Welcome to Rabbit Hole, a breaking-news analysis that helps you get smart on the one story everyone’s obsessing over—for Beast Inside members only.
The Mueller investigation might be winding down, but that doesn’t mean Trump’s legal problems are over. Quite the opposite. CNN reported on Tuesday that federal prosecutors in New York want to talk to Trump Organization executives and there’s a new subpoena asking for heaps of information about fundraising during the Trump inauguration. So where are these lines of inquiry headed and whose names will Trump be cursing to the high heavens if those New York prosecutors—presumably from the Southern District, covering Trump Tower and the rest of Manhattan—get there?
CNN said it couldn’t confirm what prosecutors were interested in talking to Trump Organization executives about but one of the lingering issues from former Trump fixer Michael Cohen’s guilty plea on campaign finance charges is whether his role in helping pay hush money to Trump’s alleged mistresses could pose any jeopardy for Trump’s company.
