Remember way back when it was “Russia Russia Russia” 24 hours a day from all the left wing new outlets?
It’s not any more. Now we’re wading into campaign finance issues and boy do democrats live in a huge glass house. Led by Adam Schiff and Gerald Nadler, democrats are wetting their collective pants over the dream of Trump facing jail time.
Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) on Sunday said that President Trump might “face the real prospect of jail time” after prosecutors indicated last week that he directed illegal payments during his 2016 presidential campaign.
“There’s a very real prospect that on the day Donald Trump leaves office, the Justice Department may indict him. That he may be the first president in quite some time to face the real prospect of jail time,” he said on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”
Schiff’s comments come after federal prosecutors said in a legal filing Friday that referred to Trump as “Individual-1” that Trump during the 2016 campaign directed his former personal attorney, Michael Cohen, to make illegal payments to two women claiming they had affairs with Trump. It was the first time prosecutors made those accusations against Trump.
Trump contend that it was merely a financial transaction.
Trump said on Twitter that Democrats were wrongly targeting “a simple private transaction.” Court filings last week drew renewed attention to six-figure payments made during the 2016 presidential campaign by Trump’s personal lawyer to two women so they would not discuss their alleged affairs with the candidate.
Nadler was once again breathless over the news:
U.S. Representative Jerrold Nadler, who will lead the Judiciary Committee when Democrats take control of the House of Representatives next month, said on Sunday that if the payments were found to violate campaign finance laws it would be an impeachable offense.
As I said, dems live in a very large glass house. The obama campaign was hit with a $375,000 fine in 2013. Then we have to issue of hush money paid out by the government. Between 1997 and 2017 $17 million was paid out in 268 instances of sexual harassment. Who pays for this?
