Efforts are underway to return former US President Donald Trump to the White House, but his path is not looking easy due to legal hurdles. This has been said in media reports.
New York Attorney General Letitia James has sued him for tax fraud and an appeals court in Atlanta has allowed the Justice Department to resume access to classified documents for the FBI, fearing that That the documents may come under the purview of the Espionage Act.
According to political analysts and legal experts, Trump’s legal woes have become insurmountable and could dent the former US president’s hopes of winning the election.
On Wednesday, Trump and his three adult children were accused of lying to tax collectors, lenders and insurers in a ‘shocking’ fraud scheme that regularly misvalued their assets to enrich themselves.
In another case, an appeals court in Atlanta allowed the DOJ to re-open access to classified documents seized by the FBI at Mar-a-Lago in the interests of national security.
The Special Master Himself Asked Trump’s Lawyers to Show Him the Files the Former President Had Made Public
Lawyers protested, saying it could open the way for a new indictment against Trump.
The civil suit, filed by the attorney general of New York, came after the FBI examined Trump’s sensitive government documents at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida, and a special grand jury in Georgia considered whether he and others had contacted Joe Biden. After his defeat, he tried to influence the election officials of the state.
According to The Guardian, the former US president has repeatedly indicated that he intends to run for the White House again in 2024.
But a series of criminal, civil and congressional investigations could still derail that bid. Trump has accused incumbent President Joe Biden of starting a “witch hunt” with the Democrats against him.
Meanwhile, former Trump attorney Michael Cohen predicted on Wednesday that New York Attorney General Letitia James’ investigation into the newly announced fraud in former President Trump’s business would make it difficult for Trump.
