“Given my experience working for Mr. Trump, I fear that if he loses the election in 2020 there will never be a peaceful transition of power,” said his former fixer Michael Cohen a year ago, as he was testifying to Congress. Others feared the same.
“He’s not going to respect the election,” said Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.
