The last paragraph in Jeffrey Toobin's profile in The New Yorker of Michael Cohen who goes away to prison in a week:

'F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote, about the fictional Buchanan family, that they “smashed up things and creatures and then retreated back into their money or their vast carelessness, or whatever it was that kept them together, and let other people clean up the mess they had made.” For a decade, Michael Cohen cleaned up Donald Trump’s messes. He embraced Trump so uncritically that he wound up committing crimes on his behalf. Thus far, Trump, like the Buchanans, has escaped the wreckage he leaves behind.'

  1. Some people NEVER pay for their crimes.
    It proves that crime sometimes does pay off.
