Listen to John Avlon as he lists the many, many ethics investigations that permeate the Trump administration.

There have been so many, they all seem to fade into the distance -- until you're reminded. Avlon concludes:

"Now with the new class of Democrats heading to Washington with investigative powers and the ability to release his tax returns, all of this could get a whole lot worse for Team Trump. We have never had a president under this much scrutiny. It's not because it's a partisan witch hunt, which the president says.

"The investigations seem like proof the tone comes from the top -- and no amount of rage-tweeting will change that."

Can you help us out?
