https://www.usatoday.com/story/news...-donald-trump-lawyer-michael-cohen/594358002/ Trump didn't need to pay off Stormy, his lawyer has been raking in the dough... But it does appear Trump's been paying him, so was Trump's lawyer selling access without the Donald knowing about his side business? Was Trump paying Cohen to cover his 'bimbo alert' in addition to whatever the lawyer could get from special interests? If I was Trump I'd be mad as hell. Why pay Cohen when the guy's making millions from people wanting "access"? The question now is: did Trump get money thru his lawyer? Bribery aint nothing new in Washington... The 2 parties threaten to regulate someone and the tap opens up. That much is bipartisan. edit: I guess Trump paid his lawyer during the campaign to cover his 'indiscretions' and the selling of access came later once Trump won election.
