    Rudy didn't have his facts straight. Does he have them straight yet? I don't know.

    Trump says he paid off the porn star, even though they never had sex, and he didn't know he paid her off.

    Maybe, when Rudy finally gets his facts straight, we'll find out what really happened?

    The problem isn’t that Trump banged a porn star. He’s banged A LOT of women that aren’t his wife.

    The problem is that his fixer paid her $130k in the waning days of the election. This is likely a campaign finance violation.
    “If the purpose of this was to stop [Daniels] from hurting the campaign,” Noble continued, “then what you have is Cohen made a loan to the campaign. And it was an excessive loan because lending the campaign money is a contribution. It was an excessive contribution until it’s repaid.”
    All of that aside, there’s another issue. We learned from NBC in March that Cohen had finalized the payment to Daniels from his Trump Organization email address. In other words, he used corporate resources to engineer a contribution to Trump’s campaign — violating a prohibition against corporations “facilitating the making of contributions to candidates or political committees.”
    Trump then repaid him though some extremely sketchy means such as “funneling money through a law firm that bring other legal questions

    “Giuliani suggesting it was funneled through the firm as legal fees,” Noble said, “is evidence of an intent to hide the source, which could make it knowing and willful, which is criminal.” There could also be tax violations, he added.
    But to Giuliani’s central thesis — that the repayment meant that no campaign finance laws were broken — the law is fairly clear. If Cohen lent Trump $130,000 by making the payment to Daniels so that her story wouldn’t come out before the election, that loan would have had to have been reported.

    And it would have been reported before Election Day.

    Trump, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Cohen and other members of the Trump co. then lied repeatedly about it for months.

    President Trump knew Michael Cohen paid Stormy Daniels $130,000 in hush money for months before he denied any knowledge of the transaction to reporters in April.
    Sarah Huckabee Sanders said that Trump had no knowledge of the payments at a press briefing in March, and Trump himself told reporters the same story on Air Force One in April.

    It is an interesting coincidence that this payoff occurred just after the Access Hollywood tapes were made public.

    Campaign finance violations are no more serious than jaywalking when there isn't even any traffic around.

    At least, if you listen to Republicans these days.

    If that's what it was... Seems that people aren't even sure what the money was buying.

    The consensus seems to be that it was silence being bought, I lean the other way, he was paying her to talk... Not quite sure the venue or the topic.

    Stormy, she seems to have connections to it all... Saudis, Russians, NXIVM, who knows what other surprises....

    Seriously, I thought it was the republicans that were more associated with puritans.

    Not sure what the topic of debate is, but if I were anti-trump, I would be very cautious about opening that stormy Pandora's box. Once it's open, you may not like what is exposed.

    LOL. Now the TDS Squad has moved back to Stormy.

    Oddly enough it’s a pretty big story when the President’s new attorney goes on TV and admits that the entire administration has been lying to the face of the American people for months and that the President of the Unites States did indeed know about paying a porn star $130k in the waning days of the election to keep quite.

    The TDS crowd had no interest in campaign finance a few years ago.
