Trump investigations: It's not just Mueller, here are 17 other probes the president should be worried about

Donald Trump and his supporters have pointed to a four-page summary produced by William Barr, who the president appointed to lead the Justice Department late last year, as evidence of his exoneration in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Cleared by Mueller, Trump faces slew of other probes

The Mueller investigation is over, but President Donald Trump now faces a slew of other investigations by federal prosecutors in New York and Democrats in Congress that could create more deep troubles for his administration. The biggest threat comes from federal prosecutors in New York, who have already prised a guilty plea on multiple charges from Trump's former personal lawyer Michael Cohen and who could be a dangerous witness against the president in other cases.
