Running for president, fighting in court? How fraud lawsuit could complicate Trump's plans

1 min read

  • Donald Trump ponders another presidential run in 2024 while facing an array of investigations.
  • This week, the New York attorney general sued Trump over fraud allegations.
  • Trump’s legal woes will “be in the news over and over again,” said Andrew Weissmann, a prosecutor on the Russia probe.
  • But former Trump AG Bill Barr disagreed. “I don’t think it’s going to hurt him,” Barr said.

WASHINGTON – Now that the New York attorney general sued Donald Trump for fraud, one thing seems nearer certainty: If Trump runs for president again in 2024, he will do so while defending himself in a court of law.

Maybe several courts of law.

The long-running panoply of investigations into Trump – over his business practices, his handling of classified information, his efforts to overturn his election loss in 2020, and his role in the insurrection of Jan. 6, 2021 – will burden any 2024 presidential run by the former chief executive, analysts said.
