Trump Lawyer Admits He Paid Prostitute To Hide Encounter with President

I’ve never heard of an attorney paying for their client’s sexual encounters. However, if you are to believe President Donald Trump’s personal attorney, he said Tuesday he paid $130,000 out of his own pocket to a porn actress who was working as a prostitute in 2006.

Michael Cohen said in a statement to The New York Times that he was not reimbursed by the Trump Organization or the Trump campaign for the payment to Stormy Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford.

Cohen wrote, “The payment to Ms. Clifford was lawful, and was not a campaign contribution or a campaign expenditure by anyone.”

Cohen told the Times he had delivered a similar statement to the Federal Election Commission in response to a complaint filed by Common Cause, a government watchdog group.

Common Cause had asked the FEC to investigate the source of the $130,000 payment and determine whether it represented an excessive campaign contribution. Cohen told the Times, “The allegations in the complaint are factually unsupported and without legal merit.”

The Wall Street Journal reported in January that Cohen had arranged the payment to Clifford in October 2016 to keep her from publicly discussing the alleged sexual encounter during the presidential campaign.

Here’s the problem: if this was to cover up a crime, such as prostitution, it would be illegal under most State Laws. It’s a legal maxim, particularly in the post-Watergate era, that often the cover-up is worse than the crime. But cover-up crimes are the Rodney Dangerfield of the white collar world: they don’t get any respect. You frequently hear them derided as “gotcha” crimes, or as something prosecutors charge only when they can’t “get” a defendant for anything else.

There is a widespread perception that these crimes are somehow less serious than many other white collar offenses. They aren’t.

Trump Proposes Budget Cuts to School Safety and Security Funding

Even after this last school shooting, Trump can’t do anything right. The Trump administration’s budget unveiled earlier this week contains millions of dollars worth of CUTS to programs designed to keep schools safe and combat mental illness.

As Politico pointed out, the fiscal year 2019 budget would slash $25 million from a program that promotes school safety and a $400 million grant program that schools can use to deal with bullying and mental health issues.

The budget would also stop funding the School Emergency Response to Violence program (Project SERV), which received $1 million in federal money last year. Department of Education spokesperson Liz Hill told Politico the fund still has $5.2 million in its bank account, however, which she said would likely be enough to cover its needs through 2019.

Former Obama administration official Scott Sargrad, who worked at the Department of Education, told Politico the programs and grants proposed to be cut “are the kinds of things that can help students, staff and teachers respond and recover” after a school shooting such as the one that occurred in Florida on Wednesday.

On the latest episode of “Celebrity Big Brother” cast member Brandi Glanville flat out asks Omarosa Manigault-Newman if she ever had relations with the Commander-In-Chief.

Omarosa answers, and despite her and Trump never hooking up, the controversial reality star said someone in the White House is.

Omarosa revealed that “there’s someone in the White House who’s sleeping with everybody”.

Brandi then claims that some of the women on “The Apprentice” hooked up with Trump behind the scenes. However, Omarosa assures us all that’s not her.
The longtime reality star turned former White House staffer has been spilling major tea on her brief experience as Director of Communications for the White House Office of Public Liaison. She recently told another cast member, Ross Matthews, that she was “haunted by tweets” sent out by President Trump. She also revealed that she would try to stop him but Ivanka, her husband Jared, and other members of his staff would keep her far away from him.

Omarosa told Matthews that things in the White House are really bad and she wasn’t successful at easing the president’s many worries. The 44-year-old reality star was reportedly fighting back tears while detailing her experience.

According to reports, Donald Trump visited the Broward Health North Hospital today, and after a press and photo session visited the shooting victims for less than 6 minutes. The official White House report says that he did a press conference and photo session at 7:09pm and had left the hospital by 7:15.

The president and the first lady flew from Washington to Florida on Friday afternoon. “Incredible recovery,” Trump said while at the hospital. “Incredible. And first responders. Everybody. The job they’ve done is incredible.”

The White House didn’t release the president’s schedule ahead of the visit, but Trump tweeted earlier in the day that he planned to meet “with some of the bravest people on earth,” whose lives “have been totally shattered.”
