Comrade Stupid’s dumbest lawyer (and that’s saying something!) Michael Cohen says that the hush money paid to Porny Daniels was paid by him without promise of repayment from Trump or his staff. Such a mensch!
As a sonofalawyer, I laugh to think of an ambulance chaser parting with $130K Ameros as a favor to a client. Billable hours weep.
And as we know, if the Ameros came from the campaign or was a donation to the campaign, then it was illegal because no one reported it.
So, you know, the credibility of Cohen’s goodness-of-his-heart story are stretched like a Duggars loins. Let’s examine!
- Cohen used his Trump Organization e-mail to negotiate directly with Porny Daniels. That kinda-sorta makes it an official action from the 2016 Goat Rodeo or from Trump.
- Cohen is represented in Pornygate (see what I did there?) by the law firm who also represents Comrade Stupid AND Comrade Stupid’s 2016 Goat Rodeo Campaign.
- Cohen took a loan against his own house, he didn’t just pop $130K Ameros out of his mad money stash. That loan carries interest and, you know, that’s not normal.
- Cohen has complained to his friends that no one has reimbursed him for that $130K Ameros he borrowed.
It’s all circumstantial, I suppose, but added up it seems unlikely to be a coinkydink, and therefore very likely to be an unreported/in-kind donation to the campaign that was unreported, and therefore someone (or someones) has committed a crime.
