President Donald Trump appears to have weathered the Mueller probe. Now he has to contend with the Strauss investigation.

Audrey Strauss, named the No. 2 federal prosecutor in Manhattan at the end of last week, inherits some of the most perilous remaining investigations into Trump now that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation has wrapped up.
