The New York Times reports:
Former President Donald J. Trump is expected to appear at 4 p.m. on Thursday in the U.S. federal courthouse at the foot of Capitol Hill, the site of a yearslong government effort to hold accountable those who tried to subvert democracy. The former president will fly down on his private jet from his golf club in Bedminster, N.J. He is expected to arrive between 3 and 4 p.m., at the E. Barrett Prettyman courthouse, the venue for dozens of trials stemming from the Jan. 6, 2021, attack on the Capitol.
The U.S. Marshals Service, which is responsible for security inside federal courthouses, will escort him to an area where he will be booked for a third time this year. The marshals did not photograph Mr. Trump in Miami, and they will not take his picture in Washington. But federal rules dictate that an accused person be reprocessed in each jurisdiction in which he or she faces charges, so Mr. Trump will have to be fingerprinted for a second time using an electronic scanning device.
The Washington Post reports:
A federal courthouse near the foot of the U.S. Capitol will be ringed with law enforcement Thursday, prepared to welcome Donald Trump back to a neighborhood where he rallied thousands of angry supporters toward the seat of government less than three years ago. But this time, he’ll come not as the president, but as a criminal defendant.
As Trump’s team finalizes his travel from Bedminster, N.J., to Washington — where he will face charges that he conspired to subvert the results of the 2020 presidential election — federal and local law enforcement officials in the District have been coordinating security measures for his arrival.
The Federal Protective Service parked vehicles in a lot along Constitution Avenue. The U.S. Marshals Service has stepped up protection for judges assigned to the case, and metal bike rack barriers were placed near the court’s entrance to control pedestrian traffic.
No mugshot for Trump tomorrow. But under federal rules he must be reprocessed in each jurisdiction where he’s charged — so he’ll be fingerprinted again, and have to re-answer a raft of personal questions. What to expect at Trump’s historic hearing: https://t.co/8cMKRlji5r

Trump will have his mugshot taken if he’s indicted over Fulton County’s investigation into alleged criminal efforts to overturn the 2020 election results in Georgia, county Sheriff Pat Labat said. https://t.co/zCsQ7x9LnW

By 10:00 p.m., construction workers with neon yellow vests had surrounded about half of the perimeter of the courthouse with four-foot-tall bike rack-styled fences. https://t.co/TTM6vLWEbb
