Donald Trump just won this big vote that left Democrats fuming about a major betrayal
The Left has been on a five year witch hunt to get Donald Trump.
But it may be coming to an end.
That became clear when Donald Trump just won this big vote that left Democrats fuming about a major betrayal.
The Federal Elections Commissions voted four to one to end a long-running investigation into allegations Donald Trump broke the law when Michael Cohen paid porn star Stormy Daniels $130,000 in October 2016.
Cohen later pled guilty to tax evasion and lying to Congress about the payments, but no evidence ever emerged that Donald Trump violated campaign finance law.
That led to the commission deadlocking two to two on a vote of whether or not Trump or his campaign broke the law, which ultimately led to the vote closing the case.
The Washington Times reports:
The Federal Elections Commission voted Thursday to close a probe of former President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign, saying it had not found any proof of any violations.
On a 4-1 vote, the panel ended the investigation into hush money paid by former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen to porn star Stormy Daniels.
The panel said it had failed to find that Mr. Trump or his campaign “knowingly and willfully” violated campaign-finance law when Mr. Cohen paid $130,000 in October 2016 to the adult actress whose real name is Stephanie Clifford and who says she had had an affair with the real-estate tycoon earlier that decade.
Private individuals like Donald Trump are able to spend money on matters that would be considered campaign expenditures if it is something they would ordinarily do in the course of their regular business.
As a prominent businessman and celebrity, it is not far fetched for women to demand money in exchange for keeping quiet over a story about an affair, even if the affair never took place.
This is how John Edwards avoided criminal convictions when he was charged with using campaign funds to cover up an affair.
This fishing expedition was years in the making and now that it is over, many Trump supporters hope Deep State agencies and prosecutors will leave Trump alone.
