BUSTED: National Enquirer admits it committed a felony 'in concert with' Trump's campaign


American Media, Inc., the parent company of the National Enquirer tabloid, admitted on Wednesday to committing a felony campaign finance violation “in concert with” Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.

As announced by the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York, AMI admitted to making a $150,000 hush-money payment to Playboy model Karen McDougal “in order to ensure that the woman did not publicize damaging allegations about the candidate before the 2016 presidential election.”

SDNY said that it has chosen not to prosecute AMI for the illegal campaign contribution at this point provided that the company continues cooperating with the investigation.

The office also acknowledged that AMI had provided “substantial and important assistance” with its investigation into the illegal campaign contribution.

The revelation that AMI has admitted to making an illegal payment to a former Trump mistress with the specific intent to swing the outcome of the election will undercut the president’s claims that paying off Playboy model Karen McDougal and adult film star Stormy Daniels was a simple business transaction.

Earlier this year, the Wall Street Journal reported that AMI CEO David Pecker had been granted immunity by prosecutors in exchange for providing information about his company’s role in the hush-money payments.

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

She looked a little fragile at the ceremony this evening. Let's all say a prayer for Ruth Bader Ginsberg today. May she live a ridiculously long, strong and healthy life.

As if this entire presidency couldn't be more bizarre...

Today, Trump boarded Air Force One with toilet paper stuck to his shoe.


For the 1000s of Women, Survivors & Allies At The Hart Senate Bldg Today


I am woman, hear me roar
In numbers too big to ignore
And I know too much to go back and pretend
'Cause I've heard it all before
And I've been down there on the floor
No one's ever gonna keep me down again.

Oh yes, I am wise
But it's wisdom borne of pain
Yes, I've paid the price
But look how much I gained
If I have to, I can do anything
I am strong
I am invincible
I am Woman!

You can bend but never break me
'Cause it only serves to make me
More determined to achieve my final goal
And I come back even stronger
Not a novice any longer
'Cause you've deepened the conviction in my soul.

Orrin Hatch Waves Off Women Rape Survivors and Tells Them To "Grow Up"

Please VOTE in the midterms and take 10, 20, or more folks with you. If you're not eligible to vote, take the day off and drive folks who are eligible to the polls. Go to the retirement communities and volunteer to drive folks to the polls. Anything you can do. Anything. To say that our very lives depend on it is an understatement. There is no "bottom" with these Republicans.


Trump Inaugural Committee Got Foreign Money, Plea Deal Shows

Source: Bloomberg News

A former Paul Manafort associate who pleaded guilty to a lobbying crime admitted that he helped foreign donors give money to President Donald Trump’s Inaugural Committee.

In a plea agreement made public Friday, prosecutors outlined other crimes that the lobbyist, Sam Patten, admitted to but wouldn’t be charged with. Among them was “causing foreign money” to be paid to the Trump inaugural committee. Patten signed off on the allegation.

Patten pleaded guilty earlier Friday to failing to disclose his lobbying on behalf of Ukraine, and agreed to cooperate with prosecutors.

According to a court filing, Patten’s Ukrainian client wanted to attend the Trump inauguration in January 2017, but the inauguration committee couldn’t accept money from foreign nationals. Foreign nationals can’t contribute to a presidential inauguration, according to Federal Election Commission rules.
