President Trump's former lawyer Michael Cohen will make public some of the president's private financial documents and tell Congress this week he witnessed "lies, racism and cheating" during a decade of working with Trump , the Wall Street Journal reports.

The WSJ, which hadn't seen the financial documents Cohen was set to produce, said he will "allege that Mr. Trump at times inflated or deflated his net worth for business and personal purposes, including avoiding paying property taxes."

President Trump's crackdown on TikTok suggests that the U.S. government is starting to see the internet more like China does — as a network that countries can and should control within their borders.

The big picture: Today's global internet has split into three zones, according to many observers: The EU's privacy-focused network; China's government-dominated network; and the U.S.-led network dominated by a handful of American companies. TikTok's fate suggests China's model has U.S. fans as well.
