Although the FBI raided the office, home, and hotel of Trump’s personal lawyer and fixer, Michael Cohen, he may not be the most vulnerable person in Trump’s network of lawyers that the special counsel's investigation is threatening to expose, Bloomberg’s Timothy O’Brien writes.

The reality: Jason Greenblatt, a lawyer specializing in real-estate law and joined the Trump Organization in 1997, has been Trump's true in-house counsel, reports O'Brien, signing off on “almost every significant deal.” And Allen Weisselberg, the organization’s chief financial officer, has also played a similar role with the company’s finances.

Why it matters: Mueller has already subpoenaed Trump Organization’s business records.

Their current roles:

  • Greenblatt left the Trump Organization in 2016 after Trump made him a special representative for international negotiations.
  • Weisselberg has stayed on and works with Trump’s sons to manage the business.

The bottom line, per O’Brien: The two “almost certainly have more expansive information on the president's business activities than Cohen does…the investigation may require far more time to progress and reveal itself than the media and other observers think — even if recent events make it feel like the end is near.”

America on edge as unrest rises

Rarely have national security officials, governors, tech CEOs and activists agreed as broadly and fervently as they do about the possibility of historic civil unrest in America.

Why it matters: The ingredients are clear for all to see — epic fights over racism, abortion, elections, the virus and policing, stirred by misinformation and calls to action on social media, at a time of stress over the pandemic.

The long-term pain of the mental health pandemic

A less visible but still massive trauma caused by the coronavirus is becoming clear: our mental health is suffering with potentially long-lasting consequences.

Why it matters: Mental health disorders that range from schizophrenia to depression and anxiety exert a severe cost on personal health and the economy. Addressing that challenge may require out-of-the-box solutions.
