New York fraud case complicates potential plans for Trump 2024

  • Donald Trump ponders another presidential run in 2024 as he faces a series of investigations.
  • This week, the New York Attorney General indicted Trump on charges of fraud.
  • Trump’s legal troubles will “be in the news again and again,” said Andrew Weissmann, a prosecutor in the Russia investigation.
  • But former Trump AG Bill Barr disagreed. “I don’t think it will hurt him,” Barr said.

WASHINGTON — Now that the New York Attorney General has charged Donald Trump with fraud, one thing seems more certain: If Trump becomes president again in 2024, he will do so while defending himself in court.

Maybe multiple courts.

The long-running arsenal of investigations into Trump — covering his business practices, his handling of classified information, his efforts to undo his 2020 election loss, and his role in the January 6, 2021 uprising — will tax any presidential run in 2024 by the former. CEO, analysts said.
