Swamp Notes: Trump’s legal troubles

Former US President Donald Trump is the subject of four criminal cases and several civil suits. That means the presumptive Republican nominee will be spending a lot of time in courtrooms ahead of voting day in November. Still, it looks like all these legal liabilities might be giving him a political boost. The FT’s US legal and defence correspondent, Stefania Palma, and US managing editor, Peter Spiegel, join this week’s Swamp Notes to explain why.
