Stunning CNN Graphic Captures the Full Scope of Investigations Into President Trump
CNN aired a stunning graphic Saturday morning that demonstrated the extent of the investigations into President Donald Trump‘s orbit.
They include: the Trump campaign, the Trump Transition, the Trump inauguration, the Trump administration, the Trump Foundation and the Trump Organization.
The CNN graphic could have been inspired by this equally stunning tweet from former Nixon White House counsel John Dean, who wrote that Trump’s scandals are “much more damning than Watergate,” and “just getting started.”
Trump’s campaign. Trump’s transition. Trump’s inauguration. Trump’s presidency. Plus Trump & family. All are now under state and federal criminal and civil investigations. This is much more damning than Watergate, and it is just getting started.

CNN’s New Day spoke with former chief ethics attorney for President George W. Bush, Richard Painter, about the current president’s metastasizing legal woes.
“The president has serious exposure to criminal liability on several fronts,” Painter said. He argued that it’s time for a “comprehensive plea agreement” from Trump.
“They could very well send him to prison for a very long time if he does not work this out,” Painter added.
