Prosecutors have given up on prosecuting Trump for hush money payments: report

According to several people close to the matter speaking to the Associated Press, the U.S. attorney's office in Manhattan has made no move to restart the hush-money probe involving payments made to porn star Stormy Daniels by former fixer and lawyer for Donald Trump, Michael Cohen.

One attorney for a key witness in the case said the matter is "dead," according to the AP.

Prosecutors have even returned some of the evidence they collected — "a likely indication no one else will be charged. The attorney spoke on the condition of anonymity because prosecutors have not discussed the case publicly," the AP reports.
