Presidential Sound Bites
President Trump's recent declaration, "I don't do coverups," goes well beyond the normative statement of an earlier Republican president, "I am not a crook." One tape recording undid Nixon; the abundant evidence that will be forthcoming from Congressional subpoenas will bring down Trump. What we have learned so far is that Trump is a terrible negotiator and a failed entrepreneur. We are now learning that he does do coverups, many of them. He's just not very good at concealing them. Despite his stone-walling tactics, eventually the truth will come out: it always does.
