Michael Cohen Pleads Guilty

Michael Cohen Pleads Guilty, Says Trump Told Him to Pay Off Women: (“Michael Cohen told a federal judge that Donald Trump directed him to buy the silence of two women who said they had affairs with the future president, in an effort to keep their claims from swaying the 2016 presidential election. * * * The stunning admission by Mr. Cohen, Mr. Trump’s former lawyer, directly implicated the president in a federal crime, alleging that Mr. Trump was actively involved in the decisions to try to bury the women’s stories. Mr. Cohen’s plea escalates pressure on a president who has already seen three other associates charged with felonies and a fourth convicted by a jury on Tuesday. * * * Mr. Cohen pleaded guilty Tuesday to eight criminal charges, including campaign-finance violations, and said he paid $130,000 to adult-film actress Stephanie Clifford, known professionally as Stormy Daniels, and coordinated a $150,000 payment by the publisher of the National Enquirer to former Playboy model Karen McDougal.”)
