There’s a sucker born every minute – ready to vote for someone like Trump

❝ Trump’s lawyer delivered $130,000 in hush money to porn star, Stormy Daniels, a few weeks before the 2016 election. The money was handed over to keep the lid on an “encounter” between the pornista and Trump in 2006. That was the year after his marriage to Melania in 2005.

Yup. You can read about the Christian Crusader for America First right here.

    A 29 year-old woman who Donald Trump called ‘the best piece of tail’ is among the White House best paid staffers at $179,700. Hope Hicks earns the enormous amount for her role as ‘assistant to the president and director of strategic communications’, according to an official White House salary list. Her salary is the largest paid to anyone working for President Trump, and matches that paid to assistant and senior counselor Kellyanne Conway, 50.

    “Stormy Daniels, star of the latest Trump sideshow, took her act to a strip club. It was a scene.”(Washington Post) “Year two of the Trump presidency began here overnight much like year one had ended: with his alleged ex-mistress smashing people’s faces into her bare chest at a strip club between an airport and a cemetery. Congress can’t pass a budget or figure out immigration policy. The administration is talking about war with North Korea. And down in Florida, at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Club, his supporters were toasting his first year.
    A normal Saturday at the Trophy Club brings in 100 to 150 people — and for a while on Saturday it seemed at least double that. “Making America Horny Again,” said a big sign outside, a play on Trump’s campaign slogan. Inside there was patriotic bunting on the brass railings. Red, white and blue balloons floated above each sticky table.”

    Watchdog group files complaint against Trump campaign over reported payout to Stormy Daniels (Washington Post) In a pair of federal complaints, Common Cause, a nonprofit government watchdog group, argued that the settlement amounted to an unreported in-kind contribution to Trump’s campaign. The group called on the Justice Department and Federal Election Commission to investigate.

    “First lady’s rep blasts ‘false’ reports about Melania Trump” (Washington Post 1.26.18) “The tabloid Daily Mail reported Friday that Mrs. Trump has spent a number of nights at a D.C. hotel in the wake of reports of allegations by adult film star Stormy Daniels that she had an affair with Donald Trump in 2006, shortly after he married Melania.”

  6. On the QT says:

    “Donald Trump, a Playboy Model, and a System for Concealing Infidelity : One woman’s account of clandestine meetings, financial transactions, and legal pacts designed to hide an extramarital affair.” (The New Yorker) “On November 4, 2016, four days before the election, the Wall Street Journal reported that American Media, Inc., the publisher of the National Enquirer, had paid a hundred and fifty thousand dollars for exclusive rights to McDougal’s story, which it never ran. Purchasing a story in order to bury it is a practice that many in the tabloid industry call “catch and kill.” This is a favorite tactic of the C.E.O. and chairman of A.M.I., David Pecker, who describes the President as “a personal friend.”
    Trump denies the affair.

  7. Update says:

    “Days before the election, Stormy Daniels threatened to cancel deal to keep alleged affair with Trump secret” “The timing of the Oct. 27 payment, 13 days after the initial deadline and just 12 days before the election, could be significant. Two complaints filed with the Federal Election Commission argue that the payment was intended to influence the Nov. 8 election and violated campaign finance law because it was not reported as an in-kind donation. …Some campaign-finance experts see parallels to the case of former senator John Edwards (D-N.C.), who was indicted by federal authorities in 2011 on charges that he used money from wealthy donors to hide an extramarital affair. The jury acquitted him on one charge and deadlocked on five other counts. Two other FEC complaints focus on a reported $150,000 payment in August 2016 by American Media, publisher of the National Enquirer, to Karen McDougal, a former Playboy model who told the New Yorker that she had a nine-month affair with Trump.
    The FEC may launch an official investigation only if all four current commissioners — two Republicans, a Democrat and an independent — agree to do so.”

  8. President Horndog says:

    CNN: Trump upset with Sarah Sanders over handling of Stormy Daniels questions Sanders at Wednesday’s press briefing said that an arbitration process had gone in the president’s favor. By describing the president as being involved in the arbitration process, Sanders put Trump closer to the legal process.
    White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters on Wednesday that she was not aware of whether Mr. Trump knows of the $130,000 payment to Clifford, and said “the president has denied the allegations against him, and again, this case has already been won in arbitration.” “Stormy Daniels lawyer says WH claims that Trump won arbitration are “ludicrous”

  10. Bimbo says:

    “Stormy Daniels’s lawyer predicted President Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, would “fold like a cheap deck of cards” after the FBI raided Cohen’s office and home on Monday.” “…the FBI raided the office [also home and apartment] of Cohen and seized emails, tax documents and records related to his payment to Daniels, an adult film star whose real name is Stephanie Clifford. The New York Times reported that Daniels is just one of “many topics” being looked at by the FBI, and The Washington Post said Cohen is under investigation for possible bank fraud and campaign finance violations. Other documents seized by the FBI include business records and communications between Cohen and Trump, but the raid does not appear to be directly connected to Robert Mueller’s probe of Russian meddling in the 2016 election, according to the Times.”

  11. Bingo says:

    “Trump defends payment to Stormy Daniels after Giuliani revelation” Former New York City mayor Rudolph “Rudy” Giuliani, who joined President Trump’s legal team last week, told Fox News Channel’s Sean Hannity that the president reimbursed his personal attorney Michael Cohen for a $130,000 payment to adult film actress Stormy Daniels to stay quiet about an alleged affair with the president.
    White House spokesman Hogan Gidley, seemingly caught unprepared on Fox News immediately after Giuliani’s remarks, deferred questions about Trump’s reimbursements to the president’s legal team: “I am not an attorney. I just work at the White House.”

  12. Talk to the hand says:

    (May 16, 2018) “President Trump formally disclosed Wednesday that he paid his attorney as much as $250,000 as reimbursements for expenses — which included a $130,000 payoff to porn star Stormy Daniels, who says she had a sexual encounter with him. The disclosure came in his annual financial disclosure report [see link] to the Office of Government Ethics.” Trump had previously denied knowing where Cohen received the money to make the payment. “You’ll have to ask Michael Cohen. Michael is my attorney. You’ll have to ask Michael,” he told reporters on Air Force One last month.”

  13. The game's afoot says:

    Adult film star Stormy Daniels was scheduled to meet Monday with federal prosecutors probing the activities of President Donald Trump’s personal attorney Michael Cohen, but prosecutors canceled the session after word leaked to the media, Daniels’ attorney said Sunday night.
    Daniels was expected to sit down with attorneys from the U.S. attorney’s office for the Southern District of New York, which oversaw raids in April that seized millions of paper and electronic records from Cohen’s home, office and hotel room.
    Michael Avenatti’s email to the federal prosecutors after their cancellation of the scheduled meeting:
    …could it be that Cohen is cutting a deal with the Feds and they want to stay focused on that?
