Cohen Lies vs. Dem Crimes with NO Accountability

The big news on Thursday is President Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen has pled guilty – WAIT FOR IT – to lying. What prosecutorial team snagged Cohen? Special Persecutor Robert Mueller and his team of Crooked Hillary supporting Prosecutors.

Published on Nov 29, 2018

 

I don’t watch, listen or read Mainstream Media News so I can only imagine how Cohen’s guilty plea propagandized their sheeple the plea will lead to imminent impeachment of President Trump.

 

You should really view the more reasoned reporting on the Cohen Guilty plea that suggests Mueller’s indictments and guilty pleas have NOTHING TO DO with an alleged Trump/Russia collusion. It’s been two-years so you may have forgotten Mueller’s Special Counsel appointment was to investigate Trump for colluding with Russia to manipulate the 2016 Election to Trump’s favor.

 

If you did forget Mueller’s mandate be careful to whom you speak. You might get caught in a perjury trap by making statement dissimilar to anything you said two years ago.

 

NOW if Robert Mueller was actually serious about a candidate who paid for information to sway the 2016 election that involve a Russian source, he should LOOK to the Crooked Hillary campaign paying for the debunked Steele Dossier which was used by the Obama Administration to spy on the Trump campaign. Oh, I forgot the key point. Christopher Steele claimed his Dossier was sourced by – GASP! – the Russians.

 

Specifically what is Cohen pleading guilty to? Could it be facilitating Russian spying on Crooked Hillary? Nope. Again the Russia/Election 2016/American campaign axis is closer akin to Crooked Hillary’s agenda. Cohen pled guilty to lying to Congress about a Trump project to build a skyscraper in Moscow. A project, incidentally, Trump the table as his campaign for President began to pick up steam.

 

…  Cohen admitted he lied to Congress about key details in the negotiations for the Moscow tower, most notably that those talks stretched much deeper into the presidential campaign than previously thought, to June of 2016.

 

Trump, speaking to reporters Thursday, disputed Cohen’s timeline and suggested his former fixer was telling prosecutors what they wanted to hear to save his own skin. As for why the most recent deal failed, Trump said he made the decision because he was focused on on [sic] running for president.”

 

 

But according to Cohen’s new statement to prosecutors, the tower deal remained viable as late as June 2016, after Trump had vanquished his Republican presidential rivals and was mounting his general election campaign against Hillary Clinton.  Cohen said he kept Trump, named as “Individual 1” in the plea, updated about the deal’s progress, and also “briefed family members of Individual 1 within the company about the project.” (Attorney’s plea caused by Trump’s dream of a Moscow tower; By STEPHEN BRAUN and BERNARD CONDON; Washington Times; 11/30/18)

 

In May 2016 Trump acquired the amount of delegates needed to win the GOP nomination and the GOP Convention made Trump’s nomination official in July 2016. The Dems and Leftist MSM are telling you that since Trump was still working the Moscow Trump Tower deal in June 2016, he must have been working with the Russians to win the election in November. THE ONLY THING CONFIRMING THAT ANTI-TRUMP THOUGHT IS LEFTIST WISHFUL THINKING!

 

The timing of securing the GOP nomination by late July led Trump to abandon the Trump Moscow Tower dream. That is a much closer correlation than a failed real estate deal in June 2016.

 

The irony about the Steele Dossier is the initial intelligence poop was initiated by Never-Trump Republicans. As it became evident Trump would win the nomination, the Never-Trump Republican funded terminated.

 

THEN the DNC began the funding in April 2016 which then tapped Christopher Steele in which the most egregious AND debunked accusations against Trump emerged as the infamous Steele Dossier. The DNC and the Clinton campaign expect gullible Americans to believe they knew/see nothing (shades of Sgt. Shultz) about where the info came from that they PAID FOR.

 

 

The Clinton campaign and the DNC are believed to have taken over the project in April 2016, once Trump became the nominee, and oversaw the compilation and completion of the dossier from there.

 

 

Who put it together?

 

The document was produced by Fusion GPS, a Washington strategic intelligence firm cofounded by former Wall Street Journal reporter Glenn Simpson in 2012.

 

In 2016, the firm hired Steele to dig into any connections between Trump, then a Republican presidential candidate, and the Russian government.

