Trump is expected to surrender to the Manhattan DA’s office early next week, his attorney Joe Tacopina told NBC News.
Two sources familiar with the situation also said Trump’s attorneys are already in touch with prosecutors and expect him to be arraigned next week.
A Bragg spokesperson said in a statement that the district attorney's office contacted Trump's lawyer Thursday evening to make arrangements for his surrender, adding that details of his arraignment date are pending.
“This evening we contacted Mr. Trump’s attorney to coordinate his surrender to the Manhattan D.A.’s Office for arraignment on a Supreme Court indictment, which remains under seal," the spokesperson said, referring to the state's highest trial court. "Guidance will be provided when the arraignment date is selected.”

Trump's indictment means he is formally charged with a crime. But there are still several steps before his case gets to a potential trial.
After the indictment, Trump will be arrested and taken into custody. He will most likely have a mug shot and fingerprints taken.
Trump will then be arraigned in court, where he will hear charges and enter a plea. Two sources familiar with the situation said he is likely to be arraigned next week. Trump will be either jailed or released while pretrial hearings take place.
The case can then be dismissed or it can go to trial. If Trump is found guilty at trial, he would then be sentenced.
