The Manhattan district attorney in charge of the political hunt into President Donald Trump reportedly “canceled” the grand jury meeting planned for Wednesday, postponing the president’s potential indictment even further.

Two sources informed Fox News that the Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s office “canceled” the grand jury’s scheduled hearing on Wednesday, where the grand jury was slated to hear testimony from one more witness before considering whether to indict President Trump in the Stormy Daniels case.

The Manhattan district attorney’s office has not yet officially stated why the grand jury was canceled, but according to the two individuals, there was a “major dissension” with the prosecutor’s office.

Furthermore, an insider told Fox News that because of the “weakness” of the case, District Attorney Alvin Bragg is failing to persuade the grand jury of wrongdoing.

An indictment was anticipated Wednesday, according to RSBN, after a law enforcement source told Fox News that Bragg would probably arraign President Trump next week.

This new development, however, may have significant repercussions for whether or not an indictment will be issued, as a source tells Fox News that Trump has not been officially notified that charges will be formally brought against him.

The grand jury was placed “on standby” for Thursday, a source confirmed to the outlet.
