Trump divulged, via his Saturday morning Truth Social missive, that he gleaned information about his alleged arrest from “illegal leaks” and promptly rallied his supporters to protest.

Susan Necheles, Trump’s attorney, informed NPR that her client’s conjecture springs from “media reports” and she denounced prosecutors for eschewing communication with Trump’s legal team.
