Former president Donald Trump has been arrested and is about to be arraigned at the Manhattan criminal courthouse in New York on charges connected to hush money payments made to a porn star during the 2016 presidential campaign. It was about one 30 this afternoon. That the former president arrived at the Manhattan criminal courthouse in a Secret Service caravan as they went down the FDR Parkway and into Lower Manhattan. He got out of the car, wearing his signature blue suit and red tie, briefly waved to some supporters who were cheering him on and went on into the courthouse. And now, of course, the former president is under arrest and we're waiting for his arraignment which will only be minutes away if supposed to be minutes away. Reporters are allowed in the courtroom, but they are not allowed to have electronic devices. As a result, we are not going to learn the charges until the entire arraignment is over.

Hogan says he and his wife yumi are deeply saddened by the tragic situation. Time two 17. I'm Peter Greenberg and this is today's ion travel minute. Very few of us want to check bags on flights. It not only slows our trip down, it could be expensive, and is more and more of us try to carry on the problem is there's not enough room for our bags in the overhead bins, especially if you're boarding in group number 5. On everything other than a triple 7 or an Airbus three 50, the overhead bins can't handle the carry on bags.
