What are the legal battles Donald Trump still faces? | DW News

Trump may have won a second acquittal -- but that doesn't mean his legal troubles are over. There are multiple investigations into his conduct -- at both the state and federal level -- which could scupper his hopes for a political comeback. We have this look now at some of the legal battles awaiting the former president.
The president's niece, Mary Trump, not only wrote a book about her uncle – she accuses him and two of his siblings of cheating her out of her inheritance. The doctor of psychology is seeking half a million dollars in damages.
Michael Cohen, Trump's former lawyer, did business on behalf of Trump and for that he was sentenced to three years in jail.
Cohen was charged with negotiating payouts for Playboy model Karen McDougal and adult entertainer Stormy Daniels to keep quiet during the 2016 election about their sexual relationships with Trump. As sitting president, Trump was not charged for violating campaign funding rules -- but he could be now.
For more than a year New York district attorney Cyrus Vance requested access to tax and financial documents pertaining to Trump and his businesses, on suspicion of insurance and bank fraud, and tax evasion. It's unclear if Trump's tax returns will show evidence of crimes but, should suspicions harden, Trump could face severe consequences.
Trump is said to have artificially inflated the value of his real estate portfolio when applying for credit – and undervalued it significantly when paying property tax. Trump's son Eric is the Executive Vice President of the Trump Organization – he has already given witness testimony.

The sexual misconduct lawsuits
Several women have accused Trump of sexual misconduct, including rape – he has consistently called the claims fabrications.
In the face of such denials, some of Trump's accusers have launched libel actions. Among them, Summer Zervos, an ex-contestant on Trump's TV show 'The Apprentice', and Jean Carroll, a former columnist for Elle magazine.
And then there's the phone call on January 2nd, after votes were cast in Georgia, in which Trump apparently pressured an electoral official. That, too, could have legal consequences.

There is so much talk ,I’d like to see a legal suit that will hold up against this guy , I say if he’s guilty then why don’t they prove it and put him in jail .
If Sofus from the bench down the street did the same as Trump, he would face life in prison without parole.

He won't have to spend a second in jail is my guess. Vulgar capitalist pigs and celebs with billions of dollars are the de facto nobility of USA, only less likely to face consequences for their actions then real royalty of Europe.

A guilty verdict in criminal courts eliminates his ability to run for office, that might also include fines and prison time. More importantly, how will the Republican party ever regain a Presidential seat if they don’t get their act together? *Now he is private citizen* who will most likely face investigations with the FBI, DC Attorney General, DOJ, and Federal GA Prosecutors in Fulton County. And other crimes with NY Attorney General for tax issues, as well as sexual misconduct allegations by numerous women.

*But who would represent him with all that stacked up evidence following him, should he need the best lawyers? The most prestigious eminent Attorneys won’t be an option* Not to mention all the folks distancing themselves from him: corporations, tech companies, social media giants, business allies and organizations, Rep. donors, Rep voters and former Rep officials considering to split from GOP to form a new party.

*We saw the greatest bipartisan presidential impeachment in US history* 57 Senators (Dems & Reps) to convict, and 232 House (Dems & Reps) to impeach. Despite the 43 Senator votes on a timing technicality as McConnell suggests, the majority was convinced with the overwhelming evidence, that he incited insurrection as his actions were a disgraceful dereliction of duty, practically and morally responsible for provoking even those who now face 20+ year sentencing

Further, not a good legacy for him ...this is a dream assignment for Historical Novelists, Documentarists and Journalists to showcase what led up to the incitement of insurrection on January 6.

And here, we see the media laying groundwork for continuing to cover Trump even though he's silent and irrelevant. They have much more serious issues to report on. They're doing what I do when I procrastinate work by doing less important chores.
Keep going after him,and it might sting you back later on

My feeling is that by failing to take action against the former reality show personality, the republican leaders have caused the opening of a floodgate of litigation, both criminal and civil, not only against individual number one but his family and associates. No stone will be left unturned until he and his family are brought down because the American people and the foundations of the Republic demand justice and they shall have it, not from vengeance but to re-establish the rule of law. No one is above the law.

It’s been the worst kept secret that in Hong Kong news that trump did some questionable transactions with Chinese real estate moguls the Kwok brothers in the sale of the Taj Mahal..

I have to word my comment carefully to avoid censorship..

There’s a lot more to it but I can’t say them. Refer to any Hong Kong news and you will get the scoop on the interesting details on the sale of the Taj Mahal and the billionaires Kwok.

Freedom of expression......hahahaha.. joke
