WASHINGTON (AP) — Donald Trump’s acquittal at his second impeachment trial may not be the final word on whether he’s to blame for the deadly Capitol riot.
The next step for the former president could be the courts.
Trump is now a private citizen and is stripped of his protection from legal liability that the presidency gave him.
The insurrection at the Capitol is just one of the legal cases shadowing Trump in the months after he was voted out of office.
He also faces legal exposure in Georgia over an alleged pressure campaign on state election officials, and in Manhattan over hush-money payments and business deals.
