Trump paid the lawyer, no campaign contribution, no crime.

Many analysts are saying yes, crime. Although most admit that Giuliani "leaking" that the Republican President did repay Cohen was a strategy to diffuse the fact that either Cohen has already flipped and told Mueller that or Mueller found out about it from the Cohen documents.

But as one story points out:

Quote:
Giuliani’s interview with Hannity was more strategic than you think. But here's where he fumbled


[Details of leak]

But Giuliani, true to form, did not stop there. During the interview, in typical Giuliani fashion — as if trying to walk a tightrope with clogs — even though he admitted that the money came from Trump, he went on to state that the money was, indeed, "funneled" through Cohen's firm.

That statement, the "funneling" of money, certainly raises eyebrows. Realizing he was in a corner, Giuliani then stated that the money was used for unspecified "expenses" to reimburse Cohen. So, Trump paid Cohen to reimburse him the expense of paying Daniels? Talk about inconsistent! The White House, again, was numbed by the statements, having no comment on the matter.

As Walter Scott once said, "O, what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive!" How can Trump transfer $130,000 to Cohen for expenses while, at the same time, pay Cohen to hush Daniels?

While the Giuliani interview was probably planned to leak that Trump did pay Daniels — which everyone presumed — far from resolving an outstanding issue, it simply raises more questions and it could certainly put him in legal jeopardy as it runs afoul of federal election laws.

Now the question is whether the documents prove that Trump committed a crime by making the payment before the election. Stay tuned ….

We know that you could care less that your president is a pathological liar and has the morals of a snake.

Plus seems to enjoy contradicting himself since he does it so often.

Normal people would.
