President Trump’s disgraced former personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, copped a plea deal on Tuesday in the U.S. District Court in Manhattan that includes his making a criminal campaign contribution in the form of hush money to Stormy Daniels.
Mark Levin and former chairman of the Federal Election Commission Brad Smith discussed this “non-crime” on The Mark Levin Show Tuesday night. Levin correctly points out that Cohen pleaded guilty to “a non-existent crime.”
Brad Smith later tweeted, “No matter how you cut it, paying blackmail to an alleged mistress is not an obligation that exists because you are a candidate, and hence not a campaign expenditure.”
Democrat and Washington fixture Lanny Davis, one of Cohen’s lawyers, tweeted on Tuesday, “If those payments were a crime for Michael Cohen, then why wouldn’t they be a crime for Donald Trump?”
That was bad judgment by Lanny, as I explained: “Lanny’s tweet helps Trump, hurts Lanny. His client pled to a ‘crime’ that is neither a campaign contribution nor a crime. Lanny exposes political motive of that plea deal.”
