Poison label taken human form and infamous 9-11 Marketing Guru, Rudy Giuliani appeared on sekrit prznintial advisor Sean Hannity’s Screech Hour last night, and screwed the pooch.
NYT’S MIKE SHEAR and MAGGIE HABERMAN:
“Giuliani … said that he had documentation showing that Mr. Trump had personally made the payment. Mr. Giuliani indicated that the goal was to conclusively demonstrate that there was no campaign finance violation involved. ‘That removes the campaign finance violation, and we have all the documentary proof for it,’ he said. Mr. Giuliani added that when the initial payment was made, Mr. Cohen did it ‘on his own authority.’
“‘Some time after the campaign is over, they set up a reimbursement, $35,000 a month, out of his personal family account,’ Mr. Giuliani said. He added that over all, Mr. Cohen was paid $460,000 or $470,000 from Mr. Trump through those payments, which also included money for ‘incidental expenses’ that he had incurred on Mr. Trump’s behalf.“
Anyway, on the same day that Ty Cobb fled the scene of the crime in the old retirement keep-out-of-trouble-free scheme, Rudy tells Trump SuperFan that essentially the Preznint is a liar and maybe a money-laundering fiend trying to skirt the FEC. (The structured, small payments is what sent teen boy diddler Denny Hastert to the sneezer. It’s the definition of laundering)
The $130,000 Ameros looks like a campaign contribution. And if it was Michael/Mikhail Cohen’s money it was either WAY more than federal limits , or if it was Candidate Stupid’s money then it was unreported . Both are felonies if true.
Of course because Cohen was raided, Mr, Mueller probably already knows who committed which felony. Only guessing.
Three weeks ago, Preznint Stupid insisted that he knew nothing about the $130,000 that his stupidest lawyer paid to Stormy Daniels to buy her silence two weeks before the exciting conclusion of the 2016 Goat Rodeo. Then, last week, Comrade Stupid acknowledged that he was aware of the payment, and that Cohen was representing him in that crazy Stormy deal, but that there was no reimbursement of the $130,000. Last night newly hired counsel Mr. Noun-Verb-911 said that, in fact, Trump did reimburse Cohen.
We expect Rudy to set a new land-speed record to be You’re Fired’ed that will make the Mooch look like he lasted until he got the gold pocket watch routine. Be prepared for a new unit of measure: In A Rudy Minute.
Only guessing of course.
And all this time we thought Hannity had a 5-second delay button just in case anyone ever said anything that made news.
