Threat of investigations hangs over Clinton and Trump ?

At The Hill by  Ben Kamisar

No matter who wins the White House on Tuesday, the next president is likely to enter office under the threat of investigation by the rival party.

Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are both deeply polarizing figures unlikely to enjoy a period of goodwill from the other side of the aisle.

Multiple Republicans this week have predicted impeachment could be on the table if Clinton wins, a possibility Trump has mentioned in a late effort to boost his bid for the White House.

And while Republicans are likely to control at least one chamber of Congress next year, Democrats would almost certainly seek to launch their own inquiries into Trump, should he triumph on Tuesday.
“The climate the atmosphere, the vitriolic nature of our politics does not change on Nov. 9,” warned one former top Democratic House staffer.
