When he packs up his belongings and leaves the White House in January, outgoing US President Donald Trump may be facing a legal reckoning like no other.
Mr Trump is currently facing several investigations investigating alleged fraud as a private citizen in his financial business dealings-both as an individual and through his business.
He also faces defamation litigation caused by his denials of allegations made by women who have alleged he raped them including E Jean Carroll, the former columnist of a magazine.
And then there are allegations that he, for his own profits, manipulated the presidency.
As president , Mr. Trump was able, in part because of his official position, to block and postpone some of these investigations and lawsuits-including a year-long dispute over a subpoena for his tax returns.
