Palm Beach County, FL - Former President Donald Trump is preparing for a rally by his supporters outside of Mar-a-Lago as a Manhattan grand jury investigates alleged hush-money payments during his 2016 presidential campaign.

Preparations were underway in Palm Beach County as authorities brace themselves for a potential rally by former President Donald Trump's supporters outside of Mar-a-Lago on Tuesday.

The rally comes in the wake of President Trump's recent announcement on Truth Social that he was expecting an indictment out of New York on Tuesday.

The indictment relates to allegations of hush-money payments made during the President's 2016 presidential campaign.

A Manhattan grand jury has been investigating the matter, with 23 members tasked with deciding if there is sufficient evidence for Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg to indict the former President.

According to testimony given by the President's former attorney Michael Cohen, adult film star Stormy Daniels was paid $130,000 and Playboy model Karen McDougal was paid $150,000 to keep quiet about their alleged sexual relationships with the President.

President Trump has denied the allegations.

Federal prosecutors allege that the Trump Organization reimbursed Cohen $420,000, including a $60,000 bonus, and "grossed up" Daniels's payment to defray tax payments.

Prosecutors claim these payments were unreported assistance to Trump's campaign, in violation of federal campaign finance law.

Cohen pled guilty to violating federal campaign finance law.
