WASHINGTON, DC. -  A SPECIAL counsel investigation into possible collusion between Russia and the 2016 presidential campaign of Donald Trump has already secured more than 30 indictments and guilty pleas and has spawned at least four federal probes.

But that is not all that Trump needs to worry about. With less than three weeks to go before they take control of the U.S. House of Representatives, Democrats are jockeying to lead overlapping investigations into the president.

Trump denies any collusion and has long denounced the investigation being led by Special Counsel Robert Mueller as a "witch hunt." Moscow has denied it interfered in the election.

Here are the various agencies or groups whose investigations pose a risk for Trump or are offshoots of Mueller's probe.

SPECIAL COUNSEL ROBERT MUELLER

Mueller was given a mandate to investigate any links or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the Trump campaign and "any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation."

Since his start in May 2017, Mueller has secured indictments against or guilty pleas from 32 people and three Russian companies, including former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and a troll farm in St. Petersburg, Russia that spread disinformation on social media ahead of the 2016 election.
