Assault on Capitol Hill, rape, fraud and more: the long list of investigations against Trump

The investigation into possible tax crimes committed by the Trump Organization for which the former president had to testify before the New York Prosecutor’s Office last Wednesday, is not the only legal problem facing the controversial former president of the United States.

Neither does the FBI investigation, which searched the tycoon’s home last Monday for classified documents that Trump might have taken with him when he left the White House.

The Republican politician maintains open more than twenty cases (civil and criminal) and investigations for matters related to his businesses, for assault on women or for the assault on the Capitol on January 6, 2021.

If Donald Trump goes on criminal trial in the cases, it would be the first time in US history that a former president faces justice.

There are various causes facing Trump for the events of January 6, 2021, when thousands of his supporters stormed the US Capitol to prevent the electoral victory of Democrat Joe Biden from being ratified, events that left five dead and About 140 officers injured.

The US Congress is investigating the assault in committee and gathering evidence of Trump’s possible involvement in the event, although the former top US representative will likely have to testify.

However, for this event he has several complaints: 10 members of the House of Representatives have sued Trump, Rudy Giuliani and two groups of far-rightists for conspiracy. While Californian Congressman Eric Swalwell sued them for violating federal civil rights laws, among other charges.

In addition, several groups of Capitol police sued the former US high-ranking ruler for the injuries they suffered, physical and emotional, that day. In all, he has three separate lawsuits from officers alleging that, with his inflammatory words and conduct, Donald Trump directed the attack.

He also faces a lawsuit imposed by two officers of the Metropolitan Police for similar reasons.

The writer Jean Carroll denounced in a book in 2019 that Trump, then a millionaire real estate agent, he raped her in the dressing room of a popular store in New York.

The former leader of the Executive accused her of inventing it, and the writer sued him for damages and defamation. The case remains open before the Second Circuit. If the parties do not reach an agreement, the trial is scheduled to take place next year.

And another aggression, in this case by his security team, also has its demand. Six protesters put it up in 2015 denouncing being assaulted by Trump’s bodyguards outside Trump Tower.

The case is pending in the New York State Court, and the former president had to testify for it in October 2021.

Donald Trump has problems even with his own family. Her niece Mary Trump sued him for defrauding her in a million-dollar inheritance dispute. The lawsuit is pending in New York State Court.

Additionally, a group of anonymous accusers filed a class action lawsuit against the Trump family and their business, alleging that the Trumps used their brand to scam investors into paying for worthless business opportunities. The district court rejected the Trumps’ attempt to force arbitration of the case, and now the Trumps are appealing.

On the other hand, the Legal Defense Fund of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People also sued the former president, the Trump Campaign and the Republican National Committee for their efforts to nullify the 2020 elections. They accuse them of violating the Voting Rights Act and the Ku Klux Klan Act.

The cases against Trump have also crossed borders. In February 2021, the Scottish Parliament voted to reject an investigation into unexplained cash transactions executed by the Trump Organization’s Scottish golf courses.
