Given that the Manhattan District Attorney hired an organized crime specialist to help with prosecution, partnered with the New York Attorney General, and empaneled a grand jury just one month ago for a six month period to bring indictments, it’s pretty clear that today’s narrowly focused Trump Organization indictments aren’t going to be the only indictments.

But because the prosecutors running a criminal case aren’t in a position to lay out a roadmap for the public to know where the case is going, it leaves plenty of room for fretting and ratings-driven doomsday media hype: What if today’s indictments are the only indictments? What if it’s all over?

Former federal prosecutor Andrew Weissmann, who hasn’t always exactly taken an optimistic view of the criminal case against Donald Trump, tweeted this prediction today: “he charges brought today in Manhattan are the tip of the iceberg. Note DA request for a protective order to keep discovery close to the vest while investigation continues.”


The protective order in particular is notable, in that it makes clear that the criminal investigation is still very much ongoing. This comes even as New York Attorney General Tish James, who is helping to run this case, released a statement today confirming that it’s ongoing. Tip of the iceberg indeed.
