“It was around this point that Cohen saw a congressman on cable news discussing Trump’s financials, and he remembered that he had some of those documents. Federal agents had seized them from his former office in Rockefeller Center last April as part of a criminal investigation by the Southern District of New York. The boxes they’d returned were in a storage unit in the basement of his Trump-owned building—incidentally, the same building where Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner keep an apartment. So he went down to look.” Vanity Fair’s Emily Jane Fox with some of the wild backstory leading up to Michael Cohen’s public testimony. (I guess it’s a good thing that Cohen prefers Storage Wars to Tidying Up with Marie Kondo.)

+ Vox: “President Donald Trump seems to believe he has a new line of defense in his rebuttal of Michael Cohen’s testimony: a book deal his former lawyer and fixer was previously shopping about his experiences in Trump’s orbit.”

+ This is all so weird. “Trump Tower’s condo board has made a deal with special counsel Robert Mueller’s office over who will pay Paul Manafort’s condo fees.”
