Watchdog group files complaint against Trump campaign over reported payout to Stormy Daniels

By Mark Berman January 22 at 4:29 PM


The confidentiality settlement reportedly paid to an adult-film star who said she had an affair with Donald Trump years before he became president may have violated campaign finance laws, a watchdog group alleged Monday.

In a pair of federal complaints, Common Cause, a nonprofit government watchdog group, argued that the settlement amounted to an unreported in-kind contribution to Trump's campaign. The group called on the Justice Department and Federal Election Commission to investigate.

These complaints focused on the Wall Street Journal's report earlier this month that Trump's longtime personal attorney, Michael Cohen, negotiated a secret $130,000 payment toStormy Daniels, the porn star, not long before the presidential election in 2016. The Washington Post has not independently verified that settlement, which is said to have been finalized as Trump was facing numerous accusations of sexual misconduct from women during the final weeks of the campaign.

How delicious. He's paid off the porn queen with campaign donations. How typical. Except that porn queens are rarely paid to keep their mouths shut!

They got him now!

Wait, I heard he'd be gone before the end of 2017, Pence too, from an old time lefty named Jonathan Schwartz who used to be on the radio at WNYC and nationally on the Jonathan Channel. Funny thing, Schwartz was gone before the end of 2017, fired for repeatedly making for an unsafe/unfriendly work environment, and this after repeated warnings to behave.

Then I read here about Trump being gone by January 20, 2018.

So, you don't have a problem with him laundering money to pay off a porn star? Well, maybe you'll finally come around when it's shown he has laundered money through Kazikstan. *shrug*
