17 Trump Investigations Include a 'Mystery'

Newser — John Johnson

Having trouble keeping track of the blizzard of headlines about investigations involving President Trump? A new list compiled by Garrett M. Graff of Wired might explain why: Graff tallies up no fewer than 17 separate investigations currently underway.

"Trump faces a legal assault unlike anything previously seen by any president," writes Graff, a sentiment the president would likely agree with, given his frequent railings about a "witch hunt." This isn't just Robert Mueller, however.

Graff counts seven different sets of prosecutors and investigators and lists the cases in New York, DC, and Virginia. Intriguingly, he also writes of a "Mystery Investigation Underway by Unknown Office."

The latter refers to redacted information revolving around Michael Flynn, which "could be one of the other investigations mentioned here, could represent another as-yet-unknown unfolding criminal case, or could be a counterintelligence investigation that will never become public," writes Graff.

He provides snapshots and status reports on all the investigations, from Russia's election meddling, to WikiLeaks, to taxes, to campaign finance irregularities, etc. "Potentially the biggest unseen aspect of Mueller's investigation is his year-long pursuit of Middle Eastern influence targeting the Trump campaign," writes Graff.
