Secret Service readies for potential scenario of Trump being jailed for contempt in hush money case

Judge Merchan reserved his decision after a contentious hearing regarding former President Donald Trump and the possibility of short-term confinement if found in contempt in his hush money trial. Prosecutors are currently seeking a fine instead of incarceration, but officials are planning for contingencies. The U.S. Secret Service is involved in the planning but declined to comment on specific operations. Prosecutors accuse Trump of violating a gag order by making statements about witnesses and lawyers in the case on social media. Trump’s defense argues that the gag order is vague and allows for political statements. No discussions have yet been held on potential next steps if Trump is convicted and sentenced to prison.
