Donald Trump held his first post-presidential ‘campaign style’ rally on June 26 in Ohio. If this sort of gathering is your thing, you better make plans on attending the next one, scheduled for July 3 in Sarasota, Florida. Or another one coming soon, assuming Trump’s mounting legal troubles don’t sweep him off the public stage first.

Prosecutors are expected to indict the Trump Organization and Trump’s longtime Chief Financial Officer, Allen Weisselberg as early as this week. Anticipated charges include tax and insurance fraud. Additional indictments, including one for the ex-president, are likely to follow.

Yet to be officially heard from are prosecutors in the District of Columbia, where an investigation is underway for inauguration-related charges and in Georgia for false voting election fraud claims. Trump’s unbridled efforts to overturn the 2020 election results in the Peach State may lead to criminal charges.

The indictment of the Trump Organization could be the worst development for Trump other than a personal indictment. Banks and other lenders are likely to run for the hills. Bankruptcy could follow.