 

 

But it has attracted particular scrutiny for its work for a U.S. law firm that defended Prevezon Holdings, which until May was locked in a legal battle with the U.S. government over allegations the company’s executives fraudulently obtained a $230 million tax refund from the Russian treasury.

 

Also working the case defending Prevezon was Natalia Veselnitskaya, the Russian lawyer who attended the infamous Trump Tower meeting in June 2016 before which Donald Trump Jr. was offered damaging information on Hillary Clinton. Veselnitskaya is known for her work lobbying against the Magnitsky Act, a 2012 U.S. law aimed at punishing human rights abusers in Russia.

Mueller’s perjury trap faulty memory trick is hardly as relevant as the overt lies committed and given a pass by the Obama Administration led FBI and DOJ. I hope Americans wakeup to the injustice of Mueller tactics against all things President Trump and the actual crimes that Obama/Crooked Hillary Dems committed with absolutely zero consequences.

Spygate: The True Story of Collusion [Infographic]


I wish I count ML McCarren as a friend. But the truth is I’ve never met him or even know what he looks like. I gotta tell ya though, this guy finds some very informative stuff that I dare say the Mainstream Media will not share.

 

While looking around some G+ Communities I belong to, I came across a McCarren post on MAGA Conservative. Here McCarren has some info from The Epoch Times on a Deep State issue of Spygate.

 

The post at TET is huge but remarkably easy to comprehend.  Just as a tantalizer, here is a mural size photo from TET which is described as “Infographic”:

When you click to enlarge the photo, you can observe a mosaic of documented culprits trying to warp the U.S. Constitution by essentially ignoring it and pull out all and any stops to prevent a Trump Presidency OR remove Donald Trump from Office.

 

Below is McCarren’s summary which draws directly from The Epoch Times.

👉Although the details remain complex, the structure underlying Spygate — the creation of the false narrative that candidate Donald Trump colluded with Russia, and the spying on his presidential campaign — remains surprisingly simple:

 

1️⃣. CIA Director John Brennan, with some assistance from Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, gathered foreign intelligence and fed it throughout our domestic Intelligence Community.

2️⃣. The FBI became the handler of Brennan’s intelligence and engaged in the more practical elements of surveillance.

3️⃣. The Department of Justice facilitated investigations by the FBI and legal maneuverings, while providing a crucial shield of nondisclosure.

4️⃣. The Department of State became a mechanism of information dissemination and leaks.

5️⃣. Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign and the Democratic National Committee provided funding, support, and media collusion.

6️⃣. Obama administration officials were complicit, and engaged in unmasking and intelligence gathering and dissemination.

7️⃣. The media was the most corrosive element in many respects. None of these events could have transpired without their willing participation.

✔️Stories were pushed, ✔️facts were ignored, and ✔️narratives were promoted.

Let’s start with a simple premise: The candidacy of Trump presented both an opportunity and a threat.

Initially not viewed with any real seriousness, Trump’s campaign was seen as an opportunistic wedge in the election process. 💡At the same time, and particularly as the viability of his candidacy increased, Trump was seen as an existential threat to the established political system.

👉The sudden legitimacy of Trump’s candidacy was not welcomed by the U.S. political establishment. Here was a ✔️true political outsider who ✔️held no traditional allegiances. He was ✔️brash and boastful, he ✔️ignored political correctness, he ✔️couldn’t be bought, and he ✔️didn’t care what others thought of him—he trusted himself.

👉Governing bodies in Britain and the European Union were also worried. Candidate Trump was ✔️openly challenging monetary policy, ✔️regulations, and ✔️the power of special interests. He ✔️challenged Congress. He ✔️challenged the ✔️United Nations and the European Union. ➡️He questioned everything.

SO BEGINS THE ARTICLE.

The prospect that our Federal Government has become a self serving entity is not a pleasant thing to admit. We Americans are a proud people whose myraid accomplishments have benefited all of mankind. But if we are honest, we must acknowledge corruption as well. Just as in all aspects of society, good exists with the bad and our politicians (from both sides of the aisle) may be most susceptible of all.

The stakes are high.

This article details what may well be the greatest threat America has ever faced. It is a must read for everyone wishing to know the truth.

Let’s not forget this attack on the presidency has been orchestrated to circumvent the Constitution of United States and the will of the citizenry… [Blog Editor: Bold text mine]

💡Clinton Campaign and the DNC

The Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee both occupied a unique position. They had the most to gain but they also had the most to lose. 👉And they stood willing and ready to do whatever was necessary to win. Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager, Robby Mook, is credited with being the first to raise the specter of candidate Donald Trump’s alleged collusion with Russia.

