Help please: Didn't Trump use money from his charity to pay off Florida's Pam Bondi for some favor?

After a while I just can't keep up with all of Trump and company's crimes.

3. Yes, he did.

He gave her $250,000 and she dropped the case when she was AG of FL. She's horrible!

5. All I recall is he made a contribution to her campaign in exchange

ďTRUMP: [In background] Good. Let me know whatís happening, okay? Oh, oh. Maybe because of this it would be better if you didnít go, you know? Maybe because of this. For that one, you know ó I think what you should do is get rid of this. Because itís so false what theyíre saying, itís such bulls---. Um. [PAUSE] I think, I think this goes away quickly. I think what ó I think itís probably better to do the Charleston thing, just this time. Uh, yeah. In two weeks, itís fine. I think right now itís, itís better. You know? Okay, hun. You take care of yourself. Thanks, [Unintelligible]. Yup, Iím proud of you. So long. Bye.Ē
