    New York Times: Tools of Trump's Fixer: Payouts, Intimidation and the Tabloids

    Tools of Trumpís Fixer: Payouts, Intimidation and the Tabloids

    As accounts of past sexual indiscretions threatened to surface during Donald J. Trumpís presidential campaign, the job of stifling potentially damaging stories fell to his longtime lawyer and all-around fixer, Michael D. Cohen.


    In August of that year, Mr. Cohen learned details of a deal that American Media had struck with a former Playboy model, Karen McDougal, that prevented her from going public about an alleged affair with Mr. Trump. Mr. Cohen was not representing anyone in the confidential agreement, but he was apprised of it by Ms. McDougalís lawyer, and earlier had been made aware of her attempt to tell her story by the media company, according to interviews and an email reviewed by The New York Times.

    Two months later, Mr. Cohen played a direct role in a similar deal involving an adult film star, Stephanie Clifford, who used the stage name Stormy Daniels, and who once said she had had an affair with Mr. Trump. Last week, Mr. Cohen said he used his own money for the $130,000 payment to her, which has prompted a complaint alleging that Mr. Cohen violated campaign finance regulations. Legal experts also have noted that the payment on behalf of his client may have violated New Yorkís ethics rules.

    NO it's not just hers, its everyone's problem. It was Melania's problem until he became president. And before he decided to give PUTIN a pass.

    Whose problem was Willy Clinton's dick being sucked on right in the White House office?

    .... and never mind years before he became president --- WHILE he was a president!

    Oh so this really is not a serious thread on your part..

    Just a way to bash Bill Clinton again - which is not even the topic of your own thread.

    ^ ^ ... Nope ... I post what's out there ... It's serious enough, cuz it made MSM.

    Bill Clinton's mention was simply to show that most of them at power / powerful people are the same ... most of them are pigs.

    P.S.

    And while we are mentioning Clinton again ... - we're not even going to bring up "his time / behavior as far as women are concerned, while being married" prior to the presidency.

    I'll wait till Mueller makes a connection between the whores and Russia. Trump and the whores, are so far Melania's problems.

    So ^ ^ ...

    I am discussing it and comparing current president to previous one(s).

    Don't see any problem with this ... and it's quite logical path in this discussion (for some of us anyhow).
