    Because they put the screws on him with his personal tax delinquency to make him say what they wanted to hear. If Cohen represented Clinton he would never have even been interviewed. In any event Cohen made some bad decisions and decided to cut a deal for sentencing discretion, which involves him telling a story that cannot be backed up with any hard evidence

    Stormy Daniels - Donald Trump - Karen McDougal



    If you are "Individual-1" in the Southern District of New York indictment against Micheal Cohen, and you did indeed direct Mr. Michael Cohen to pay off two women just previous to the 2016 election, then yes, you have committed campaign finance felony crimes. #1 - A $150,000 hush money payment to former Playboy model Karen McDougal in the early fall of 2016 for her silence and #2 - A $130,000 hush money payment to adult film actress Stormy Daniels in October of 2016 for her silence. Because Cohen admitted that the payments were intended to protect Trump's election chances, they are deemed to be "in-kind contributions" to the Trump campaign. They grossly exceed the donation limits ($2,700 per election), a criminal violation, and neither was included in campaign finance reports, another criminal violation. Rather than be treated as civil violations (an obvious and/or unintentional accounting/filing error etc.), these campaign finance violations above are treated as felonies because Cohen admitted that he violated these campaign finance laws "knowingly and willfully." He also stipulated that he was directed to do so by his client "Individual-1" who is understood to be Donald Trump.

    Lawyer Micheal Cohen, American Media CEO David Pecker, and perhaps Trump Organization CFO Allen Weisselberg will testify regarding the above campaign finance felony allegations.
    So, a private citizen cannot use his own money to enter into contracts with other private citizens?

    Private citizens cannot accept money to enter contracts with other private citizens?

    What you say seems odd to me. Of course, I'm not a lawyer, but it seems like this was merely a contractual arrangement made between free citizens for mutual gain.

    What's the difference between lawyer and a hooker? The hooker stops screwing you after you're dead.

    Trumps soldiers are dropping left and right, and going to jail one after another and the ignorant cultists still claim no laws were broken...

    How about the one who defended that Democrat with the great hair?

    If a private citizen uses his own money to do anything, is that a campaign finance violation?

    Was Cohen convicted or did he enter a plea?

    So now people who plea are innocent. Is that general policy for you (prison policy), or just in this case?

    Prosecutors charged Cohen with making false statements to a financial institution in connection with a credit decision from about February 2015 through about April 2016.

    Unlawful corporate contributions
    Prosecutors charged Cohen with willfully causing an unlawful corporate contribution from about June 2016 through about October 2016.

    Excessive campaign contributions
    Prosecutors charged Cohen with making an excessive campaign contribution on Oct. 27, 2016.
    Cohen pleaded guilty in August to tax fraud, lying to banks and violating campaign finance laws. The campaign finance charges relate to hush money payments to porn star Stormy Daniels and Playboy model Karen McDougal. Cohen pleaded guilty in November to lying to Congress about an aborted deal to build a Trump Tower in Moscow. That case was lodged by special counsel Robert Mueller.

    Don't you think it the least bit odd that Cohen's attorney's would have him plead guilty to [what you say] are only NDA's and not felonies? And why would a judge accept guilty pleas to what essentially are not crimes?

    Trump's ex-lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen sentenced to 3 years in prison after admitting 'blind loyalty' led him to cover up president's 'dirty deeds'

    Out of curiosity, what is the level of difference between the way the DOJ treated Clinton's attorneys and the way they have treated Trump's Attorneys?

    Seems like they are trying to jail Trump's and gave out very liberal pardons to all of Clinton's.

    Just saying...

    The latest recipient of an immunity deal from the Justice Department is one of Clinton’s closest aides and a figure at the heart of the email scandal, Cheryl Mills.

    She joins two other central figures in benefiting from such deals: former State Department staffer, Bryan Pagliano and tech specialist Paul Combetta.

    In addition to at least two other immunized witnesses according to the Associated Press, they represent the big three of officials involved in the underlying allegations of Clinton’s potential criminal conduct.

    Their collective immunization is baffling.
