Feds Now Have Evidence Trump Broke the Law to Become President. Will Whitaker Bury It?

Prosecutors won’t likely charge a sitting president, yet have implicated him in a criminal scheme to pay off Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal. What to do then? Go to Congress.

Friday’s in-depth Wall Street Journal report suggests the U.S. Attorney’s Office of the Southern District of New York and the FBI appear to possess evidence of Donald Trump’s involvement in a criminal scheme that helped get him elected president.

This raises serious questions about what comes next, particularly in light of Trump’s appointment of Matthew Whitaker, a political loyalist, as acting attorney general.

Trump played a central role in hush-money payments made to Karen McDougal and Stephanie Clifford during the 2016 presidential campaign, the Journal reports, adding more detail to the case of Michael Cohen, Trump’s former fixer-lawyer who pled guilty to federal campaign finance violations in the Southern District in August.

Recall that when Cohen pleaded guilty in federal court, he stated under oath that he had made the payments “in coordination and at the direction of a candidate for federal office”—many assumed that that candidate was Trump, of course.

We now know from the Journal that the person who directed Cohen in this criminal scheme was, indeed, Donald Trump. The charging document to which Cohen pled guilty states that he “coordinated with one or more members of the campaign, including through meetings and phone calls, about the fact, nature, and timing of the payments.”

The Journal reports that “[t]he unnamed campaign member or members referred to Mr. Trump, according to people familiar with the document.”

  1. When an article starts with words like “suggests” and “it appears” you know exactly what the score is. I expect more from this site and frankly you have been rather disappointing lately!

    Who cares if Trump banged a few whores then told them to shut up, it’s not like it hasn’t happened before. We all know it’s the zionist’s favorite trick, compromise the candidate so you can control him.

    Give us real evidence or you are no better than MSM.

  2. With all these smoke screens of make believe, I have to wonder what is really going on! Must be pretty dark if all this is the diversionary angle of view!

    Trump got enlisted to be the center piece of mishaps, and chaos to debase the office of President if the United states. This whole thing has been a fix from the word go.
