Multiple legal experts are weighing in with their take on the chances of former President Donald Trump being indicted following the Federal Bureau of Investigations' (FBI) recent search of his Mar-a-Lago property.

According to a new report published by Business Insider, "people who have been close to his inner circle told Insider that they think he could be in serious legal trouble. In addition to reputable law firms' apprehension about representing the former president amid his mounting legal woes, there are other reasons why law firms are reportedly hesitant to work with Trump and his team.

"One lawyer familiar with the Trump team's thought process said in an interview that the ex-president 'likes to run the show' and is a 'big believer in the public relations assault,' but that he could soon face criminal charges," the news outlet also reported.

Although Trump typically appears to be unphased by the investigative probes, the lawyer insisted that he should be concerned about the mounting legal woes.

"He should be worried about all these investigations," the lawyer added. "I think he's a target of all of them and I think he'll get indicted."

While Trump is facing several federal and state investigations, the U.S. Department of Justice's inquiry is the case currently at the forefront as investigators work to determine if the former president violated laws by removing government documents when he departed the White House in January 2020.

Per Insider, Trump is also a focal point in the justice department's "sprawling criminal investigation into events surrounding the Capitol riot and subpoenaed a number of former top White House officials in recent weeks. Prosecutors have also subpoenaed the National Archives for all the White House records it turned over to the House select committee investigating the January 6 attack."

Trump is also facing a criminal investigation in Fulton County, Ga., but his former impeachment lawyer Alan Dershowitz has said that he is more concerned about the Trump Organization investigation being conducted by New York Attorney General Letitia James.

"Right now it's only civil, but you never know," he said. "Civil can always morph into criminal the way it did with Weisselberg."
