The "hush money" case never received the attention it deserved... [View all]

It was much more important than portrayed in the media.

Simply because, if it had not been paid, and it had become public information, Trump may never have been elected in 2016. It could have changed the course of history.

But, it was a cover-up.

After all the negative coverage about "genital grabbing", etc., it would not have been a favorable story to try and counter. It should not have been withheld from the public.

For those that say it would not have mattered - that people had already made up their minds - I am not so sure about that.

The idea that Trump and Cohen believed it was important enough to pay to keep it hushed, says a lot about its importance, in my opinion.
