Robert Mueller has confined his remit to just the Russian collusion investigation farming out all the other stuff to other prosecutors. While Mueller’s investigation has led to 215 criminal charges, 38 indictments or pleas, and five prison sentences so far, that other stuff may prove to be more condemning of Trump and the Trump Organization. The Atlantic has listed all the other investigations that are ongoing after Mueller leaves the scene.
The Atlantic: After Mueller: The Ongoing Investigations Surrounding Trump
The United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York has at least three investigations that have not yet concluded: 1) the financial dealings of Trump’s inauguration committee, which took in a record $107 million for the festivities surrounding his inauguration, 2) whether Manafort, as chairman of Trump’s campaign, illegally coordinated with a pro-Trump super PAC, Rebuilding America Now, and whether that super PAC also received donations from people connected to Qatar and other Middle Eastern countries, and 3) Cohen's communications with Trump and Trump’s representatives following the FBI raid of Cohen’s office in April 2018.
The United States Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Virginia has three unresolved cases under investigation: 1) the indictment of Kamil Ekim Alptekin, an associate of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, charged for acting as an agent of the Turkish government and lying to the FBI, 2) charges against another Flynn associate, Bijan Kian, for failing to register as a foreign agent after working on behalf of the Turkish government, and 3) the indictment of Elena Alekseevna Khusyaynova, the accountant for the Internet Research Agency, the Russian troll farm that authorities believe created fake social-media accounts to influence United States elections.
The United States Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia has ongoing cases related to the WikiLeaks release of hacked emails from the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic Party: 1) Roger Stone was arrested and charged with making false statements, witness tampering, and obstructing an official proceeding, 2) Michael Flynn the former national security adviser, pleaded guilty to making false statements to the FBI but has not been sentenced, because he is still cooperating with Mueller, 3) Rick Gates Rick, a business associate of Manafort, charged with conspiracy and failure to register as a foreign agent, among other charges has pleaded guilty and cooperating with Mueller’s investigation, 4) Konstantin Kilimnik, another Manafort associate, has been indicted on charges of obstruction of justice and conspiracy to obstruct justice, 5) Maria Butina, a Russian national attending graduate school in the United States, pleaded guilty to conspiring to act as an unregistered Russian agent and is cooperating pending her sentence, and 6) three Russian businesses, including the Internet Research Agency, and 13 Russian nationals charged with federal crimes committed while they allegedly attempted to interfere in the 2016 presidential election.
The Department of Justice (Public Integrity Section) is investigating Elliott Broidy, a prominent Republican fundraiser, for possibly attempting to cash in on his connections with the Trump administration by requesting millions of dollars from foreign governments in exchange for pushing the administration to take actions benefiting those countries.
The State attorneys general of Washington, D.C., and New Jersey, have each subpoenaed the records of Trump’s inauguration committee, indicating a widening prosecutorial interest into that committee’s practices.
New York State and New York City tax departments have at least four ongoing investigations into Trump’s taxes after a New York Times investigation found that Trump benefited from a $400 million tax scheme. The New York attorney general is investigating Trump Organization projects, including four major Trump Hotel and Tower projects and the organization’s failed attempt to purchase the Buffalo Bills football team with suspect loans from Deutsche Bank and Investors Bank.
The New York attorney general also has an ongoing criminal investigation into the activities of the Trump Foundation, even though the foundation is dissolving.
The state attorneys general for Maryland and the District of Columbia are suing Trump for allegedly violating the emoluments clause of the Constitution.
The Manhattan district attorney has indicted Manafort, Trump’s former campaign chairman, on 16 charges, including mortgage fraud to ensure that a presidential pardon will not get Manafort out of jail.
In addition the various Congressional committees -- the House Intelligence Committe, the House Finacial Srvices Committee, the House Oversight Committee, the House Judiciary Committee, the House Ways and Means Committee, the House Foreign Affairs Committee, and the Senate Intelligence Committee are all actively pursuing different aspects of possible criminal conduct by the president and his staff. They have enough on their plates to last well beyond the 2020 election.
Sorry for the long list. I just wanted to emphasize the enormous scope of the ongoing investigations and future trials that will consume Trump and his Tweets and the media for the next couple of years if not longer. The Mueller report is just the end of the beginning.
There must be an impeachable offense somewhere in that list. No?
