Former president spends evening with lawyers at Trump Tower

Donald Trump is due to appear in Manhattan Criminal Court on Tuesday on more than 30 charges related to hush money payments allegedly made to Stormy Daniels.

Trump is expected to spend the evening with his lawyers at Trump Tower as he prepares to become the first former US president to face criminal charges.

The former president will spend the night in his 58-story building before being booked with his fingerprints and other details. He will then appear in court for his arraignment, where he will plead not guilty.

Trump made one on Monday last minute change to his legal team with less than 24 hours to go before his arraignment.

He has appointed Todd Blanche, a leading criminal defense attorney, as his new lead attorney, sidelining Joe Tacopina, who appeared to publicly disagree with the former president in TV interviews.
