Report: Trump Allegedly Paid Hush Money For Eight Abortions (The Intellectualist link): According to The Spectator, President Donald Trump might have paid as many as eight women to have abortions and stay quiet about sexual affairs — which would be felony offenses, if they occurred during his presidential campaign.
"There are rumors, too, of Trump mistresses paid to have abortions and kept quiet with non-disclosure agreements. One source tells Cockburn that there are eight such women. This is more than merely sad and sordid: if any of these payments were made while Trump was running for President, there would be new campaign finance violations, all felony offenses. [Michael] Cohen was said to have handled all this. Cohen was also a vice-president of the Trump Organization and knows about how the secretive family business was conducted. This matters because state prosecutors in New York are now said to be looking again at how condos in Trump buildings were sold – not by Trump, but by his older children, Don Junior, Eric and Ivanka."

SPOTTED: Michael Cohen, on the train from Washington DC to New York city last night. President Trump’s former lawyer was returning home after a day trip to the nation’s capital. If he thought he could slip in and out un-noticed, he was mistaken. ABC News put up a brief story online, implying that he was probably there to meet Robert Mueller, the Special Counsel investigating the Trump campaign and Russia.
So the whiff of panic comes from the President’s Android phone when he tweets about the man he once trusted (allegedly) to do his dirty work. ‘If anyone is looking for a good lawyer, I would strongly suggest that you don’t retain the services of Michael Cohen!’ But what – if any of these allegations are proven – did the ‘dirty work’ consist of? Cohen has already admitted to breaching campaign finance rules by paying hush money to a porn ‘actress’, Stormy Daniels, who claims she had an affair with Trump. He says he did this at the direction of the man who would shortly be elected to the Presidency.
So, Michael Cohen, hero of the resistance?
“There are other instances of this involving other women,” George replied. “And there’s also the Saudi connection that David Pecker has obtained through President Trump.”
“Well, you know, American Media [parent company of the National Enquirer] put out a Saudi special, a tourism special earlier this year, seemingly out of left field. It was racked at Walmart, and it was a glossy, and it wasn’t the terrain for, as usual, with The Enquirer. And then shortly after that, The Enquirer, bought up, swallowed up its competitor, Bauer publications, so the money came from somewhere. I think it’s suspicious and a lot of people do.”
