News coverage this week gave heavy attention to Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report, which said no evidence was found of Donald Trump cooperating with Russia interference in the 2016 U.S. election but gave a less conclusive judgment on whether Trump obstructed justice. Trump still faces at least 26 other investigations by state and federal prosecutors, state and federal regulators, and congressional committees into charges of improper use of a charitable foundation, Trump’s personal taxes, his business taxes, his use of undocumented workers, hush money payments, abuse of power, improper security clearances, campaign finance violations, preferential loans, whether Trump foreign investments are undercutting the nation’s foreign policy, and whether he and his family are profiting from the presidency in violation of the emoluments clause of the U.S. Constitution.
