Struggling to keep track of all the civil and criminal cases against Trump?
Follow along with this interactive chart inspired by Joyce Vance's CIVIL DISCOURSE column "If you’re like me, sometimes you probably feel as if you need a color-coded wall like Carrie in “Homeland” to keep them all straight, and that’s just the criminal cases, because there are a plethora of civil ones too."
Follow the cases, money, luxury trips, extremist MAGA Supreme Court justice corruption, billionaires with this interactive chart. Who were the justices appointed by Trump? Financial dealings of Supreme Court justice spouses? The millions spent by Leonard Leo to stack the Supreme Court with extremist MAGA justices?
Four Trump civil and criminal cases
- The federal election fraud case brought by Special Counsel Jack Smith in Washington, D.C.—Trump is the sole defendant
- Manhattan DA case connected to the Stormy Daniels bribe
- The Mar-a-Lago case
- Fulton County, Georgia
"It’s a lot to keep our eyes on and to keep straight, but we’ll do our best to understand not only the individual cases, but how they influence each other. It’s clear that they do—for instance, the courts evaluating the gag orders in the D.C. case and the New York civil fraud trial each took notice of the gag order in the other case when evaluating the one in front of them.
The more Trump tries to single out and minimize each prosecution, the more important it is for us to understand them as a whole, and to appreciate that the man who wants to return to the White House faces 91 criminal charges, at the same time that his New York real estate business is on the verge of being dissolved because of persistent fraud, and as he prepares to go to trial a second time in a matter where a civil jury found against him in a case alleging sexual assault. That’s the measure of the man." - Joyce Vance
Data visualization for democracy
It's hard to track so many cases with so many crimes and dark money flowing in the background. Data visualization fights the 'Too Much Information" (TMI) syndrome.

TakeAway: Pay attention to Trump's cases and the money influencing the extremist Supreme Court Justices who will decide some of the cases. Democracy dies in darkness. Data visualization is a spotlight.