💥The entire Clinton campaign willfully promoted the narrative of Russia–Trump collusion despite the uncomfortable fact that they were the ones who had engaged the services of Fusion GPS and Christopher Steele through their law firm Perkins Coie. Information flowed from the campaign—sometimes through Perkins Coie, other times through affiliates—ultimately making its way into the media and sometimes to the FBI. Information from the Clinton campaign may also have ended up in the Steele dossier.

Jennifer Palmieri, the communications director for the Clinton campaign, in tandem with Jake Sullivan, the senior policy adviser to the campaign, took the lead…
https://www.washingtonpost.com/posteverything/wp/2017/03/24/the-clinton-campaign-warned-you-about-russia-but-nobody-listened-to-us/?utm_term=.be79b30c359e

…in briefing the press on the Trump–Russia collusion story.

👉(The) statements, which were later proven to be incorrect, are all the more disturbing with the hindsight knowledge that it was a senior Clinton/DNC lawyer who helped plant the story. And given the prepared statement by Sullivan, the Clinton campaign knew this.

💥This type of behavior would be engaged in repeatedly—damning leaks leading to media stories, followed by ready attacks from the Clinton campaign.

Trump Scores Huge Victory Over Stormy


Well folks, I’ve been absent from blogging a few days. I’ll discuss the reason in another post, but for now I want to share the news that porn star Stormy Daniels (real name Stephanie Clifford) has lost her defamation suit against President Trump.

The reason the Daniels loss is important is the actual purpose for the suit was to embarrass President Trump and turn voters against him, particularly female voters. Which was especially telling when her creepy porn lawyer Michael Avenatti began drudging unreliable women that claim Justice Kavanaugh sexually assaulted them.

 

The Trump Train News (TTN) has details.

Take the Republican Focus Group Survey

 

A federal judge has tossed out a defamation suit against President Trump filed by Michael Avenatti on behalf of Stormy Daniels.

To make matters worse the judge ordered that Stormy has to pay the president’s legal fees.

According to The Daily Wire:

 

A federal judge tossed out a defamation lawsuit from porn star Stormy Daniels against President Donald Trump on Monday, saying that words used by the president in a tweet directed at Daniels constituted “‘rhetorical hyperbole’ normally associated with politics and public discourse in the United States.”

CNN noted that “Daniels sued Trump after he said Daniels’ story of a man threatening her not to come forward with her story of her alleged affair with Trump was ‘a total con job.'”

 

 

“The Court agrees with Mr. Trump’s argument because the tweet in question constitutes ‘rhetorical hyperbole’ normally associated with politics and public discourse in the United States,” District Judge S. James Otero wrote. “The First Amendment protects this type of rhetorical statement.”

 

In a statement, Trump’s attorney Charles J. Harder said: “No amount of spin or commentary by Stormy Daniels or her lawyer, Mr. Avenatti, can truthfully characterize today’s ruling in any way other than total victory for President Trump and total defeat for Stormy Daniels.”

 

 

Michael Avenatti hasn’t been getting many wins lately. He also brought forth some more than suspect clients who made accusations against Brett Kavanaugh. However, this may be his biggest loss yet. Not only did he lose, but he and his client now have to pay for the president’s attorneys [sic] fees.

Is there really a spy in the White House?


A word from Glenn Beck about the New York Times anonymous op/ed Trump-hater.

Is there really a spy in the White House?

 

By GLENN BECK, CEO/FOUNDER

September 6, 2018

GlennBeck.com

 

There’s a coward in the White House. A spy in the Trump administration wrote an Op-Ed in the New York Times yesterday that’s not only entirely gutless, but also proves everyone that has ever believed in the Deep State correct.

 

The spy wants everyone to know that:

 

It may be cold comfort in this chaotic era, but Americans should know that there are adults in the room.

 

The anonymous senior member of the Trump administration goes on to describe how bad the president is, and that he or she and a group of others from within the White House are trying to subvert him.

 

That is why many Trump appointees have vowed to do what we can to preserve our democratic institutions while thwarting Mr. Trump’s more misguided impulses until he is out of office.

