Former President Trump to Surrender to Manhattan DA’s Office Next Week
In this issue: Former President Trump expected to surrender next week; Twitter removes check mark from New York Times
Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg requested that former President Donald Trump surrender to his office on Friday following his indictment for hush money payments made before the 2016 presidential election, but a source familiar with the matter said that due to Secret Service involvement, Trump will most likely surrender on Tuesday. Legal experts explained that a defendant who surrenders in a nonviolent case would typically surrender to a central booking location, but special accommodations are likely being made due to Trump's former presidential status. The Secret Service and the New York Police Department are expected to play a large role in the process. Federal prosecutors in the Southern District of New York chose not to charge Trump related to the payments made to adult film actress Stormy Daniels and former Playboy model Karen McDougal. The investigation into Trump began in 2019 and initially focused on possible bank, insurance, and tax fraud. The probe led to tax fraud charges against The Trump Organization and its finance chief Allen Weisselberg last year.

ASSOCIATED PRESS — Twitter pulls check mark from main New York Times account
Twitter has removed the verification check mark from The New York Times' main account after the newspaper declined to pay for verification of its institutional accounts. CEO Elon Musk, who owns Twitter, had set a deadline of Saturday for verified users to buy a premium Twitter subscription or lose their blue check marks. Other Times accounts, such as its business news and opinion pages, still had either blue or gold check marks. Musk had disparaged the newspaper, which has reported aggressively on Twitter and on flaws with partially automated driving systems at Tesla, the electric car company he runs. The White House will not enroll in premium Twitter accounts, and celebrity users have balked at joining the service. The costs of keeping the check marks ranges from $8 a month for individual web users to a starting price of $1,000 monthly to verify an organization, plus $50 monthly for each affiliate or employee account.
