in the story that the MSM wasn’t covering – that there was still one more witness to go before an indictment could be handed down.
So was the leak a fake leak?
“The American people force-fed liberal garbage for another entire weekend. We’ll never get this time back. The monsters on the now-communist left dropped the news on Saturday that they will be arresting President Trump on Tuesday,” Joe Hoft wrote about the topic.
Robert Spencer at PJMedia reported on the details:
Donald Trump announced on Saturday morning that he would be arrested on Tuesday, and the nation has been agog at the prospect of the Leftist establishment crossing the rubicon of arresting its principal opponent on flimsy charges and demonstrating before the entire world that the American republic is now the American banana republic, in which foes of the regime can expect the full weight of corrupt government authority pushing back against them for daring to dissent.
But now it turns out that the Manhattan district attorney’s office, which has Trump in its sights, just may be stepping back from the brink: Business Insider reported Saturday night that Trump’s indictment is “on hold” until one more witness testifies Monday afternoon.
That’s about all that has come to light, as the relevant authorities are being quite closemouthed about this whole thing. Insider says that “a source with knowledge of the investigation” told them on Saturday night “there is one more witness.” The indictment is apparently not a certainty until this witness testifies.
But who is this witness? The Insider’s source wouldn’t say, and so all that we’re told is that “a separate source, who also spoke on condition of anonymity, told Insider that the witness is not Allen Weisselberg, Trump’s former CFO, who is serving a five-month sentence for admittedly masterminding a payroll tax-dodge scheme at the Trump Organization.”
This may have changed but the corrupt Biden family is still criminally corrupt.

As Americans and the media chime in about what could happen as a result of Trump being arrested this week, it is unclear if that is really even a possibility.
What is clear is that America deserves better.
Americans have been scammed by our government and our media for so long, all of it makes a Trump presidency look less like a crazy rollercoaster and more like a calm walk in paradise.
America First policies and Trump’s defense of us as Americans would be a welcomed change from this Democrat-made RINO-enabled chaos.
