Investigations of ex-President Donald Trump over business practices, classified documents, elections and Jan. 6 will dog any 2024 presidential run.

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.

Investigations of ex-President Donald Trump over business practices, classified documents, elections and Jan. 6 will dog any 2024 presidential run.

"The 2022 mid-terms are a test case" for the impact of Trump's legal difficulties, said David Paleologos, director of the Suffolk University Political Research Center.Rep.By September 21, 2022 at 7:46 pm EDT By The Associated Press September 21, 2022 at 7:46 pm EDT NEW YORK — (AP) — Donald Trump and his company could face a range of stiff penalties if a court sides with New York's attorney general in a sprawling fraud lawsuit filed against the former president Wednesday.(CNN) Read the filing:.

In Ohio – a key , red-leaning state in most presidential elections – only 26% of independents have a favorable view of Trump, Paleologos said."He's always had to fight for independents," Paleologos said., speaks during a rally to promote the importance of school choice as part of "National School Choice Week," in Russell Building on January 18, 2018."The investigations don't help him.Trump's legal team contends that his financial practices were normal in the real estate industry and that James is waging an unfair political vendetta." 'No Way' A number of people question how Trump could run a credible presidential candidacy while tied up in court, especially if he is hit with criminal indictments."Schools should be focused on teaching the basics, and stop.whose congressional testimony led to the James investigation over property valuations, said he always doubted there will be another Trump presidential campaign and said he thinks Trump only talks about it in order to raise money.

"I never thought he was going to run in 2024, and that this was a stunt in order to grift off of his supporters for as long as possible," said Cohen, a one-time confidante who has since turned on his former boss.These key messages resonate with voters, regardless of demographic, Messer added.James wants Trump to forfeit that amount, but the actual dollar figure would be determined at trial.Given the James lawsuit and the other investigations, Cohen said he just doesn't see how Trump can mount a presidential campaign, or how voters could take him seriously.Cohen said:"There is no way he could legitimately run a race with all of the legal baggage that is plaguing him.Messer argued it is teachers unions, not voters, who oppose school choice." Grand juries investigating Trump aren't expected to take any formal action against the ex-president before this year's Election Day on Nov.This would be a blow to Trump, whose company is based in New York, but wouldn't necessarily bar him from starting new companies in other states.8."What I believe is this issue is one of the fundamental issues in reshaping the new American majority.

"It certainly gives him an incentive to fight back," he said.".Republicans point out the investigations may not loom as the biggest issues facing voters when Republican primaries roll around in early 2024 – especially if the economy continues to struggle.The inflation rate, for example, has been hovering near a 40-year high, squeezing Americans on everything from rent to the cost of eggs.This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed without permission.There's also the fact that Trump survived any number of scandals on his way to the White House the first time, said Liz Mair, an anti-Trump Republican political consultant."The problem with Donald Trump," Mair said,"is that he doesn't operate in the same reality as everybody else.
