Former President Trump entered the 2024 presidential race Tuesday with significant legal baggage.
Though he hasn’t been charged with any crimes, Trump faces exposure from multiple probes that are expected to ramp up now that investigators’ self-imposed hiatus on overt activity ahead of the midterms has been replaced with pressure to file any charges well in advance of the 2024 election.
The first indictment of a former president would not bar Trump from running for reelection. But such a historic move would almost certainly destabilize the country and deepen emerging divisions within the Republican Party as primary election season draws nearer.
Here’s where three investigations surrounding Trump currently stand….
- The Department of Justice (DOJ) probe into Trump’s potentially unlawful retention of classified records after leaving the White House could soon ramp up significantly.Some legal experts believe that, based on what’s publicly known, there is enough evidence to pursue charges against Trump for mishandling national defense information. The recent addition of two high-profile veteran prosecutors to the investigative team could also indicate an uptick in tempo…..
- The DOJ is also probing Trump’s actions surrounding the Jan. 6, 2021, attack at the Capitol, though this investigation has been largely overshadowed by the Trump classified records case.
The Jan. 6 investigation has steadily expanded over the nearly two years since the attack. In addition to charging some 950 people with crimes related to the Jan. 6 riot, the department’s probe now extends to members of Trump’s orbit and the former president’s own actions — though there is no public evidence that Trump is currently the subject of a criminal investigation on this front. …

Decisions over whether to bring charges in the case may come before the end of the year, according to previous statements by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis (D) and recent reporting on her office’s anticipated timeline….
