President Donald Trump is still facing several potentially damaging investigations even if special counsel Robert Mueller is winding down his probe of Russian interference in the 2016 election, a criminal justice expert explained Wednesday on CNN.
The network has reported that Trump’s new attorney general, Bill Barr, is preparing to receive special counsel Robert Mueller’s report as early as next week.
“I want to tell our viewers, the Mueller investigation is preparing at the DOJ to receive this as early as next week. The clearest indication that it is wrapping up,” CNN host Brianna Keilar said.
“That doesn’t mean that the investigation of the president or the people associated with the president is in any way over,” CNN crime and justice reporter Shimon Prokupecz added.
“Because there is still very much a lingering problem for him out of the Southern District of New York and … that is one of the things that concerns the president and the president’s people much more than this Mueller investigation. That is where he is still facing a lot of jeopardy. He’s already been implicated in one crime there. They just now subpoenaed all of the financial records for the inauguration.”
“They’re still working through the Trump Organization and that investigation and the hush money payment investigation is still ongoing. So there’s still a lot that’s going to go on,” Prokupecz said.
