Release of the prepared opening statement for Congress by Michael Cohen, Donald Trump’s former lawyer, about Trump’s dishonesty and illegal acts has Trump losing sleep in Hanoi and blasting Tweets.


Here’s Cohen’s opening statement. The big stuff — dealing with Russians, for example, and Wikileaks — will get a lot of attention. But interesting too is Cohen’s testimony (and some supporting paper corroboration) of the extent to which Trump will grift — cheating businesses out of payments, arranging a straw buyer of a nine-foot painting of himself to buy with Trump Foundation money., threatening people who might release his school grades or college admission test scores.

Does he have a single redeeming quality? Evidence continues to be scarce.
