Rudy Giuliani’s comments that Donald Trump compensated his lawyer for the $130,000 payment to Stormy Daniels are going to cause many problems for the president, infers Lauren Pearle of ABC News. As this payment happened days before the 2016 election and with Trump’s knowledge, it could violate campaign finance laws. It might be labeled as a campaign contribution, which would be very bad for the president. Already, various entities have encouraged the Federal Election Commission to investigate into this matter. Crucial may be some of the documents seized from Michael Cohen’s home on April 9.
The revelation that President Trump organized his lawyer’s $130,000 payment to Stormy Daniels is unlikely to affect him negatively, holds Michael Graham of the Boston Herald. What is important here is that while 74% of Democrats already wanted him out of the White House, 89% of Republicans stand by him. Current media waves created by Rudy Giuliani’s comments exaggerate the change that will actually come from this. The cult of loyalty that Trump supporters have for him will likely allow him to weather this storm unharmed. It was already known that he had done some questionable things. Trump’s fans won’t be swayed by this.
