“Mr. Trump has spent his career in the company of…grifters, cons, sharks, goons and crooks. He cuts corners, he lies, he cheats, he brags about it, and for the most part, he’s gotten away with it, protected by threats of litigation, hush money and his own bravado.” Not, apparently, much longer. “Mr. Trump now has real reason to be afraid. A raid on a lawyer’s office doesn’t happen every day.” In fact, it only happens when investigators have real “reason to believe they’d find evidence of a crime there and that they didn’t trust the lawyer not to destroy that evidence.”
