Russia is largely missing from the mainstream media headlines today, as it seems that Trump’s indiscretions with a porn star are today’s reason to bring him up on some very serious charges. On the night of the Oscars, Trump tweeted that he was the only star of the night. His ever-narcissistic statement was missing the word “porn.” Former porn star Stormy Daniels (Stephanie Clifford) is suing Donald Trump for an invalid shut-up contract.
It seems the hush money that Trump’s attorney Michael Cohen admittedly wired her was an incomplete deal when Trump failed to sign the contract that would have sealed the deal. The “David Dennison” alias used in the contract is Trump. “Peggy Peterson” is Clifford/Daniels. There are said to be texts, photos and other media that would be revealed if Stormy wins the case.
Cohen blew the lid off the case when he stated, “Neither the Trump Organization nor the Trump campaign was a party to the transaction with Ms. Clifford, and neither reimbursed me for the payment, either directly or indirectly. The payment to Ms. Clifford was lawful, and was not a campaign contribution or a campaign expenditure by anyone.” Ummm… okay.
The consequences can mean jail time for the lawless Trump and pawn-lawyer Cohen. If Trump did, in fact, authorize this payoff, he has violated federal election laws. Americans have the right to know how that money is dispersed, so this undisclosed funneling of hush money by Trump is significant. Multiple complaints have already been officially filed. The investigations should be inevitable, as Trump has violated a slew of federal disclosure and campaign finance laws. One way or the other, action must be taken.
