On both the criminal and civil litigation fronts, former President Donald Trump faces a bevy of lawsuits and investigations, with more cases likely to follow.

More from the article...

...Some are civil suits stemming from his pre-presidential business dealings. Others are defamation claims from women he allegedly assaulted. More still are criminal probes and civil actions that scrutinize his attempts to overturn the results of the 2020 election. The Chart below tracks all these cases. It will be continually updated as major legal developments occur.

These cases bear on two pressing questions. First, will Trump maintain his long streak of eluding legal liability in the face of so many lawsuits? Second, if Trump is held to account for illegal conduct, what impact will such a development have on his -- and his family's -- political and business fortunes?

Criminal charges -- one would think -- would be among the most damaging outcomes. After all, a criminal prosecution of a former president would be a singular event in American history. No former president has ever been indicted, much less convicted. Trump lost any immunity from indictment that he may have possessed as president the moment he left office on Jan. 20. To be sure, most of the criminal probes detailed below are in their infancy, so the odds of an actual conviction at this time remain improbable. Even so, the mere stigma of criminal charges against the former president could reshape the American political landscape and the historical understanding of Trump's behavior.

The civil cases could certainly do their fair share of damage as well, directly or indirectly. If Trump falters in one of his business-related suits, his companies may be subject to massive penalties, or worse. Even apart from such sanctions, his empire is reportedly struggling under looming debt obligations and reduced revenues, a slump which could worsen if his reputation continues to deteriorate.

With these legal threats bearing down on the former president from nearly every direction, this tracker collects them in one place. ...

OKay, I'll ask...

Are all these lawsuits against fmr Pres Trump justified, or are they just politically motivated?

#2 probably both.

@#2 ... probably both. ...

So easy to say.

Got links? Or any manner of substantiation for the assertion?

Jus' askin'

Fascinating take. So, if it's both, which is more significant in your perspective? The fact the actions were criminal to start with or that the resulting response has tangient political motivation?

@#5 ... Fascinating take. ...

As is yours.

Bottom line, imo...

Fealty to a person, or fealty to the rule of law and order.

That seems to be, for me, the decision that many people may be pondering of late.

Fealty to a person, or fealty to the rule of law and order.

Anyone care to guess which side the supporters of fmr Pres Trump will land upon?

Nah. That seems straight forward. My attempt is to glean perspective from the self-described none Trump supporter currently known as JEFFJ...no, wait...excuse me, known as BELLRINGER.

Appreciate the link. Looks like a decent way to keep track of the various court cases. Like a program!

Keep in mind that to most republicans anything done against ------- is corrupt
No crime no proof no evidence no admission is enough to convince them that ------- is corrupt
It is all a plot against him

#4. Well, Democrats have a track record of trying to criminalize policy disputes. Ted Stevens, Tom DeLay and Rick Perry all spring immediately to mind.

Break it down for us. The parent link lists 22 lawsuits. Which ones are policy disputes, and which ones are justified?

You're just a blowhard, JeffJ. You never bring anything of substance to the discussion.

Don't you understand that you aren't wanted here? You're the turd in the punch bowl.

Even your own family feels that way about you.

FBI agents should sue trump.

Trump apparently leaked the warrant to Breitbart. The DOJ had sought to redact or shield the names of agents involved. Trump took no caution. The Breitbart article has names of agents, which obviously puts a target on their back. Reprehensible. Trump needs to be stopped. Enough.

#18. Keep in mind that all sorts of people dared him to leak the warrant. Even people on this site. His people are too stupid the consider them importance of redacting the names of the agents on the raid.

-------- history strongly suggests that the leak was intentional to terrorize the agents.

If the democrats are so evil why are there no lawsuits and litigation against Obama? Why isn't Hillary locked up?

You would think there would be hundreds. Or Thousands of cases filed against those evil corrupt democratic leaders. (But don't forget Benghazi!!! How could we?)

But really there are none. (Well except for the meritless claims by The Donald hisself).

Can you just imagine the crap storm if Obama or God forbid hHillary had taken just one box of top secret SCI documents or even just one scape of top secret paper home??

You have to ask yourself why is that? Or not and continue to believe the lies of a desperate and obviously criminally corrupt narcissistic mob boss for some bizarre reason like little DingDongDummy here.

DingaLingDong even acts all Trumpy. Weird.

Everything he did was politics, so it is impossible to separate the two. So yeah, not only justified, but politically motivated as well.

To be fair, though, can anyone here show how many lawsuits involving any former president or presidential candidate were filed, pending or adjudicated? Because T****'s lawsuit count exceeds 3,500 and counting...at some point, you just have to wonder how someone can get sued 3,500+ times for innocent behavior.

That was done on purpose so Trumps idiot base could go hunting. Trump was punishing the FBI agents for doing their jobs by putting them in danger.
