The FEC dropped its bogus case against President Trump from the 2016 election this past week. Apparently, this was just another effort to besmirch and bring down the President.
It was reported yesterday:
The Federal Election Commission said Thursday that it had formally dropped a case looking into whether former President Donald Trump violated election law with a payment of $130,000 shortly before the 2016 election to a pornographic-film actress by his personal lawyer at the time, Michael Cohen.
The payment was never reported on Trump’s campaign filings. Cohen would go on to say that Trump had directed him to arrange payments to two women during the 2016 race and would apologize for his involvement in a hush-money scandal. Cohen was sentenced to prison for breaking campaign finance laws, tax evasion and lying to Congress.
President Trump responded to this news highlighting the attorneys related to the investigation:
The Federal Election Commission in Washington, D.C., has totally dropped the phony case against me concerning payments to women relative to the 2016 Presidential Election. It was a case built on lies from Michael Cohen, a corrupt and convicted lawyer, a lawyer in fact who was so corrupt he was sentenced to three years in jail for lying to Congress and many other things having nothing to do with me. I thank the Commission for their decision, ending this chapter of Fake News. Between two sleazebag lawyers, Michael Avenatti and Michael Cohen, we were all able to witness law and justice in our Country at its lowest!
