It’s always been the business that worried Donald Trump. This was true during the presidential campaign, it was true during the transition, and it remains true now.
The president continues to waffle over what to do about special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe—fire Mueller? Fire Rod Rosenstein?—but for the moment, he seems content with bluster. As federal prosecutors in New York circle his longtime fixer Michael Cohen, however, Trump’s legal team has sprung into action, seeking the right to review and withhold documents seized from Cohen. Meanwhile, well-sourced reporters at The New York Times and Axios both say that Trump is much more rattled by the Cohen case than by Mueller’s investigation.
