Trump lawyer says ex-president will not be handcuffed
Former US president Donald Trump will not be handcuffed when he surrenders next week in New York to face criminal charges, his defence lawyer Joe Tacopina says.
Susan Necheles, another Trump lawyer, said the former president will plead not guilty.
Tacopina said that while Trump was not expected to be cuffed, he likely would be fingerprinted and undergo other routine protocols when going to court on Tuesday to face charges in an indictment handed down by a grand jury probing a hush-money payment to porn star Stormy Daniels during Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign.
“I don’t know how all this is going to go down,” Tacopina cautioned in an interview.
