There is no doubt that Michael Cohen knows where Donald Trump’s skeletons are hidden. As such, Cohen is dangerous for Trump. Cohen has little to nothing to offer the Mueller investigation that Mueller doesn’t already know or is pursuing. What Michael Cohen knows are the business secrets that Donald Trump wants to keep hidden.

Donald Trump is about subterfuge. He has spent a lifetime creating a false narrative about his business acumen and success. Cohen knows or has been involved in the many business shenanigans that Trump has done. Whether they are illegal, or simply stupid, these business skeletons are what Trump fears the most.

This is because the exposure of the secrets won’t only hurt Donald Trump, but it will go directly to his business dealings, which hurts his family and especially his children. It also hurts Donald Trump’s ego.

For someone like Donald Trump, ego is what drives him, and his own mind it is what defines him.

What Donald Trump fears the most is that people realize how his business facade is nothing more than a house of cards based on lies.

When it comes tumbling down so will Trump, his ego and his family’s future.

Keep an eye on Michael Cohen and how Trump responds to Cohen’s insinuation that his “family comes first.” Trump cannot have Cohen spilling the beans and thus Trump will take care of Cohen, or decimate him to make him irrelevant.
