Over the weekend, Donald Trump and his family celebrated the conclusion of special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe. The special counsel found that there was not sufficient evidence to prove collusion with Russia — but that the probe does not exonerate President Trump on whether he obstructed justice.
Nevertheless, the president claimed he was fully exonerated.
But the Mueller report has no bearing on multiple investigations carried out by the Southern District of Manhattan, which is looking at separate instances of possible wrongdoing by Trump.
On MSNBC Monday, former federal prosecutor Glenn Kirschner pointed to the potential campaign finance violation Trump may have committed after paying off Stormy Daniels.
“Here is the quicker, Nicolle,” said Kirschner. “The president may have to run for re-election just to avoid being hauled into court for this. What does that tell us about his fitness to be our president for another four years?”
