The new president is getting his own problems, as he faces an administration already beset by accusations of incompetence and corruption.
Here’s what you need to know about what’s happening and what the next steps are for the White House.
The new Trump administration is already besetting with accusations of corruption and corruption charges.
In addition to the ongoing probes into his business dealings, Trump has been under scrutiny by Congress for his role in a failed real estate deal.
The president is under criminal investigation by the Department of Justice, according to the New York Times, which said the investigation has not revealed any wrongdoing on the part of the president or his family members.
Two weeks ago, the president was asked about his business ties during an interview with CBS’s “Face the Nation.”
“I’ve been very involved in real estate,” he said.
“I know people in real life, but they don’t know it’s a very big deal.”
The New York Post reported earlier this month that Trump is the subject of a criminal investigation into his relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin and is under scrutiny for his business holdings.
The White House said the president will be interviewed by special counsel Robert Mueller on Friday, but did not say if he was asked to appear in person.
Mueller’s investigation into the Trump campaign is ongoing, and he has asked Trump to provide documents related to his businesses.
The New Yorker reported in May that Mueller is also investigating Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, who was involved in a controversial Trump Tower meeting with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.
The Trump White House denied that Kushner is under investigation, but later confirmed the meeting with Kislyak occurred.
The investigation into Trump and his business empire is expected to continue.
The Washington Post reported on Friday that Mueller has also asked Trump for documents related the Russia probe, but didn’t say if that’s what the president is asking for.
Mueller has already subpoenaed documents from Trump’s businesses, including the Trump International Hotel in Washington.
Trump has said he’ll turn over documents from his hotels and golf clubs, but has not provided them to Mueller yet.
Trump’s business empire will likely face legal challenges.
Trump is already facing multiple lawsuits over the Trump Tower project, and the Trump Organization has filed a motion to dismiss one of them.
That lawsuit is still pending, but the suit says Trump’s company failed to disclose a key financial condition in its financial statements for the project.
In February, a judge ruled in favor of Trump in a case brought by a former Trump business associate, and said the lawsuit is “not frivolous.”
The court also said Trump’s lawsuit against the Trump company is not a “frivolous” action.
Trump will likely appeal the ruling, but it could take years before the matter is resolved.
Mueller is expected on Friday to ask Trump to produce documents relating to his investments in the Trump hotel and other real estate properties.
“In his deposition with the special counsel, Mr. Trump acknowledged that he had invested in real properties and that his company had made investment in real property, but he has not produced any documents or evidence to support this statement,” according to court filings.
“Therefore, this case does not merit further investigation.”
The Justice Department is investigating the president’s business ties and ties to Russia.
On Thursday, a federal judge ruled that the Justice Department will begin its investigation into President Trump’s dealings with Russian officials.
Federal prosecutors are investigating whether the president and his associates colluded with Russian intelligence to influence the 2016 presidential election, and whether Trump violated the Emoluments Clause, a 1789 law that bars the president from accepting gifts from foreign governments.
A lawyer for Trump’s lawyers said the President is reviewing the ruling and intends to appeal.
A federal judge in Washington, D.C., has already ruled that Trump has the right to challenge the decision in court.
“The question is whether the President can exercise his First Amendment rights and assert an argument that he can’t use the court process,” U.S. District Judge Jed Rakoff wrote in a ruling last month.
Rakoff said Trump could use the case to challenge Mueller’s subpoenas and other government actions.
“Whether the Court finds that the President cannot assert this argument in a court proceeding is one question that cannot be answered in a timely manner,” Rakoff added.
“But we do not find that the question is so moot as to justify the delay.”
The latest White House controversy comes after a tumultuous first few weeks.
Trump was criticized by Senate Democrats and Democrats in the House for refusing to publicly release his tax returns, and also sparked outrage when he said he would not release his personal financial information.
He later agreed to release his returns.