 

How dare this person talk about preserving democratic institutions while, at the same time, actually admitting to undermining an elected official. I don’t care how virtuous their intentions are, these people were never elected! President Trump was. They and a good portion of the country may not like it, but that’s how the system works. This person has brazenly admitted to being part of an unelected guerilla movement within the government that’s secretly pursuing their own ideology, their own path for the country, and WE – the voters – never gave them our mandate. They operate with zero accountability.

 

I wonder if it ever occurred to this coward that they aren’t just subverting the president, they’re also subverting the 63 million Americans that voted for him. They may not like Trump and his policies, but is he really doing anything contrary to what he campaigned for? Everything that Trump has been saying and doing since he was elected is exactly why his supporters voted for him. It’s what they want. No one has the right to go behind his back and steer the country in a different direction.

 

This person, this anonymous senior official, probably feels pretty brave – and maybe even a little famous – this morning. But they’re a coward. If they’ve witnessed the President doing something unbecoming of the office or counter to what his voters would agree with, it is their responsibility to come forward the proper way. Show your face, make a public accusation and provide evidence. This is a disgrace.

President Trump May Declassify the 20 FISA Docs Congress Wants


After a so-called Trump Administration insider wrote anonymously at the NY Times claiming to be a part of the Leftist Resistance against President Trump, the President should do more declassifying of redacted documents than just 20 pages of a FISA warrant allowing the FBI to spy on Carter Page as reported by Sara Carter.

 

Kelly McLaughlin writing for Business Insider has a list to date of Trump Administration Officials who have DENIED being the identity of the anonymous Deep State Trump traitor. I suspect Attorney General  Jeff Sessions or some DOJ/FBI upper echelon Obama hold-over is my suspect. Glaringly, Sessions is not on the McLaughlin denial list.

 

Still, if Sara Carter is correct, declassifying the Carter Page FISA warrant is a good first step of swamp draining and sticking it to the Deep State perpetrating a coup against the duly and Constitutionally elected President Donald Trump.

President Trump May Declassify the 20 FISA Docs Congress Wants

 

By Sara Carter 

September 05, 2018 2:58 PM EDT

SaraCarter.com

 

President Donald Trump

 

President Trump is expected to declassify the redacted 20 pages of documents from the controversial Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant that have still not been made public, which allowed the FBI to spy on short-term campaign volunteer Carter Page, numerous sources told SaraACarter.com. This comes after nearly a year of stonewalling by the Department of Justice at the demand of lawmakers, who claim that the 20 redacted pages will reveal explosive information about the FBI’s handling of the Trump-Russia investigation, according to sources.

 

However, President Trump, who has been under pressure from some DOJ officials not to release the classified documents, “could always change his mind and it’s not a guarantee that it will happen, but the indications are that it more than likely will possibly be before the end of this week,” said a U.S. official, who spoke on condition of anonymity due to the sensitive nature of the subject.

 

In July, the Justice Department released over 400 previously top-secret documents connected to the Page warrant. However, more than 20 pages of the FISA document remained highly classified and have only been viewed by a select group of Congressional members and investigators. The lawmakers are now asking that those documents be made public. Behind the scenes, the battle between Justice Department officials and senior members of Congress intensified over the past year, leading lawmakers to call on President Trump to intervene and declassify the documents.

 

In a 38 minute interview with the Daily Caller Tuesday, President Trump said the White House is “looking at it very seriously right now because the things that have gone on are so bad, so bad. I mean they were surveilling my campaign. If that happened on the other foot, they would’ve considered that treasonous. They would’ve considered that spying at the highest level. Can you imagine if we were doing that to Obama instead of Obama and his people doing that to us? Everybody would’ve been in jail for the next 500 years. OK? Can you believe it, where they paid this guy millions of dollars, it turned out? If you look at all of the things that are happening.”

 

Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee Devin Nunes (R-CA) told Fox New’s [sic] Sean Hannity this month that the remaining classified documents regarding Page need to be declassified because “there is exculpatory evidence that we have seen of classified documents that need to be declassified. The judges should have been presented with this exculpatory evidence that the FBI and DOJ had.”

 

In July, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles Grassley (R- IA) also requested the declassification of embattled Department of Justice official Bruce Ohr, whose wife Nellie Ohr worked in 2016 as a contractor for the research firm Fusion GPS, which was paid by the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign to investigate Trump’s alleged ties to Russia.

