Late last evening, the Washington Post broke this story. It really overshadows (trumps?) the White House buzz of earlier in the day. In yet another, and more definitive legal way, it places the 45th president in the cross-hairs of Obstruction of Justice. This is all in the Special Counsel's scope of the investigation of collusion with Russia to influence the 2016 election. The matter of dark issues and money laundering of Trump's financials, well that is just another plank of stink on a stick. The factual account of this story is exactly what Mueller will devour in his investigation:
