67. The two payments were for 150K and 130K...exact amounts paid to two certain women...to

protect Shitler before the election....

"In a startling admission, Cohen pleaded guilty to breaking campaign finance laws at the “direction of a candidate for federal office.” Those charges concerned two payments — one for $150,000 and another for $130,000 — which were made to two unnamed individuals who Cohen said had information that was “damaging” to the unnamed candidate."

Soon to be indicted conspirator...have to get the underling before the boss, that is how mob takedowns are done.

Cohen said in a plea deal that "in coordination and at the direction of a candidate for federal office" he kept information that would have been harmful to the candidate and the campaign from becoming public.
