National Enquirer owner admits to paying off Playboy model to protect Trump

The media company that owns the National Enquirer admitted to "working in concert" with the Trump campaign to pay off a woman who said she had an affair with Mr. Trump in order to squash her story, prosecutors in New York said Wednesday.

Quote:

"AMI further admitted that its principal purpose in making the payment was to suppress the woman's story so as to prevent it from influencing the election," the news release said.



Quote:

The announcement came hours after former Trump attorney Michael Cohen was sentenced in Manhattan to three years in federal prison for violating campaign finance laws for his role in paying off McDougal and Stormy Daniels.
We all knew it but there's two pieces of evidence. There are other pieces but this is proof. N o major company admits corruption just cause it's Wednesday.

Waiting to see the 'proof' That Trump requested/required this. If he did, he'll own it.

I'll wait.

Obama having friends at Rockefeller Center isn't the same though, right?

trump once noted about his followers that he could shoot someone and not lose any voters.
do you really think a little side action was going to change any minds?
not excusing any crime that may have been committed - just doubting they’ll get trump directly on any of it.

Yay, a fleeting moment of clarity.

We knew he was a brash NY Tycoon with the appetites and ethics of a brash NY Tycoon that loved being associated with conspicuous consumption and always wanted to be near beautiful women and had no reason to present himself any other way.

We knew he wasn't polished politically, we knew he wasn't going to suddenly go with carefully crafted, focus-group tested messaging -- AND WE DIDN'T WANT HIM TO TRY.

His entire life has been overselling and bravado with a streak of goading of any competition or enemy . . . So when the two part "BUILD THE WALL (and Mexico will pay for it) became a rally standard, we knew the 2nd part was just to shove a rough-barked stick up the butts of the left.

The humorless left are still not understanding anything that makes him or us tick and that you still aren't getting the obvious laugh-lines makes it all the funnier to us Deplorables.

Your reactions to his hyperbole exposes that you have none of the political astuteness and nuanced understanding you claim to have -- it's practically child-like . . . Like when the dad is teaching his kid to hit a baseball and says, "keep your eye on the ball" and the kid picks up the ball and puts it against his eye.

Problem is, you're not as cute or innocent as the little kid. Your stupid rigid literal reactions to Trump being Trump are rooted in white-hot hate which makes your hair-on-fire TDS histrionics all the more wonderfully impotent and hilarious -- only exceeded by the media-managed self-delusions about the always imminent end of Trump!

Problem with that is, we're still not tired of winning . . . So yeah, we still have a few passes to give him before we write him off.

1. Rich guys pay off mistresses all the time. Not a crime. Companies settle out of court if they think doing so will be cheaper in the long run than fighting it in court regardless of that company is guilty or innocent.

2. News media outlets all the time choose which stories they do or don't air and print. As far as I know that is not a crime. I use the term news media loosely with the National Enquirer seeing how they the same type of rags that print Bigfoot has my baby, Elvis is still alive and Aliens shoved a probe up my ass stories. Had National Enquirer printed the stories of the accusers the only people who would have believed the stories would be die hard **** for brains partisan hackss.

3. Trump is a billionaire. So the idea that he needed to use campaign money to silence accusers is laughable. It amounts to accusing the owner of Walmart stealing money out of a cash register to buy alcohol.

Any funds used to pay off his mistresses in order to benefit his campaign became, by definition, “campaign money.” The source of the funds is irrelevant. It’s the use of the funds that brings it within the scope of campaign finance laws. And, Giuliani, Cohen and AMI have all acknowledged that the purpose of these payoffs was to benefit the Trump campaign.
