"Taken together, the accounts refute a two-year pattern of denials by Mr. Trump, his legal team and his advisers that he was involved in payoffs to Ms. McDougal and a former adult-film star. They also raise the possibility that the president of the United States violated federal campaign-finance laws.

The Wall Street Journal found that Mr. Trump was involved in or briefed on nearly every step of the agreements. He directed deals in phone calls and meetings with his self-described fixer, Michael Cohen, and others. The U.S. attorney’s office in Manhattan has gathered evidence of Mr. Trump’s participation in the transactions."

I don't know how new this news is but it sure is a long piece that sounds pretty familiar.
But there it is and I expect the new House will have a lot to say about it.

...not to be overly contentious, bubbagone, but how exactly is this breaking news? I thought that it was practically common knowledge that Trump paid his mistresses off.

This time they have the evidence to prove it. Before it was always alleged based mostly on the words of the women and Trump and his lawyers' lies.
 
This case has been closed and no one in the right mind cares. Anything, at this point, is considered a conspiracy, so this thread should actually be moved to the "Conspiracy Theory" section, not "Breaking News".

The fact that he's male trash regarding his wedding vows, as Bill Clinton is, is not a revelation. Paying off his sex partners through a NDA is also a common tactic of his that is widely known.

Neither are illegal, but both could be brought before a civil court, as some of his liaisons have, and of course his ex-wives have.

Prove what? That he's an asshole that cheats on his wife? We all know that. His wife knows that. The people that voted for him knew that before they voted for him, just as the ones that re-elected Bill Clinton knew about him.

Rudy has been below the radar for some time, anyone have a sighting?

Conspiracy to commit campaign finance violations.
 
A truly slow day for "Breaking" news?
It's worn out but so what? He is president until 2020
Stuff like this won't change that.

It's in a 5 reporter WSJ story today at 1:03 PM so they think it is ... and it's Friday afternoon in time for the Sunday shows.

Excepting that this is an actual conspiracy, and not a theoretical one.


Last I recall of Rudy was him offering to explain the journalist's murder for Saudi Arabia. They turned him down, for some reason!

He didn't do anything illegal. So, who cares?

A conspiracy to what? A "conspiracy" isn't a crime.

Him paying hush money to his mistresses isn't illegal on its own.

Him conspiring with others to make payments or take actions to influence an election ... that's a different kettle of fish.

Influencing an election isn't illegal, either.
 
Yes it is. U.S. Code › Title 18 › Part I › Chapter 19 › § 371

Did you skip civics class?

Why didn't Clinton, Obama and Sanders go to jail?

Without a double standard, you people wouldn't have any standards.

Do you even know what civics class is? :lamo
 
Those violations happen all the time. The politicians that committed them (Clinton, Obama, Sanders) paid a fine and went about their business.

Clinton Obama Sanders did not dictate their campaigns to pay off pornstars. Trump did. Try again.
