The Details of Trump's Hush Money Payments Are About To Go Public

Source: Vice News

This story is breaking. Please refresh for updates.

WASHINGTON — A federal judge ordered the release of documents related to the investigation into hush money payments to women claiming they slept with President Trump.

The documents must be posted by 11:00 am eastern on Thursday, July 18, Judge William H. Pauley of the Southern District of New York wrote in a decision released Wednesday.

“The campaign finance violations discussed in the Materials are a matter of national importance. Now that the Government's investigation into those violations has concluded, it is time that every American has an opportunity to scrutinize the Materials,” Judge Pauley wrote.

Pauley ordered prosecutors release the Justice Department’s July status report and search warrant materials related to raids on President Trump’s jailed former attorney, Michael Cohen, be posted online.

14. You all don't get it

do you honestly think that any of his supporters give a good god damn????????
After all the information about his actions these past two years, and they support him and the Republican party anyway????
Give it up, concentrate on going after the republican senators and forget about anything Trump.........
His power completely rests with the Republican Senators. Destroy the Republican Senators, and Trump evaporates because he is no longer diverts attention from all the Republicans are doing in the shadows to advance their Fascist Tyranny of letting the corporations run wild and to enrich themselves and all their buddies.....

19. I think you are missing the bigger picture

It's not just Trump, who needs to be exposed, but the congressmen and Senators on the ballot in 2020. All those, who stood by silenty will be tarred with the same Trump brush, because silence implies consent.

23. Silence also implies approval.

Paint all the GOP with the same brush, not just Congressmen and Senators, but all those who support them.

20. He's going to need more than his supporters to get re-elected

He needs a chunk of Independent/Unaffiliated voters too. And while we will concentrate on electing Democrats in Congress we will never, as you say, "forget about anything Trump".

24. We are not aiming to change the minds of the MAGAts.

If they have minds!

We are going for the people in the middle who are tired of the lies and tired of working two or three jobs for little pay.

Go after repiggie senators? Yes. But that is only part of it.

4. I think they're releasing documents from the raid of Michael Cohen's office

... which is great news, if it's true. Michael Cohen was the tip of the iceberg though, there were many other women that he didn't handle or payoff. Luckily Cohen kept records of the payoffs and signed NDAs, and that's how the feds were able to get the info. Other people (friends of Chump) took part in silencing women including Eliot Broidy, and others. We'll probably never know the entire extent of it. Steve Bannon said they paid off at least 100 women in the last weeks of the presidential campaign, and it's a guess on his part.

I'll bet the guy who really knows *all* is Alan Weisselberg the CFO for the Chump Organization. He did the accounting and funds-transfer for this stuff, and everything happened according to Chump's direction.

Other than the playboy model (McDonald?) and Daniels, he said there weren't any to his knowledge.

32. Cohen only worked for Chump for about about 10 years

Chump's been having women problems for way longer than that.

"is it possible there is something else about to drop that Trump is trying to distract us from?"

And just like that....

Barr is shutting down all investigations into Trump so he can never be prosecuted.

29. Which is beyond criminal.

Barr obstructing Justice and probably witness tampering as well.

In years gone by this would be a scandal so grievous it wouldn't even be attempted. Now it's just part of the daily avalanche of criminality designed to bury notice of that which Dump can't distract from with his racist and idiotic Tweets.

Wonder how many investigations are now or will be beyond the statutes of limitations?

34. Never in a million years could I have imagined this nightmare.

Been around 65 years but I'm starting to think you may well be right.

This next election will be the deciding factor in whether the xian Dominion, RW corporate take over from the citizens happens. It ain't looking too good either but we'll fight it to the end and hope for the best. Congress women with a set of balls like the gang of 4 give me hope.

Selfish to admit but if it does happen, I'm glad I won't have to experience it for long.

That's the big question, we know he paid off a porn star and a Playboy model, how about the girls he and Epstein spent time with?

11. In this context why do they always say "slept" with?

You usually sleep with someone you care about. In these cases it should be stated "had sex with." Why the subtlety? President PedoNazi only cares about himself and his personal gratification.

17. Perhaps not subtle.

Perhaps just a euphemism. Perhaps it's veridical and is more complete than "had sex with."

Perhaps "spent the night with" as opposed to bonking the girl on the massage table between the salad and soup courses, so there was actual sleeping involved.

In the case of affairs, it's usually "slept with." If your affair occurs entirely in the front seat of a Subaru, it's not much of an affair. If it's in the front seat of a car (or on the front fender) *and* in exchange for something of value, the proper expression would be "repeatedly engaged a hooker for services."

27. I seriously freaking doubt there's any sleeping. Trump doesn't even 'sleep with' own his damn wife

You think he's spending the night with some random he doinked? Hell no. He's friggin' outta there (or she is) 2 mins after he finishes his business. Always.

I'd give 100-1 odds on it.

F***ed instead of slept. So times have changed, except on live tv and the news shows where using such graphic words is not allowed.

26. So the Barr DOJ stops the campaign violations hush money scheme at the trump organizations

and the judge is ordering the release of the documents...............................I guess there are two forms of justice in this country..................................break campaign finance laws using money to pay off woman, have the checks published at Congressional Hearings................................one dude goes to jail..........and the other one is sitting in some room getting up and tap dancing to fix noise and watching the enablers on the white couch and other media outlets, not calling into question what is happening, but want to talk about how big his arena is going to be in North Carolina, because charges have been dismissed.............got it................... ....................now let me see if I can get away with that kind of shit......................................................................
