TL;DR

The guy was freaking out for the past two years about the Russia investigation. Michael CohenAccording to Mueller Trumps former lawyer Michael Cohen lied to Congress about the presidents business interests in Russia. Many of Trumps actions involved in the Russia investigation do seem ugly but an obstruction case would be very difficult. President Trump faced an unprecedented situation.
