Feds End Campaign Finance Investigation into Trump ‘Hush Money’ to Stormy Daniels

Federal prosecutors have ended their investigation into payments from then-candidate Donald Trump to porn star Stormy Daniels, which Trump’s critics had hoped would lead to his arrest or impeachment.
Another big nothingburger.

I still don't understand how people wanted Trump "arrested" or "impeached" over a possible campaign violation with a value of less than $200,000 when Obama was found guilty of campaign violations so massive that the Obama Campaign was fined OVER TWICE AS MUCH for campaign violations equaling NINE TIMES AS MUCH...

Obama 2008 campaign fined $375,000

President Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign was fined $375,000 by the Federal Election Commission for campaign reporting violations — one of the largest fees ever levied against a presidential campaign, POLITICO has learned.

...The major sticking point for the FEC appeared to be a series of missing 48-hour notices for nearly 1,300 contributions totaling more than $1.8 million — an issue that lawyers familiar with the commission’s work say the FEC takes seriously. The notices must be filed on contributions of $1,000 or more that are received within the 20-day window of Election Day.

More than half of those contributions were transferred from the Obama Victory Fund,a joint committee between the campaign and the Democratic National Committee.
Trump MIGHT HAVE misrepresented ONE transaction with contributions?....He should be arrested and impeached...

Obama does the same with THIRTEEN HUNDRED transactions?...Well, that's not even a "free pass"...That a "MESSIAH pass"...Remember...When it's a Democrat, it's "different"...

Yeah, but Obama's the devil incarnate according to right wing brainwashing. We should maybe expect better of Trump, who was going to drain the swamp, instead of bringing the swamp creatures with him.

Thanks for confirming the double standard.

What's the double standard? Obama's record is as pure as the driven in comparison to Trump's. Republican are continuously corrupt going back to Nixon.

Double standard? Based on your comments, you don't seem to have one. Just a one sided intractable view the result of a closed mind. The word you are looking for is "Biased"

Trump probably won't be charged with campaign finance fraud in office. But that doesn't make him innocent.

Of course it was "hush money" and yes, even a "cover up" but the question is, was a campaign finance crime committed? That is answered (under normal circumstances) by asking, would the hush money be paid and other actions taken, even if the person paying the hush money wasn't a candidate for office?

A "hush money" payment from personal accounts (not campaign accounts) to "cover-up" something non-criminal in and of itself, to protect personal interests, isn't criminal (again under normal circumstances, not special Nadler Rules for Donald Trump).

So, regardless of how Cohen or anyone else characterized the actions, Cohen's testimony destroyed the idea that either paying for Pecker to "catch and kill" stories, or hush money bimbo payoffs that occurred when Trump was a candidate were in fact crimes.

Cohen testified that both actions, the purposeful catching and killing of stories with / by Pecker, and various and assorted bimbo payoffs when they erupted, predated his employment with Trump.

If that is true, then the instances of catch and kill and bimbo payoffs in 2016 were just NOP for Trump, either as a private citizen or candidate, thus could not be -- as the law defines the crime -- "campaign finance violations" . . .

So it seems, Cohen plead guilty to non-crimes, . . . thanks Lanny Davis (HRC's lawyer)!

Were you living abroad during the Clinton Administration? And who is the "Driven"? And who says he was pure?
