Nancy and Paul Pelosi arrived in New York City on Monday, the day before Donald Trump claims he’ll be arraigned by the Manhattan district attorney.
The speaker emerita and her husband arrived in a bevy of SUVs and were surrounded by the federal marshalls who still give her protection even though she’s left Democratic leadership. Aides carrying their luggage.
It’s unclear why the couple, who have homes in San Francisco and Washington D.C., were in the Big Apple.
Pelosi’s office did not immediately respond to Dailymail.com’s request for comment.
Nancy Pelosi was spotted in New York City on Monday
The couple was in Washington D.C. over the weekend. Pelosi attended a Women’s History Month event at Vice President Kamala Harris’ residence on Saturday, according to posts on social media.
She and Paul Pelosi attended the Mark Twain Prize at the Kennedy Center on Sunday evening.
They arrived in New York as Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg has signaled an indictment for the former president is imminent. Trump, on Saturday, claimed he will be arrested on Tuesday although that date has not been confirmed by officials.
New York police began installing barriers on Monday morning around the Manhattan court complex where Trump is expected to surrender.
The former president faces criminal charges for $130,000 in payments his former lawyer, Michael Cohen, sent to porn star Stormy Daniels toward the end of his 2016 campaign. Prosecutors say the payment violated campaign finance laws, and was made to silence Daniels about an affair with the business titan.
Trump denied he ever had an affair. And he’s issued a rallying call for his supporters to protest the matter.
Nancy Pelosi and Donald Trump were bitter enemies while he was president and she was speaker of the House.
He called her ‘Crazy Nancy.’ She questioned his mental capacity to be president.

She stepped down as leader of the House Democrats after the 2022 election but was awarded the honorary title of speaker emerita.
And she has shown her unencumbered side now that she’s no longer a party leader.
‘I’m emancipated now!,’ she told the Los Angeles Times. ‘Liberated! Freedom! Free at last!’
The Times previewed her post-speaker life, including details like she eats ice cream for breakfast, a hot dog for lunch and is trying to dance more.
Additionally, she told the paper: ‘I’m writing a book.’
She didn’t offer details about what it was about or when it’s coming out.
During her lunch with the LA Times reporter, she was careful not to say Trump’s name. And when it accidentally slipped out, she instructed him. ‘Don’t write that down. Just say she burped.’
