The legal woes surrounding President Donald Trump and his family may be about to get a lot worse.
During a CNN panel discussion on the New York Attorney General’s Office lawsuit against the Trump Foundation, former federal prosecutor Seth Waxman said that the Trump family could soon face real legal jeopardy, despite the fact that the AG’s action is only a civil lawsuit.
“As I’ve understood it, there have been referrals made to the Federal Election Commission and the IRS,” he said. “When Donald Trump the president signed this tax form that’s associated with charitable foundations, he signed it and said all the money being brought in will be used for charitable purposes. If he lied, that is a federal crime.”
Reporter April Ryan, meanwhile, predicted that we are about to see a flood of new information about the Trump family’s finances — and none of it will look good for the president.
“There are trails of money everywhere that’s pointing to the family,” she said. “It just screams to me — all of this is about money from a charity that’s gone to different places that weren’t supposed to happen. Then you have what’s happening over here with Mueller. They’re pulling records and pulling computers trying to find out the trail of money, because that all leads to whatever the end case is.”

Ex-Reagan adviser nails why white evangelicals flock to Trump in devastating takedown of fake Christians
Why do evangelicals — or at least, white ones — love President Donald Trump so much? Why do they stick by a president who has barely even read the Bible, has defiled marriage, and embodies the antithesis of so much of what their churches preach? Why, according to polls, did they essentially decide overnight that it's no longer important for a president to have strong personal morals to be an effective leader?

CNN host forced to explain to Republican Rick Santorum why Trump’s attack on Democratic lawmakers was racist
During an appearance on CNN's "New Day" -- along with fellow Republican Charlie Dent (PA) -- ex-Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA) received a lecture from host John Berman on why Donald Trump's tweets and attacks on four Democratic lawmakers were racist.
While Dent revealed that down-ticket Republicans running for re-election in 2020 are "terrified" that Trump's descent into overt racism as a campaign strategy may kill their chances of holding their seats, Santorum said he was disgusted with the whole spectacle while saying he didn't see the attacks as racist.
Asked about the president's attacks, Santorum tried to brush them away and blame the recipients of Trump's ire.