 

“All these documents will expose how the FBI handled this investigation and give clarity to the public,” said one congressional official, who spoke on condition of anonymity. “The American people deserve to know the truth and our country needs to move on.”

 

The FISA documents, which were heavily redacted by the FBI and Department of Justice are expected to reveal detailed information showing that the bureau withheld exculpatory information from the highly secretive Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) and the role former British spy Christopher Steele had in getting his unverified anti-Trump dossier to the bureau. Steele was hired by Fusion GPS’s Glenn Simpson, a former Wall Street Journal reporter, to compile the dossier.

 

New documentation obtained by Congress are already revealing the deep ties Ohr had to Steele and the bureau. Recent texts, notes and emails obtained by Congress reveal that Ohr worked as a backchannel for the FBI to move information being collected by Steele to the FBI.

 

The documentation also exposes Ohr’s inter-workings with the FBI and that he was in communication with former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, former FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok and his paramour former FBI Attorney Lisa Page. Strzok was recently fired by the FBI and Page has since left the bureau. McCabe was fired earlier this year after DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz released a scathing report showing that McCabe lied on numerous times to investigators and leaked information to the media.

 

A recent report by Fox New’s [sic] Catherine Herridge also exposes Ohr’s ties in 2016 to Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel’s lead prosecutor Andrew Weissmann. Weissmann, who was then chief of the DOJ’s criminal fraud division, was “kept in the loop” by Ohr about his contact with Steele and the FBI, according to the report.

 

Earlier this year, SaraACarter.com revealed that before Weissmann was appointed to the Special Counsel, he arranged a meeting with AP journalists investigating Paul Manafort and his Ukrainian business dealings. On April 11, 2017 Weissmann, the AP reporters and several FBI officials Weissmann brought into the meeting met with the reporters.

 

On April, 12 the AP published the explosive expose on Manafort.

 

According to sources who spoke with this news outlet, the meeting was attended by three different litigating offices. Two employees from the U.S. Justice Department and the other representative was from the U.S. Attorney’s office, according to the sources. FBI agents also attended the meeting, law enforcement sources confirmed.

 

At the time Peter Carr, a spokesman for Mueller, and chief Justice Department spokeswoman Sarah Isgur Flores also declined to comment.

 

According to sources, FBI officials at the meeting complained about Weissmann’s failure to follow protocol with journalists. They issued a formal complaint against him to the Justice Department, as they were concerned the meeting with the journalists could harm the ongoing probe into Russia’s involvement in the 2016 presidential election.

Post & Video by Lance Wallnau

An evangelist friend of my wife sent a Facebook Private Message to her from a gentleman named Lance Wallnau who put together an 18-minute podcast about a conversation President Trump had with some evangelists about the possible negative effects of the November 2018 election.

 

After I viewed the video, I was so impressed that I decided to cross post it on my Blog. I was even going to upload it to my Youtube Channel to share more effectively.

 

I had zero knowledge of who or what Lance Wallnau was about. In the process of looking for Wallnau I discovered he posted his own Youtube version which I will share.

 

In case you are in the same boat as me, here is some bio info on Dr. Lance Wallnau:

 

USA Today reports that he is one of only three evangelical leaders to have accurately predicted Donald Trump’s Presidency while running against 15 opponents. Dr. Wallnau’s Best Selling book, “Gods Chaos Candidate” explains the global shift that accompanies Trumps unexpected electoral upset. God is working in new and unprecedented ways among the nations.

 

Dr. Wallnau has shared platforms with best-selling authors Ken Blanchard and John Maxwell, and lectured at universities from Harvard and M.I.T. to the London School of Theology. Merging a thirty-year background consulting in business and the non-profit sector, Lance inspires visions of tomorrow with the clarity of today—connecting ideas to action. His students represent a tapestry spanning nations and spheres: from politicians, to CEO’s, entertainers and entrepreneurs. He currently directs the Lance Learning Group, a strategic teaching and consulting company based in Dallas, Texas.

 

Dr. Wallnau’s is a frequent television guest and conference keynote speaker. Thousands of leaders around the world attest to the lasting impact of their first encounter with Lance. If you’ve never heard him before you should  join with thousands of others – just check out his regular broadcasts on Periscope and Facebook Live, under Lance Wallnau.

