Investigating a hush-money scheme to conceal a potential sex scandal with the Associated Investigative Investigative Complaints in New York
Donald J. Trump faces a number of investigations regarding his business and political career at the state and federal levels.
Mr. Trump has pleaded not guilty to 34 felony counts filed by prosecutors in Manhattan related to his role in what they described as a hush-money scheme to cover up a potential sex scandal in order to clear his path to the presidency in 2016. The prosecutor in Georgia is looking into Mr. Trump’s attempts to change the outcome of the election.
Among other things, Mr. Trump and his allies tried to create false slates of pro-Trump delegates in swing states so that they wouldn’t vote for him. The prosecutors have requested information about the fund-raising operation of Mr. Trump.
Mr. Bragg accused Mr. Trump and Mr. Cohen of lying to Congress in regards to the payments.
Michael D. Cohen was a manager for Mr. Trump at the time. Mr. Trump paid Mr. Cohen after he became president.
Prosecutors say the tabloid suppressed her account because of their close relationship with Trump and Cohen. (Mr. Trump has denied having affairs with either Ms. Daniels or Ms. McDougal.)
Justice department charges false indictments in the 2020 presidential election: An outburst by the forewoman in Fulton County
Prosecutors in Georgia are planning to announce indictments this summer for their investigations of Donald Trump and his associates, over their efforts to affect the results of the 2020 presidential election.
After the election in Georgia, Mr. Trump called the secretary of state and demanded 11,780 votes to overcome the lead of Vice President Biden.
Legal experts say that Mr. Trump and others are at risk of prosecution due to a number of Georgia statutes.
A special grand jury was impaneled in May of last year in Fulton County, and it heard testimony from 75 witnesses behind closed doors over a series of months. The jurors produced a final report, but the most important elements of it — including recommendations on who should be indicted and on what charges — remain under seal.
In an interview with The New York Times in February, the forewoman mentioned that Mr. Trump had been included in some of the recommended indictments. She said that you would be shocked. “It’s not rocket science.”
The district attorney of Fulton County decides what charges to bring and brings them to a grand jury. She said she would do it during the first three weeks of August.
On the investigation of the 2020 Capitol attack by a special counsel’s office: prosecutors filed a criminal complaint against the former president and his associates
In December, the committee issued an 845-page report detailing the events that led to the attack on the Capitol that concluded that Mr. Trump and some of his associates had devised “a multipart plan to overturn the 2020 presidential election.”
The panel accused Mr. Trump of inciting insurrection and other crimes, and referred him and his allies to the Justice Department for possible prosecution.
The referrals were largely symbolic, but they sent a powerful signal that a bipartisan committee of Congress believed the former president had committed crimes.
The special counsel’s office has recently won important legal battles in its inquiry as judges in Washington have issued rulings forcing top Trump administration officials like former Vice President Mike Pence and the former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows to testify in front of a grand jury.
It is unclear what charges, if any, might come from the federal investigation. But prosecutors continue to pursue a variety of angles. According to people briefed on the matter, they subpoenaed staff members from the White House who might have had a role in firing the cybersecurity official who had an opinion on how safe the 2020 election was.
Mr. Trump was sued by the New York attorney general for overvaluing his assets.
Ms. James is seeking to bar the Trumps, including Mr. Trump’s older sons, Donald Jr. and Eric, and his older daughter, Ivanka, from running a business in New York.
She succeeded in getting a judge to appoint an independent monitor to look over the finances of the Trump Organization.
Because Ms. James’s investigation is civil, she cannot file criminal charges. She could try to get a swifter financial payoff with settlement negotiations. If she were to prevail at trial, a judge could impose steep financial penalties on Mr. Trump and restrict his business operations in New York.
