A New York grand jury investigating President Donald Trump's role in a hush money payment made to porn star Stormy Daniels will not meet on Wednesday as scheduled.

The 23-member panel hearing evidence in the potential case was set to meet Wednesday afternoon, but was informed by prosecutors that it was not needed. The jury could reconvene Thursday.

If Trump were to be indicted, he would be the first former U.S. president ever to be charged with a crime. Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg's office has been engaged in delicate negotiations with the Secret Service over how to handle the indictment and arrest of the former president.