MorningStar Ministries also has a short author’s bio: HERE.

 

In case you are interest, HERE’s a link Lance Wallnau Facebook post of the video.

 

AND below is the LanceWallnau.com post of the Youtube video, “TRUMP DELIVERS PROPHETIC WARNING TO CHRISTIAN LEADERS!”

 

Dr. Wallnau delivers a referendum on Christian Free Speech and Religious Liberty. The last couple of minutes Wallnau shares that CNN and Carl Bernstein lied about a Trump foreknowledge that Trump JR. was to meet Russians in Trump Tower to gather dirt on Crooked Hillary.

Leftist Shark-fest over Manafort-Cohen Guilt Verdicts-Pleas

Yesterday guilty verdicts came to light against Paul Manafort and Michael Cohen, both have a connection to President Trump. If you were paying attention to the Leftist MSM you would think blood was in the water stirring a shark frenzy was erupting with bloodthirsty glee. They all believe Trump association to guilty parties means Trump’s Administration is about to come tumbling down.

 

The poor delusional Left are forgetting to report the guilty verdicts have ZERO to do with collusion between Trump and Russia to manipulate the 2016 election.

 

Manafort was found accused of 18 counts but the jury could only agree on eight counts of guilt:

 

In a verdict announced at the same hour as President Trump’s longtime fixer pleaded guilty to other financial charges, Manafort was convicted of filing a false tax return in each of the years from 2010 to 2014, failing to report a foreign bank account in 2012, and two counts of bank fraud.

 

 

But the panel of six men and six women deciding Manafort’s fate in Alexandria, Virginia, deadlocked on 10 counts. U.S. District Court Judge T.S. Ellis III declared a mistrial on those charges.

 

 

The 10 deadlocked charges were three instances of failing to file a foreign bank account in 2011, 2013 and 2014, two counts of bank fraud, and five counts of conspiracy to commit bank fraud.

Michael Cohen chose a guilty plea deal rather than face a jury:

 

Cohen pled guilty to eight felonies. While the five counts of failure to pay taxes on over $4 million in income are the most consequential to him, most significant to the country are two counts of illegal “in kind” campaign contributions. …

 

… The media narrative suggests that these payments violate federal law because they were made to influence the outcome of the election. That is not quite accurate. It was not illegal to pay hush money to the two women — Karen McDougal and Stephanie Clifford (a.k.a. “Stormy Daniels”). It was illegal for Michael Cohen to make in-kind contributions (which is what these pay-offs were) in excess of the legal limit. (Bold text by blog Editor)

So what’s the deal with the press? Why the shark-fest of glee? Could it be because the Left is planting Fake News against Trump to stir-up hatred to enhance future impeachment sentiment and plant more Dems in Congress for such a proceeding?

MUST SEE: Former Head of Federal Elections Says Cohen Payment IS NOT an In Kind Campaign Contribution (AUDIO)

The Gateway Pundit

 

Cohen-Trump

 

Conservative author and radio-TV host Mark Levin interviewed the former FEC Chairman on his show.

 

Professor Bradley Smith said the payment Cohen pled guilty to DO NOT qualify as campaign violations.

 

Last night Mark Levin interviewed a former FEC Chairman who explained why a hush money payment to Stormy Daniels cannot be considered an in kind contribution to the Trump campaign, thus violating campaign finance law.

 

Via The Right Scoop:

 

“When the FEC wrote the regulation that says what constitutes campaign expenditures and what constitutes personal use, it rejected specifically the idea that a campaign expenditure was anything related to a campaign, and instead says it has to be something that exists only because of the campaign and solely for that reason.”

 

Here’s the audio:

Professor Bradley Smith wrote about this in the Wall Street Journal in April.

 

Shortly before the 2016 election, one of President Trump’s lawyers, Michael Cohen, arranged a $130,000 payment to the porn star in return for silence about a 2006 affair she claimed to have had with Mr. Trump. (Both the president and Mr. Cohen have denied the affair; Mr. Trump has said he did not know of the payment to Ms. Daniels until this February.)

 

Not satisfied with an old-fashioned sex scandal—perhaps because the president seems impervious to that—some want to turn this into a violation of campaign-finance law. Trevor Potter, a former member of the Federal Election Commission told “60 Minutes” the payment was “a $130,000 in-kind contribution by Cohen to the Trump campaign, which is about $126,500 above what he’s allowed to give.” The FBI raided Mr. Cohen’s office, home and hotel room Monday. They reportedly seized records related to the payment and are investigating possible violations of campaign-finance laws.

