Trump has not received a court order to testify and has not been forced to appear in court as part of the investigation by the Manhattan District Attorney's Office, the former president's lawyers told NBC News.

The invitation for Trump to testify

next week

was first advanced by The New York Times.

The Attorney General's Office told the former president's lawyers that he could face criminal charges as part of the investigation, according to the Times report.

A spokesman for the District Attorney's Office declined to comment to NBC News.

In a statement Thursday, a Trump spokesman called the potential indictment against the former president a political attack.

"The threat by the Manhattan District Attorney's Office to impeach President Trump is simply insane. For the past five years, the District Attorney's Office

has conducted a witch hunt

, investigating every aspect of President Trump's life and they always leave empty-handed. And now this," the spokesperson said.

"The fact that after its investigation the Prosecutor's Office is considering a new political attack is a clear exoneration of President Trump in all areas."

NBC News reported that New York prosecutors called for the creation of a grand jury during the investigation into whether Trump paid

porn actress Stormy Daniels

not to reveal an alleged relationship between them during the 2016 presidential campaign.

Michael Cohen, a former Trump attorney, pleaded guilty in federal court in 2018 to making an illegal payment to Daniels himself for the “primary purpose of influencing” the 2016 presidential election. Cohen said he made the payment on Trump's orders. .

The investigation into payments to the porn actress

has spanned nearly five years.
