Trump has always been a good salesman, but a lousy businessman. He can generate hype with the best of them, but unlike P. T. Barnum, Trump never understood how to run a business at a profit. I can't remember how many bankruptcies he has gone through. He is extremely vulnerable to any persistent accountant who has subpoena power. Real estate deals in NYC are generally labyrinthine, but they are penetrable.

Right now, it feels like the Nixon years are back with the slow, drip, drip, drip building. It's not like they discovered the Watergate break in and Nixon resigned the next week. There was a long period where it seemed nothing was happening. Then there were those long slow moving hearings punctuated by remarkable revelations that seemed to go nowhere. Are you old enough to remember Operation Candor with that stack of hardcover bound reports supposedly exonerating the president? (Or am I conflating two separate incidents?)

I've always had a lot of respect for accountants. It was the accountants who got Al Capone.
