The Cohen Searches and Trump’s De Mini-Mess

Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review

This particular scandal was not caused by the Russia investigation, much as Trump seems determined to conflate the two. It is not the work of Bob Mueller, Jeff Sessions, or Rod Rosenstein. None of them had anything to do with the porn star going public. It was Trump’s conduct that caused this mess; it was the hare-brained scheme to cover up the mess that brings us to this pass. Trump doesn’t do contrition. That approach has taken him a long way, but I don’t think it will serve him well on this one.