 

But let’s remember a basic principle of such laws: Not everything that might benefit a candidate is a campaign expense.

 

Campaign-finance law aims to prevent corruption. For this reason, the FEC has a longstanding ban on “personal use” of campaign funds. Such use would give campaign contributions a material value beyond helping to elect the candidate—the essence of a bribe.

 

FEC regulations explain that the campaign cannot pay expenses that would exist “irrespective” of the campaign, even if it might help win election. At the same time, obligations that would not exist “but for” the campaign must be paid from campaign funds.

 

If paying hush money is a campaign expense, a candidate would be required to make that payment with campaign funds. How ironic, given that using campaign funds as hush money was one of the articles of impeachment in the Watergate scandal, which gave rise to modern campaign-finance law.

Fmr head of the FEC blows up media narrative that Trump broke the law, by referring to the actual law

No sooner had Michael Cohen pleaded guilty than a Democrat lawmaker called for a new investigation to determine if President Donald Trump committed a crime.

 

Rep. Joaquin Castro accused Trump of being an “unindicted co-conspirator” and called on Congress to launch a probe into possible criminal action by the president.

“And now the question is what will the US Congress do about that,” Castro, a member of the House Intelligence Committee, said. “I believe that the judiciary committee in both the House and the Senate should open an investigation tomorrow morning.”

 

But conservative author and radio-TV host Mark Levin provided a hard lesson in how the law actually works, noting how what the president is accused of doing is not even illegal.

 

“I want to help the law professors, the constitutional experts, the criminal defense lawyers, the former prosecutors and of course the professors and I want to help them understand what the law is,” Levin told Fox News’ Sean Hannity on Tuesday.

‘Life, Liberty & Levin’ host Mark Levin says Lanny Davis had Michael Cohen plead guilty to two counts of criminality that don’t exist on ‘Hannity’.

 

FOX News Channel (FNC) is a 24-hour all-encompassing news service dedicated to delivering breaking news as well as political and business news. The number one network in cable, FNC has been the most watched television news channel for more than 15 years and according to a Suffolk University/USA Today poll, is the most trusted television news source in the country. Owned by 21st Century Fox, FNC is available in more than 90 million homes and dominates the cable news landscape, routinely notching the top ten programs in the genre.]

 

The general counsel for the Clinton mob family Lanny Davis, he had his client plead to two counts of criminality that don’t exist,” he added. “It is a plea bargain between a prosecutor and criminal. A criminal who doesn’t want to spend the rest of his life in prison. That is not precedent. That applies only to that specific case. Nobody cites plea bargains for precedent.”

 

“Just because a prosecutor says that somebody violated a campaign law doesn’t make it so. He is not the judge. He is not the jury. We didn’t adjudicate anything,” Levin argued, using an example to drive home his point.

 

“Say a candidate had said we owe vendors a whole lot of money. We have had disputes with them. But I want you to go ahead and pay them. I’m a candidate, I don’t want the negative publicity. So he says to the private lawyer, you pay them, I’ll reimburse you, get it done,” Levin explained. “Is that illegal? It’s perfectly legal. Yet according to the prosecution of the Southern District of New York, it’s paid at the direction of the candidate to influence the election. Yes, Mr. Prosecutor, how stupid is your point?”

 

The former head of the Federal Election Commission, appearing on Levin’s show, also clarified how Cohen’s alleged “hush” payment to porn star Stormy Daniels ahead of the 2016 election is not an in kind contribution to the Trump campaign or a violation of campaign finance law.

“When the FEC wrote the regulation that says what constitutes campaign expenditures and what constitutes personal use, it rejected specifically the idea that a campaign expenditure was anything related to a campaign, and instead says it has to be something that exists only because of the campaign and solely for that reason,” Professor Bradley Smith told Levin Tuesday.

 

The expenditures alleged by Cohen, Smith explained, are not violations of campaign finance law even though they “might incidentally benefit your campaign,”

 

“The argument seems to be, and it hasn’t changed,” Levin summed up, “is that, if I spend money to make myself look better, or to take away negative issues in my private life, my business life, my employment life and use my own money, then somehow that is a campaign contribution…which it is not.”
