Fears spread to Europe, where Credit Suisse, Switzerland’s second-biggest bank, was forced to tap a financial lifeline from that nation’s central bank.
And then there’s the potential indictment of former President Donald Trump, perhaps as early as next week. This, as multiple investigations appear to be ramping up at the federal and state level.
