When Stormy gets blue /
Her eyes get gray and cloudy /
Then the rain begins to fall /
Pitter patter, pitter patter…

Trump campaign has paid portions of Michael Cohen’s legal fees: Sources

“The Trump campaign has spent nearly $228,000 to cover some of the legal expenses for President Donald Trump’s personal attorney Michael Cohen, sources familiar with the payments tell ABC News, raising questions about whether the Trump campaign may have violated campaign finance laws.

“Federal Election Commission records show three payments made from the Trump campaign to a firm representing Cohen. The ‘legal consulting’ payments were made to McDermott Will and Emery — a law firm where Cohen’s attorney Stephen Ryan is a partner — between October 2017 and January 2018. It was those three payments, sources tell ABC News, that were related to Cohen’s legal defense.”

However, the payments could themselves cause problems: if they are for the Pornygate payoff, then they violate Campaign Finance laws.

Also/too: Cohen’s attorney, Stephen Ryan, is representing Cohen in both the Russia investigation and the Porn Star Pay Off investigation. So which is it?

    Laws are only real and valid when they are enforced. My understanding is that the FEC is a toothless pussycat, which is why they pulled this maneuver in the first place.

    Trump’s MO has always been to use other people’s money for everything. He even had the Trump Foundation, which contains none of his own money, pay Don, Jr’s $5 membership fee for the Boy Scouts.

    The interest on that $130k is insane
