Reporter Gives Detailed Explanation Why We Are In The ‘End Stages Of The Trump Presidency’
Is Donald Trump spending his final days at the White House? A new report certainly suggests so. New Yorker reporter Adam Davidson explains why in his new essay titled: “Michael Cohen and the End Stage of the Trump Presidency.”
Davidson says he now feels, “a familiar clarity about what will unfold next in the Trump Presidency.”
“Sure, many people have a vague sense of Trump’s shadiness, but once the full details are better known and digested, a fundamentally different narrative about Trump will become commonplace,” he writes. “Remember: we knew a lot about problems in Iraq in May, 2003. Americans saw TV footage of looting and heard reports of U.S. forces struggling to gain control of the entire country. We had plenty of reporting, throughout 2007, about various minor financial problems. Somehow, though, these specific details failed to impress upon most Americans the over-all picture. It took a long time for the nation to accept that these were not minor aberrations but, rather, signs of fundamental crisis.”
Davidson claimed that the difference will be made now that prosecutors are looking at the core of Trump’s corrupt business dealings.
“Cohen was the key intermediary between the Trump family and its partners around the world; he was chief consigliere and dealmaker throughout its period of expansion into global partnerships with sketchy oligarchs. He wasn’t a slick politico who showed up for a few months. He knows everything, he recorded much of it, and now prosecutors will know it, too,” he writes.
“[I]t seems likely that, when we look back on this week, we will see it as a turning point,” he writes.
