Former President Trump is expected to fly from Florida to New York next week as he faces charges over the alleged hush money scandal in 2016.

The former president plans to leave Mar-a-Lago for New York on Monday and spend the night at Trump Tower.

Trump is expected to appear in court early this morning. It was earlier reported that he would appear before Judge Juan Mercan at 2:15 p.m.

The Secret Service will ensure Trump's safe delivery. The Secret Service is working with the New York Police Department, the FBI, New York State District Court officials and the Manhattan District Attorney's office to provide security and logistics for Trump's trial and detention.

Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg's office investigated the alleged money laundering scandal for five years. The alleged payments include $130,000 donated by Stormy Daniels and $150,000 donated to former Playboy model Karen McDougal.

The hush money is not illegal, but prosecutors are expected to argue that the payments were improper donations to Trump's campaign because they helped his candidacy.

Trump has denied the allegations, calling them a witch hunt.

"This is political persecution and election interference at the highest level in history," Trump said in a statement. "Since I climbed the golden escalator at Trump Tower and even before I was sworn in as President of the United States, the radical leftist Democrats — the enemies of the working men and women of this country — have been charlatans seeking to destroy the make America great again."
