Well well well.

https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/pol ... 060194002/
There are several things about this mess that simply don't add up.

For example (from that article):
Davis said Cohen would not accept a pardon from a president he regards as corrupt.
And yet we are expected to believe that Cohen has the integrity not to do (allegedly) illegal things for someone he considers to be corrupt?

Someone is lying.

Yep. Makes great press fodder. One wonders what they're really up to while feeding us this bullshit.

Bottom line appears to be that Cohen and Manafort each racked up multiple convictions with one or the other of the fools saying that Trump ordered him to do it.

Problem is there's nothing illegal about Trump ordering him top pay off the bimbos.

That's not what many articles are saying about that little maneuver.

Did any of them cite which federal law was violated? I'll bet anything the answer is "no". Here's Dershowitz's take:
Ever since the news broke that Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to finance laws and swore that candidate Donald Trump directed him to do so, I have been reviewing the morass of rules and laws that govern campaign finance. I have been teaching and practicing criminal law for more than a half century, and yet, I have to acknowledge that I am having difficulty understanding the laws as they relate to the allegations made by Cohen against President Trump.

A few things are clear. A candidate is free to contribute to his or her own campaign. It also is not criminal for a candidate to pay hush money to women whose disclosures might endanger his campaign. So if candidate Trump paid hush money to his two accusers, there would be no violation of any campaign or other laws. To be sure, if he did so for the purpose of helping his campaign — as distinguished from helping his marriage — his campaign would have to disclose any such contribution, and failure to do so might be a violation of a campaign law, but the payments themselves would be entirely lawful.

If, on the other hand, Michael Cohen made the payments by himself, without direction from the president, that would constitute an impermissible campaign contribution from a third party. But if Cohen was merely acting as Trump’s lawyer and advancing Trump’s payments, with an expectation of repayment, then it would be hard to find a campaign finance crime other than failure to report by the campaign.

Failure to report all campaign contributions is fairly common in political campaigns. Moreover, the offense is committed not by the candidate but, rather, by the campaign and is generally subject to a fine. Though it is wrong, it certainly is not the kind of high crime and misdemeanor that could serve as the basis for a constitutionally authorized impeachment and removal of a duly elected president.

Not that I saw but didn't dig that deep.
