I'd like to be the first to ask, "What did Trump know about the Pecker-Bezos extortion attempt, and when did he know it?" Hard to believe Trump never asked his pal Pecker if anything damaging could be found on his nemesis Bezos, given the nature of the Trump-Pecker relationship.
1/ The kicker: not only is this something Trump would be involved in, as he daily demonstrates that no one and nothing can stop his pathological penchant for committing crimes—e.g. Obstruction and Witness Tampering—but Pecker's *cooperating with the feds*, so they can access him.
2/ With *any other criminal* you'd say, "Well, surely they'll be on their best behavior while under investigation!", but Trump (a) is pathological, (b) believes his position as president affords him immunity, and (c) has a *history of committing crimes* while under investigation.
3/ That this story could involve the Saudis—who we know the Trumps agreed to collude with on August 3, 2016; and who (Mueller appears to believe) illegally funneled money to the Trumps in January 2017 at the very latest; and for whom Trump is now covering up a murder—I mean, wow.
4/ I'm not saying we know what happened here, I'm saying all the pieces are in place for this to become every bit as big of a scandal—and possible indictment—involving Trump and/or his associates as the Stormy Daniels affair, the Karen McDougal affair, and other ongoing outrages.
5/ While I think it's readily overstated, it's certainly true that Trump faces a unique sort of danger from SDNY or state-level prosecutions that's different in kind from what he faces at the hands of Bob Mueller—simply because he *theoretically* could try to fire/hamper Mueller.
