The Manhattan grand jury hearing evidence regarding former President Donald Trump's alleged role in a hush money payment sent to adult film actress Stormy Daniels is reportedly expected to take a month-long break.

Any possible indictment of Trump would be pushed to late April at the earliest, according to multiple media reports.

The break was pre-planned, a source told The New York Post.

The grand jury's most recent meeting was Monday, when they heard testimony from former National Enquirer publisher David Pecker, who met with former Trump attorney Michael Cohen in August 2015.

Prosecutors are investigating Trump in connection to the $130,000 that Cohen gave to Daniels before the 2016 election in an attempt to keep her silent about an alleged relationship with Trump a decade earlier. Trump has denied any wrongdoing in the case.
