Trump takes off for Waco as GOP figures rally Texas crowd – follow live


How Stormy Daniels might lead to Donald Trump’s first charges

Donald Trump is set to speak at a rally on Saturday as a grand jury in New York weighs whether to bring criminal charges against the former president for alleged hush money payments to adult film star Stormy Daniels.

The event has started in Waco, Texas at Waco Regional Airport. Mr Trump is expected to take the stage at 6pm ET.

Waco is marking the 30th anniversary of a massacre on a religious compound in the area which led to the deaths of 86 people.

Mr Trump’s campaign told USA Today that Waco had been chosen due to its central location in Texas, one of the earliest states to hold its presidential primary election in what’s known as “Super Tuesday”.

Meanwhile, Marjorie Taylor Greene argued that Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg “should be arrested”.

“You want to know why? We have to stop allowing Democrats to abuse us. It’s like we are a beaten spouse,” she said.

House Republicans shared a letter to the DA with The Independent on Saturday revealing that they’re considering protecting Mr Trump with a law shielding ex-presidents from prosecution.

GOP weighs protecting Trump with law shielding ex-presidents from prosecution

A trio of House Republican committee chairs say the House of Representatives could soon take up legislation to strip state and local prosecutors of the authority to prosecute former presidents in response to Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s potential indictment of former president Donald Trump.

In a letter to Mr Bragg, House Judiciary Committee Chair Jim Jordan, Oversight Committee Chair James Comer, and House Administration Committee Chair Bryan Steil rejected arguments the Manhattan prosecutor put forth in a response to the trio’s demand that he give evidence before their panels about the ongoing investigation into Mr Trump, which could result in the twice-impeached ex-president becoming the first former US chief executive to face criminal charges over hush money payments he made to an adult film star in 2016.
