A source familiar with the proceedings has revealed that the Manhattan grand jury investigating Donald Trump’s alleged involvement in a hush money payment to a porn star is not expected to hear any evidence in the case for the next month due to a previously scheduled hiatus.

This delay could result in any indictment of the former president being postponed until late April at the earliest, although the grand jury’s timetable may be subject to change, Politico reported.

While the Manhattan district attorney’s office has not called the panel to convene on certain days in recent weeks, District Attorney Alvin Bragg has the authority to request the grand jury to reconvene during pre-scheduled breaks if the prosecutors wish to do so.

According to the same source, the grand jury that heard testimonies in the Trump case on Monday will not convene on Wednesday, but is slated to review evidence for an unrelated case on Thursday.

The grand jury’s regular meeting days are on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, and it is scheduled to review another case next week on Monday and Wednesday.

However, the grand jury will not convene on Thursday due to the Passover holiday, as reported by Politico.

As per the same source, the next two weeks have been scheduled as a hiatus since the grand jury’s first convocation in January.

The spokesperson for the Manhattan district attorney’s office refused to provide any comment regarding this matter.
