Here’s the thing about being under investigation for overlapping crimes in multiple jurisdictions. Once you cut a plea deal in one jurisdiction and confess to your crimes in the process, it puts you in a situation where you pretty much have to also cut deals with all the other prosecutors. Otherwise they could just nail you with the confession you gave in the first district.

Kenneth Chesebro recently pleaded guilty in Fulton County and agreed to testify against Donald Trump and the other co-defendants. So it’s not surprising to read in the Washington Post that Chesebro is now also cooperating with prosecutors in Arizona and Nevada. Realistically he doesn’t have a choice.

What is interesting is that this all but confirms that prosecutors in Arizona and Nevada are at least looking at criminally charging Donald Trump. After all, why bother to bring in a top Trump lieutenant like Chesebro, unless you’re targeting Trump?

These criminal cases don’t guarantee that Trump will end up being charged in those states. State law is different in every state, so something that makes for an easy conviction in one state might make for a much more difficult to prove case in another state. We’ve seen this, for instance, with Georgia’s unusually thorough RICO laws.

But this underscores that Donald Trump’s four current criminal cases are just the beginning of his legal troubles. Earlier this week Arizona criminally indicted two election officials who tried to block the certification of the 2022 election results. It’s not a far stretch at all to expect this process to work its way backward to the 2020 election as well – and to the person (Donald Trump) who led that 2020 election plot.
