President Trump cleared the air on Fox News, setting the record straight about the Cohen reimbursement payments. Reimbursement for payments made to women who alleged to have an affair with Trump. Payments which the left claims are campaign violations.
During the interview Trump plainly states the payments to his lawyer are from his personal funds and not a violation of any kind. This should end the frenzied madness from the left, but it won’t. Especially if Trump can prove where those funds come from but this has never been about the truth.
Another reason why we all need to show up during the midterms and vote. If Democrats take even the slightest amount of control they will likely work to undo all of Trump’s hard work.

As Reported By Fox News:
In a statement, Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani said: “There is no allegation of any wrongdoing against the President in the government’s charges against Mr. Cohen. It is clear that, as the prosecutor noted, Mr. Cohen’s actions reflect a pattern of lies and dishonesty over a significant period of time.”
Cohen attorney Lanny Davis said his client had pleaded guilty “so that his family can move on to the next chapter.
“This is Michael fulfilling his promise made on July 2nd to put his family and country first and tell the truth about Donald Trump,” Davis added. “Today he stood up and testified under oath that Donald Trump directed him to commit a crime by making payments to two women for the principal purpose of influencing an election. If those payments were a crime for Michael Cohen, then why wouldn’t they be a crime for Donald Trump?”
Separately, Davis told Fox News that Cohen’s involvement in the Trump-Russia investigation does not end with the plea deal, but in fact “it is only the beginning.”
Davis added that Cohen will speak with whoever is investigating the president to make sure the truth about Trump gets out.
