To help keep me from thinking you are lying, exactly what crime(s) is Trump being investigated for?
It is reasonable to conclude that the following is being investigated:
“The question can no longer be whether the President and those closest to him broke the law. That is settled. Three of the people closest to Trump as he ran for and won the Presidency have now pleaded guilty or have been convicted of significant federal crimes: Michael Cohen, Paul Manafort, and Michael Flynn. The question now becomes far narrower and, for Trump, more troubling: What is the political impact of a President’s criminal liability being established
in a federal court? How will Congress respond? And if Congress does not act, how will voters respond in the midterm elections?”
“Being investigated” does not imply being charged or found guilty.
