President Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen ratted him out. He says Trump directed him to arrange hush money payments to a playboy model and a porn star. Trump then reimbursed him for the Stormy Daniels payment. Cohen claims that helped Trump’s 2016 election chances and therefore it was an illegal in-kind campaign contribution.

Witch Hunt

Democrats are wary of impeachment talk but Cohen’s lawyer (and Bill Clinton’s old impeachment defender) Lanny Davis is howling “high crimes and misdemeanors.”

But Bill Clinton’s former speech writer Mark Penn says there’s nothing illegal about it. Had Trump used campaign funds to pay hush money it would have been an illegal personal use of campaign funds. So using his own money can’t be considered a campaign contribution. And Professor Dershowitz says even if it is a campaign contribution there’s no limit to the amount Trump can contribute to his own campaign.

Trump tweets “witch hunt.” Stay tuned.

    You are wrong on the illegal campaign contribution. The money was NOT paid from campaign funds so it was perfectly legal.
    That point is so clear, it makes me wonder if you didn’t make that mistake on purpose.
    Maybe you are on a “witch hunt” yourself.
    Hillary paid for the Russian Dossier out of campaign and DNC money – lots worse.
