I mean it is a crime and why Cohen went down but is the juice worth the squeeze? No. Out of all the legally questionable things he's done his whole career, this seems small.
But he has essentially been begging to be charged because he knows the kind of momentum it'll give him. Which is why I found TH's posts so comical. Trump got exactly what he wanted. The republican party was ready to move on. This brings them back.
I don't think he wins in 24. DeSantis gives Republicans a better shot but Trump doesn't care about that.
Cohen is why lots of Prosecutors passed on pursuing the case. His credibility is shot.
He was also convicted of tax evasion, false statements to banks and not properly reporting his reimbursements from the Trump Campaign which is a violation of campaign finance laws
Paying hush money is SOP for any and all campaigns do this. Not really illegal to essentially pay for an NDA
I agree this helps Trump. He is ok with it. He now has a Boogey Man to fight and that’s when he is at his best and most effective. One of the main reasons Team Biden won the WH is because they never gave Trump anything firm to fight against. They just kept Joe in the basement and away from the Press and it was the path to victory
I absolutely want DeSantis to win the Nomination. I think he’d be a good President. But Trump has a rabid motivated Base. That base has indicated they won’t vote for DeSantis. And as short sighted as I think that is it’s where we are at
