If true, the "investigators" in question are not the police and it may instead be that one reporter made some stuff up.

The White House wants him to resign rather than get fired, because it has implications for how he will be replaced.
Or, what GGG said.

Substantively, right now you have to discount both that one and Avenatti's until they turn a couple more cards. But just the fact that these are out there and playing in the media is hurting the Senate Rs and the White House badly right now, and their complaints come across as kind of whiny given the way they were getting press hits last week out of announcements like "we've made a call to Prof. Ford's lawyers and told them we'll give them two more hours."

He's slimy as hell, or, more accurately, as slimy as Grassley and McConnell, which is what makes it fun to watch. Kind of sick, but fun.
