Cohen sought ‘final approval’ from Trump for illegal Stormy Daniels hush-money deal: TMZ

Published

on

TMZ is reporting new details on the Stormy Daniels hush-money agreement that make the story look even worse for President Donald Trump.

According to the publication, the adult film star in 2016 was reluctant to sign onto the deal offered by former Trump “fixer” Michael Cohen and instead wanted to sell her story.

However, she was convinced to sign on the bottom line after Cohen promised her that he would get a “final approval” for the deal from then-candidate Donald Trump.

“We’re told Cohen assured Daniels’ rep that his signature was forthcoming,” TMZ reports. “We’re told Cohen said the hangup was that his client was traveling, he was unable to get in touch with him and he needed final approval which he assured would happen when his client returned to New York.”

TMZ also reports that “at least one” of Daniels’ representatives told the FBI earlier this year that Cohen had promised Trump would directly sign off on the deal.

In a set of legal filings released last week, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York implicated President Donald Trump in a criminal conspiracy to violate federal elections laws when it said the president personally directed Cohen to pay money in exchange for Daniels’ silence about their alleged affair.

MAGA supporters are losing their minds after a photo of the Nativity scene at Claremont United Methodist Church was posted to Facebook.

Senior minister Karen Clark Ristine shared the image on Facebook with the message hoping that everyone in the United States could see the photo and read the story for Christmas.

"The theological statement posted with the nativity: In a time in our country when refugee families seek asylum at our borders and are unwillingly separated from one another, we consider the most well-known refugee family in the world," she wrote. "Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, the Holy Family. Shortly after the birth of Jesus, Joseph and Mary were forced to flee with their young son from Nazareth to Egypt to escape King Herod, a tyrant. They feared persecution and death."

Columnist nails Republicans for only caring about Hunter Biden now that his father is running for president

Published

One of the critical questions that must be answered by Republicans, according to one Washington Post columnist, is why they didn't care about Hunter Biden's position at Burisma for so many years.

In a Sunday piece, James Downie asked why Republicans didn't do anything about Hunter Biden five years ago when it was first revealed that vice president's son was on the board of a Ukraine energy company. The House and the Senate were being run by Republicans until this year. They haven't had problems with other partisan investigations against high-profile leaders. There were ten investigations into the Benghazi attacks, three hearings, 29 witnesses, and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton testified for 11 hours. Yet, it was only after Joe Biden announced he was running against President Donald Trump that Republicans discovered an issue.
