Daniel R. Alonso was quoted on August 13, 2020, in a Law360 article, “The sealed indictment: How Trump could be secretly charged,” which explored mechanisms in which Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. could secretly secure an indictment and even an arrest warrant for the president, beating legal deadlines, and then delay prosecution for months or even years.
Alonso noted, “If the DA believes he has enough evidence to charge the president and he believes he has that evidence now or some point before the election, my best guess is that he would do the responsible thing and not influence the outcome of the election by making public the fact that he has this warrant for his arrest. He would probably keep it under seal until after the election, and possibly until after the president's term."
