People do need to know whether their president is a crook. Fortunately for us today, we already know the answer. President Donald Trump is a crook, and obviously so.

We have known this for a long time. We know, for instance, that his Trump University was a scam. We know that he is notorious for ripping off the sort of working-class Americans he claims to champion. Thanks to Pulitzer Prize-winning reporting from The Washington Post's David Fahrenthold, we know that his frequent talk of big charitable donations was rarely matched by actual charitable donations, and that he misused his own charity's money to make legal fights go away. This crooked behavior has not abated since Trump became president. Since his inauguration, he has spent taxpayer money to make 362 visits to his own Trump-branded properties. In a development that was loudly predicted by many before his election, Trump hotels and other properties have become go-to destinations for foreign officials looking to put money in Trump's pocket in the hopes of some positive attention from the Dear Leader.
