More jeopardy for Trump may come from legal actions by state attorney generals, especially in New York, than from Mueller. At present there are 51 multi-state lawsuits against the Trump administration including New York where it has led the group. They do not answer directly to William Barr and unlike Mueller can’t be fired by the president and investigations of Trump-linked interests could dog the president, his family and his associates for years, including after his departure from office.
The state’s financial fraud laws give the attorney general “incredible power” to demand documents and records, said one commentator. “New York is in a unique position to lead a lot of these investigations. Number one, they have the resources to take Trump on, and number two, they have the location where Trump is potentially most legally vulnerable.”
“Trump has decades of complex and shady business deals that make for a target-rich environment,” said Eric Soufer, a senior counsel.
Leading the pack is the new AG for New York Letitia James, 18 October 1958, who is a Sun Venus in Libra, a sign much connected with the law and justice, with a fearsomely determined and courageous as well as ruthless Mars in combative Gemini square Pluto.
Her Saturn in Sagittarius sits exactly on top of Trump’s Moon exactly and opposition his Sun and Uranus so she’ll have a dampening effect on his morale as her criticisms hit home; with her Pluto conjunct his Ascendant threatening to take the shine of his image.
Their relationship chart has a power-struggling composite Sun Pluto conjunction. And an explosive Mars Uranus in a nerve-wracked square to Neptune which is being heavily restricted by transiting Saturn hard aspects through this year; with more discouragement from tr Saturn square the composite Jupiter in 2020. Though the truly major upheavals don’t come until 2023 onwards when tr Uranus moves to square the composite Pluto Sun.
Trump does look deflated about his finances as if he’s lost his mojo with tr Saturn square his 2nd house Jupiter on and off till late this year; with a major panic attack on the cash front come late 2021 when his Solar Arc Saturn is conjunct his Neptune. 2021/22/23 are years which will see tr Neptune square his Moon and then his Sun which will be a longish phase of uncertainty and low morale.
Letitia James herself looks under considerable pressure for the next three years and isn’t winning as much as she’d hoped.
The other legal warrior now in charge of the federal investigation into Trump’s business and campaign finances in SDNY is the new Number Two prosecutor Audrey Strauss, 7 October 1947, who is hugely experienced and cut her teeth working on the Independent Counsel’s staff on the Iran-Contra scandal. She’s an even more ferociously determined Sun Neptune in Libra with Saturn Pluto conjunct as well as Mars in Leo. Her Uranus is conjunct Trump’s Sun and opposition his Moon so she’ll be an unsettling force; and her heavyweight Leo planets all fall in his 12th midway between his Mars and Pluto, so it’ll be a battle royal.
Their relationship chart has a fight-to-the-death composite Sun Mars Pluto with Pluto conjunct Saturn – that starts to rock n roll from this July onwards for several years ahead.
