Donald Trump Called Election Time Payments to Silence Women a "Simple Private Transaction"

Targeted: Democrats in Congress & James ComeyAbout: Russia
Donald Trump lashed out at Democrats for refusing to give up on the Russian "WITCH HUNT!", especially since they haven't found a "Smocking GUN" [sic] to bring him down. Trump then went on to casually admit giving secret payments to a porn star and another woman he had an affair with weeks before the 2016 election, but claimed it was a "simple private transaction." Unfortunately for Trump, it was anything but simple because he was running for President of the United States and Federal law prohibits him from doing something like that.

“Democrats can’t find a Smocking Gun tying the Trump campaign to Russia after James Comey’s testimony. No Smocking Gun...No Collusion.” @FoxNews  That’s because there was NO COLLUSION. So now the Dems go to a simple private transaction, wrongly call it a campaign contribution, which it was not (but even if it was, it is only a CIVIL CASE, like Obama’s - but it was done correctly by a lawyer and there would not even be a fine. Lawyer’s liability if he made a mistake, not me). Cohen just trying to get his sentence reduced. WITCH HUNT!
