Why Giuliani admitted to Trump's payment

It was, as expected, that he had to disclose it anyway so they decided to get out in front of it.



Here's the link to the document, all 92 pages, if you want to dig.

Another Don the Con lie. He was asked by a reporter a couple a months ago on Air Force One about the payment. He responded by saying that he knew nothing about it and that they needed to ask Cohen. This creep lies for sport.

And why did this info NOT appear on Don the Con’s 2017 financial disclosure form ? Because the public did not know about it then so he just neglected to include it. The Office of government Ethics just noticed this omission and referred the matter to Rosenstein at the DOJ.

Quote:

Ethics Office has 'essentially' reported Trump to the Justice Department for potential criminal prosecution.

MSNBC chief legal correspondent Ari Melber reports that the Office of Government Ethics (OGE) sent a letter to the Department of Justice on President Donald Trump’s hush money payments to adult film star Stormy Daniels.

(snip)

Former Department of Justice spokesperson Matt Miller described the letter as “essentially a criminal referral to DOJ for Trump making a false statement in a previous financial disclosure.”

Walter Shaub, the former Director of the Office of Government Ethics, went even further than Miller.

“This is tantamount to a criminal referral,” Shaub suggested. “OGE has effectively reported the president to DOJ for potentially committing a crime.”

What's noticeable is that not only did Trump know of, and make the hush money payment prior to the election, is the fact that he lied in his financial disclosure submitted last year.

Yet another impeachable offense.

Quote:
WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump reported that he reimbursed personal attorney Michael Cohen for costs apparently incurred in paying adult film star Stormy Daniels for a nondisclosure agreement, according to a federally required annual financial disclosure form released by the Office of Government Ethics on Wednesday.

"In the interest of transparency, while not required to be disclosed as 'reportable liabilities' ... in 2016 expenses were incurred by one of Donald J. Trump's attorneys, Michael Cohen," a note at the bottom of Page 45 of the 92-page report states. "Mr. Cohen sought reimbursement of those expenses and Mr. Trump fully reimbursed Cohen in 2017. The category of value would be $100,001 to $250,000 and the interest rate would be zero."

Yup.

1.06: Failure to File and Falsification Penalties



In addition to the fee discussed in “Late Filing Fees” section, individuals who fail to file a report, file a false report, or fail to report required information risk serious consequences. Both the agency and the Department of Justice may take action against the employee. This possibility emphasizes the importance of documenting contacts with filers, especially when there are concerns regarding timely or accurate filing. If it appears that penalties may need to be applied, OGE recommends that all contacts be in writing. Ethics officials should also make notes about telephone and in-person conversations.

Agency Disciplinary Action
5 U.S.C. app. § 104(c); 5 C.F.R. § 2634.701(d)

An agency may take any appropriate action against employees who have not filed or who have filed a false, incomplete, or late report, in accordance with applicable personnel laws and regulations. Agency action does not, however, preclude action by the Department of Justice.

Actions that the Department of Justice May Take
Civil Action

5 U.S.C. app. § 104(a)(1)

The Attorney General may bring a civil action in any appropriate United States district court against any individual who knowingly and willfully falsifies or who knowingly and willfully fails to file or report any information that such individual is required to report pursuant to 5 U.S.C. app. § 102. The court in which such action is brought may assess a civil penalty of up to $50,000.

Criminal Action

5 U.S.C. app. § 104(a)(2); 18 U.S.C. § 1001

The Attorney General may bring a criminal action against any individual who:

knowingly and willfully falsifies information required to be reported or
knowingly and willfully fails to file or report any information that such individual is required to report.
