Tracking Trump’s ongoing investigations, civil suits and countersuits


CNN  — 

In August, former President Donald Trump’s Florida home and private club were searched as part of a Department of Justice criminal investigation.

In September, Trump, his company and members of his family were hit with a civil lawsuit by the New York attorney general.

In October, his company will go on criminal trial after being indicted in 2021 by the Manhattan District Attorney.

There is a complicated web of ongoing investigations, civil suits and countersuits. While he has not been accused of any crime by a government, state or city attorney, Trump is under scrutiny from all three. He denies wrongdoing in all these matters.

His efforts to overturn the 2020 election are on the radar of federal and Georgia prosecutors. His finances, which he long tried to hide from investigators, are under the microscope in New York. He’s been sued for defamation, wrongful termination and for cutting a relative out of a will. The lawsuits and investigations included here do not encompass the multiple investigations of Trump underway by the House of Representatives, which is controlled by Democrats, but would end if Republicans take control after elections in November.
