* Editor’s note: Donald Trump is the first President to be impeached twice and now the first to have his own company criminally indicted and the company’s CFO. Add these to the long list of other Trump associates who have been indicted, i.e. Manafort, Flynn, Stone, etc..

“As important as the relevant details are, it’s worth pausing to appreciate the bigger picture. Trump’s “university” was exposed by law enforcement as a fraudulent operation. His 2016 political operation saw many of its top leaders convicted of felonies. His inaugural committee faced criminal probe. His charity was also exposed as a fraudulent operation. He’s currently facing criminal investigations in two states.

And now, Trump’s core business has been indicted, too,” quoting CNN.
