This lawsuit is only the latest of mounting legal troubles for Trump. While the Trump Organization has repeatedly sought to stall and settle the investigation - even stooping to odd accusations of reverse racism - there is no stopping the tremendous heap of trouble that Trump, his family, and his businesses will face.
The hyper-political nature of this lawsuit couldn't be clearer, as Letitia James campaigned on her desire to go after Trump, harassed him and his family for years, and has now followed through on her promise. She once claimed Trump's presidency was "illegitimate" - now she's embarking on a blatant witch hunt.
There's a 37% chance that any US court will rule that Donald J Trump is disqualified from holding the presidency before January 20, 2025, according to the Metaculus prediction community.
