HUGE! Former FEC Member & Dem Attorney Both Say: ‘Trump Payments Aren’t Criminal’

The left has been crowing that President Trump is going to prison after what happened to rat Michael Cohen, but now the experts are weighing in & Dems aren’t going to like it one bit.

Fox News is reporting:

“Former Federal Election Commission member Hans Von Spakovsky said Friday that the hush money payments made by President Trump are not criminal offenses.

Trump’s payments to Playboy model Karen McDougal and adult film star Stormy Daniels have been scrutinized and looked upon as campaign finance violations.

The president himself has refuted the argument, calling the payments a “simple private transaction.”

Spakovsky said on “Fox News @ Night” that neither the commission nor its former chairs see the payments as campaign-related.

“It’s a personal expense. It’s the same as a business expense of a business owner. It’s not related to the campaign,” he said.

Former Democratic Chief Counsel Julian Epstein said that “the statute is not clear” when it comes to what a campaign finance violation is.

He added that he’s “skeptical” as to whether the argument against Trump would hold up in a court of law.

“During the Clinton impeachment, I and a lot of Progressives and Democrats were arguing the president isn’t above the law, but he’s also not beneath the law and that Clinton shouldn’t be prosecuted in that case because civil perjury in that situation would have never been prosecuted,” he said. “Some of that reasoning stands here as well.”

Both Epstein and Spakovsky agreed that people would be “celebrating too early” if they think a campaign finance prosecution against Trump would be a good idea.”

Here’s what fake news Washington Post had to say about all this:

“The developments have shaken people in Trump’s orbit. White House staffers say they feel uneasy and nervous about what might come next, while Trump is publicly revealing a sense of betrayal that his longtime lawyer implicated him in crimes.

Trump is worried about the intensifying state of not only the hush-money investigation by the U.S. attorney in the Southern District of New York, but also of the Russia probe by special counsel Robert S. Mueller III, according to people with knowledge of the president’s private discussions.

“He’s never been in a position where he can’t shuck and jive and work his way out of things,” said one Republican who works closely with the White House. “Well, it’s all coming home to roost.”

Notice WaPo doesn’t name the “Republican” who “works closely with the White House”? They made it up or it’s just a low-level staffer who doesn’t know what he or she is talking about.

And then libs spout nonsense like this on social media:

Chris Lu is a former White House Cabinet Secretary; Deputy Secretary of Labor and was Obama’s Presidential Transition Director so it figures he’d be spouting this garbage.

And Scott Dworkin, lead investigator for the Democrat Coalition:

What a Dwork.

Now let’s hear what the experts have to say.

Boom. The left is full of it. Trump did nothing wrong & he’s not going anywhere. Even Dem experts agree on that.

Share this if you think Trump did nothing wrong & Dems are crying because they have nothing on him!
