There’s a lot of understandable buzz about two and a half articles published yesterday tied to President Trump’s finances and the Russia probe. The half we’ve already discussed, the news about presidential confidant Tom Barrack. The others are a detailed piece about Michael Cohen’s finances in the Times and a fascinating reconstruction of Trump’s post-2006 finances in the Post.

I’m gratified to note that the Cohen article in the Times mainly contains information you’ve found here in various articles at TPM over the last year. But there are important new details which are well worth your time to read. Let me start by noting a few broad brush takeaways from each article and how they may intersect.
