Michael Cohen Cops a Plea

Published: 2018 August 21

Plea establishes as fact that Cohen acted under the direction of a person presumed to be Donald Trump in paying off women (plural) in support of Trump's 2016 presidential campaign, in the process committing 2 counts of unlawful contributions to a campaign. Trump may not be tried in a Federal court, for that, but those are impeachable offenses. So far, so good.
