The most obvious question: there's a big mismatch here between Trump's net assets/net income versus the scale of his all-cash outlays. Does Trump have undeclared silent business partners in his post-2006 acquisitions? If so … who? https://t.co/I02FDD7TiA

WALL STREET JOURNAL: Manhattan Federal prosecutors and the FBI are probing why Michael Cohen took out a line of credit to secure $774,000 as the 2016 campaign heated up.
TRANSLATION: Donald Trump’s “fixer” was doing a little more than just paying hush money to Stormy Daniels.

There must have been multiple FEC violations that justified the FBI raids

COHEN received from TRUMP or acquired himself $1.24 million during the last 90 days of the 2016 election—only $130,000 of which went to DANIELS.
The STEELE dossier says (1) COHEN was running TRUMP-Russia coordination, and (2) the operation COHEN was running paid off the hackers. pic.twitter.com/f7Abo9swHa

AND, much of that money comes from billing the US Government for facilities, hotel rooms, food, golf carts, etc, etc. The US Gov has been turned into Trump's piggy bank.

How much does Trump's stupidity protect from the charge of lying? The media believe motive is an essential element of the act of lying. But if the liar is also a moron, how to tell if he is lying or just a complete idiot who doesn't know the true facts?
