Inconceivable that the government of the break-in at a lawyer’s office (in the morning) – almost unknown. Even more conceivable that a lawyer would have excluded the tape-a-client – of completely & maybe illegal. The good news is that your favorite President did nothing wrong!

COHEN TAPED A DISCUSSION WITH TRUMP ABOUT POSSIBLE PAYMENT AT PLAYBOY MODEL
Trump’s attorney, Rudy Giuliani expressed a similar sentiment, as he told the Times that, while it was a discussion that the payment was never made, and the Band showed that Trump had not done anything wrong.
“Nothing in a conversation suggests, he’s all I know about it in advance,” Giuliani told The Times. He also said that Trump said Cohen, that each payment should be by cheque, not cash, so it could be documented properly.
“In the Grand scheme of things, it is a powerful mitigating evidence,” he said.
The Wall Street Journal reported in November 2016, McDougal was paid $ 150,000 by American Media, Inc. — the parent company of the National Enquirer — for the rights to the story, but it never ran.
The FBI is also investigating Cohen’s payment of $130,000, adult film star Stormy Daniels in the weeks before the election in exchange for the silence about an alleged one-time encounter with Trump. Trump has each affair denied with either Daniels or McDougal.
