Former attorney Michael Cohen is going to prison because he lied to the congress. He was Trump`s lawyer for ten years and WSJ reported that Cohen paid porn star Stormy Daniels $130,000 in October 2016, a month before the presidential election, to stop her discussing the alleged affair in 2006.
Daniels’ lawyer said that the $130,000 payment to her was a cover-up, while others also raised questions about whether the payment was in violation of federal campaign finance laws, which may be the case if campaign funds were used.
Cohen said that the $130,000 was paid to Daniels from his own pocket, that it was not a campaign contribution, and that he was not reimbursed for making it by either the Trump Organization or the Trump campaign.
On April 5, 2018, Trump was on Air Force One when he claimed that he had no knowledge of Cohen`s payment to Daniels, but on April 26, however, Trump admitted for the first time that Cohen represented him in «the Stormy Daniels deal.»
On August 21, 2018, Cohen pled guilty to eight charges, including tax fraud, bank fraud, and campaign finance violations, for his role in the payment, and implicated Trump.
On December 7, 2018, in a sentencing memorandum for Cohen, federal prosecutors implicated Trump in directing Cohen to commit the campaign finance law felonies for which Cohen had pleaded guilty. Shortly after memorandum court filing, Trump tweeted; «Totally clears the president. Thank you!»
Four days later, in relation to the defamation lawsuit that was dismissed in October 2018 by Judge Otero, Daniels was ordered to pay $293,052,33 in attorney
s fees, costs and sanctions, which is less than half the amount demanded by Trumps lawyers.
The next day, Cohen was sentenced to 3 years’ imprisonment, in part for having paid $130,000 hush money (characterised in the charges as an «excessive campaign contribution») to Daniels during Trump`s election campaign.
President Donald Trump is under attack and this time he was attacked by porn star Stormy Daniels who claims that they had sex only once. The same happened to Brett Kavanaugh who was attacked by Christine Blasey Ford, Deborah Ramirez and Julie Swetnick. They accused Kavanaugh of either sexual misconduct or sexual assault.
Ford is a research psychologist and clinical psychology professor who said that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when she was 15. Ramire said that Kavanaugh exposed himself near her face. She said there was unwanted contact as she tried to push him away.
Swetnick said she knew Kavanaugh in high school in the 1980`s. She said that she was the victim of a gang rape at a party, and that Kavanaugh was one of the teens present at the party.
Kavanaugh has strongly denied the allegations from Ford and Ramirez. «This is ridiculous and from the Twilight Zone. I don`t know who this is and this never happened,» he responded to Swetnick. Later on, Kavanaugh said that the allegations are an intimidation tactic.
«There is no frenzy to come up with something-anything-that will block this process and a vote on my confirmation from occurring,» Kavanaugh wrote. «These are smears, pure and simple. And they debase our public discourse.
But they are also a threat to any man or woman who wishes to serve our country. Such grotesque and obvious character assassination-if allowed to succeed-will dissuade competent and good people of all political persuasions from service,» Kavanaugh wrote in a letter to the Judiciary Committee.
You can clearly see how dangerous the «mee-too» movement is and how they attack people they don`t like. This is not only an attack on good people but also an attack on the democracy. Very often, these attacks is coming from real cowards without any evidence.
They impeached Bill Clinton for having sex with Monica Lewinsky. They had a relationship in two years but Miss Lewinsky was forced to tell the truth by the FBI. They said if she don`t tell the truth, they would put her in prison for 27 years. FBI forced her, and this is how the elite is working. Embarrassment is the key.
You can imagine how it would be for John F. Kennedy if the “mee-too” movement was alive in the early 60`s. He was very popular among young girls and some of them was Marilyn Monroe. Nobody said something about his affairs but he was killed in Texas, November 22, 1963. An attack on the democracy.
So, here we are; someone is going to the White House and someone is going to prison.
