This is the heaping list of post-impeachment legal issues for Trump
CNN)Former President Donald Trump faces critical new legal challenges after averting a conviction in his second impeachment trial, as prosecutors in Georgia have joined those in New York to launch criminal investigations into his acts.
“As the nation watched harrowing January 6 videos of Trump supporters storming the US Capitol during this week’s Senate impeachment hearing, Georgia officials revealed that they have launched inquiries into Trump’s attempts to reverse the election results of the state, including by manipulating officials to “dig” votes in his favor to swing the outcome.
The latest inquiries add to a heaping list of legal problems surrounding the former president that could endanger his finances and, perhaps, his liberty.
Trump is currently facing numerous criminal investigations, civil state investigations and defamation litigation by two women accusing him of sexual misconduct out of office and without the protections that the presidency afforded him.
The pressure comes as Trump weighs his future with the Trump Organization in politics and in industry, which has already been hit by the Covid-19 pandemic, also losing corporate relationships following Trump’s speech whipping up the crowd on January 6.
