It's a desperate defense that makes no sense, one that forces its adherents to believe that USA law is wrong and Trump is right about what constitutes a campaign finance violation.
Violations of campaign finance laws can be handled as a civil matter with the Federal Election Commission or as a criminal matter by the Justice Department. "I could not independently confirm the information in the CNN story", he said". I know all about flipping.
U.S. President Donald Trump's former personal lawyer Michael Cohen told lawmakers under oath previous year that he did not know whether the then-candidate was aware of a June 2016 Trump Tower meeting with Russians before it happened, Axios reported on Thursday.
Among the transactions the lawsuit called illegal was a $10,000 payment to the Unicorn Children's Foundation for a portrait of Trump purchased at a fundraising auction in 2014.
"It's an incorrect understanding of the law", Davis said. His work has also appeared in Salon, Raw Story, Truthdig, National Memo, Philadelphia Weekly, Democratic Underground, L.A. Weekly, MintPress News and many other publications. "The campaign limitations under the law apply the same".
Cohen had fronted the cash, $130,000, to pay porn star Stormy Daniels for keeping quiet about a decade-old tryst with Trump.
The person told The Associated Press Thursday that Attorney General Barbara Underwood recently requested a criminal referral from the state tax department to investigate and potentially file charges against Cohen, the former personal attorney for Donald Trump.
Leaders of the Senate Intelligence Committee said this week that Cohen told the panel he was not aware of the Trump Tower meeting before reading news reports about it.
While the full implications for the real estate mogul-turned-president remain unclear, Cohen's statements - and the prospect of more revelations to come - puts Trump in legal peril.

In a statement, The Times' communications department said the paper stood by the report and the reporters who wrote it, Michael S. After months of Senate hearing, the senate found the claims to be "a fraud and a hoax" and he ultimately censured by the chamber.

New York University offers free tuition to all medical students
The NYU School of Medicine is offering full-tuition scholarships to all students, regardless of their financial situation. They owed an average amount of $191,000, according to a survey by the Association of American Medical Colleges.
Now the state tax department is looking into any potential criminality as it pertains to NY tax laws because the foundation is based in the state.
In this August 21, 2018 file photo, Michael Cohen, former personal lawyer to US President Donald Trump, leaves federal court after reaching a plea agreement in NY.
In the Fox interview, an at times rambling Trump stewed over the question of his removal from office: "I don't know how you can impeach somebody who has done a great job". Davis told Bloomberg that in this dubious dossier, at least 13 allegations against Cohen alone were false, including one claim that Cohen traveled to Prague in 2016 to meet with Russians and facilitate a "clandestine" conspiracy between Trump and Russia.
"And the investigations related to Trump, you know, handled with, let's say all-out prosecutorial force of government and deep state might". Trump argued the move could have dire economic consequences.
Because the hush payments were meant to influence the outcome of the elections, they violated USA laws governing campaign contributions, making Trump an - as yet - unindicted co-conspirator.
When then-FBI Director James Comey met with Trump early in the administration, he said the president asked him if he wanted to stay in his role and declared: "I need loyalty".
A Time magazine cover, part of a series showing Trump behind the Resolute Desk in the White House, illustrated him gasping for breath in an Oval Office that was flooding with the caption reading: In Deep. "He makes a better deal when he uses me". It's not about credibility.
Cohen pleaded guilty to campaign finance violations in the form of hush payments during the 2016 campaign to two women who alleged they had affairs with Trump, which he said he committed at the behest of the then-candidate. Whatever you think about the media's role in 2016, Conway's attempt to equivocate between CNN and the president and his campaign is completely disingenuous. The probe includes the hacking of Democrats' emails, whether the Trump campaign may have cooperated with Russian Federation and if the president obstructed justice.
