The People vs. Donald Trump: Every Major Lawsuit and Investigation the President Faces

This is a few months old but really delves into every lawsuit.

Donald Trump faces an increasing number of lawsuits against him personally and his business, as well as the growing peril that he may be indicted on charges by federal prosecutors, which could predicate a constitutional challenge or a constitutional crisis over whether a sitting president may face criminal charges.

The president has an unprecedented number of legal entanglements compared to even the most challenged previous president. These include lawsuits brought in state and federal court by individuals, companies, and state attorneys general against him personally and in his role as president. His company, the Trump Organization, his charity, the Trump Foundation, and his three oldest children also face lawsuits and a variety of potential jeopardy.

On Dec. 12, Trump’s long-time personal attorney and “fixer,” the real-estate and taxi-medallion entrepreneur Michael Cohen, received a three-year sentence for his guilty pleas related to tax evasion, bank fraud, lying to Congress, and campaign-finance violations, as well as about $2 million in restitution to the IRS, fines, and forfeiture. Cohen had declined to become a cooperating witness for federal prosecutors, which would have required he reveal any illegal behavior beyond the charges to which he had pleaded.

1. The orange mobster doesn't give a poop about any law anymore.

 

He knows he's going to be showered with dozens of State indictments the day he'll either resign or lose.

His only out-of-jail card is to start playing ("faking" early-stage Dementia in a bid his lawyers will plea for no state-jail time.

Pence will pardon him preemptively like Ford did Nixon. He will do it during transition. Then the NY State indictments will start raining.

He knows it and he's "faking" bits of deeper and deeper insanity every week.

Time to start impeachment hearings IMHO.

2. Sadly, most Muricans don't know or don't care about most of this.
