(NewsGlobal.com)- The grand jury session scheduled for Wednesday in the probe into the alleged hush money payment to Stormy Daniels was postponed by the Manhattan District Attorney’s office, the Associated Press reported.
Grand jurors were told to be on standby for Thursday, but no reason was given for the postponement, according to sources.
While Wednesday’s witness was not known given the secrecy of a grand jury probe, it is believed that the witness would rebut the testimony given on Monday by someone more favorable to former President Trump.
Meanwhile, a source within the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office told the New York Post that some prosecutors are “shaking their heads” at Bragg’s decision to pursue a case against the former president.
According to Fox News, sources said that there is “major dissension” within the District Attorney’s Office among those who believe District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s case against Trump is weak.
According to the sources, there is still a possibility that Alvin Bragg will choose not to indict Trump.
The Associated Press reported that Thursday’s grand jury session turned to “other matters,” and it is not clear if prosecutors plan to call more witnesses next week or when the grand jury might vote on whether to indict Trump.
The delay in further testimony has raised suspicions that the investigation may have stalled.
On Thursday, the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office rebuffed the request from House Republicans for records on the investigation into Trump, with general counsel to District Attorney Alvin Bragg calling the request an “unlawful incursion into New York’s sovereignty.”
In the letter to Republican lawmakers, general counsel Leslie Dudek said that the former president “created a false expectation” that he would be arrested on Tuesday. Dudek reiterated that the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office is obligated to maintain the secrecy of the grand jury probe.
