The Intellectualist: Trump Allegedly Paid Hush Money For Eight Abortions

Mod: Highly sordid information revealed as part of the Cohen plea deal continues to emerge. Citing a British news source called the Spectator, here is some of the latest speculation on what exactly is being bandied about per The Intellectualist.

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."

Mod: Here that Spectator article. It is also available at this link.


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.

This was the purpose of the visit – if not Mueller, then Mueller’s staff – though he was already on his way home by the time the ABC piece ran. No one could say what, specifically, he was talking to Mueller about – however, he brought his own lawyer along for the meeting. Was this the signing of the immunity agreement that the American media have long speculated could help bring down his old boss? Cockburn can’t say, though he does know that even before Mr Cohen came to Washington, he had racked up 80 hours of discussions with various prosecutors (more than the 50 hours that has been widely reported). Clearly he has a lot to get off his chest.

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.

A Wall Street Journal report on how this was done landed like a mortar bomb in the Rose Garden on Friday. The details are devastating. ‘What can you do to help my campaign’ the story has Trump asking David Pecker, publisher of the National Enquirer. Pecker was – it’s claimed – brought on board to help Cohen silence Stormy Daniels, and another woman, a former Playboy model called Karen McDougal. Trump asks Cohen: ‘So, what are we gonna pay…150?’ Cohen replies, ‘Yes’ to the payment of $150,000 to McDougal. There is, allegedly, a recording of this conversation.

There are rumors, too, of Trump mistresses paid to have abortions and kept quiet with non-disclosure agreements. One source tells Cockburn that there could be as many as eight such women. (Cockburn should point out that Trump has been the subject of rumors about secret abortions for years, and has admitted no such thing.) But this is more than merely sad and sordid: if any such payments were made while Trump was running for President, there could be new campaign finance violations, all felony offenses. 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.

But what Cohen has to say about Russia could matter more. Cohen and his lawyer, Lanny Davis, continue to deny – emphatically – that he ever went to Prague to meet Russian agents, as is claimed in the ‘dossier’ written by a former MI6 officer, Christopher Steele. Cohen has told people he is being ‘framed’ for Prague – the story, after all, amounts to an allegation of treason. But he has also hinted, privately, that he has other things to say about the Trump campaign’s (alleged) links to the Kremlin… conversations he witnessed, rather than things he did. People who’ve met him in recent weeks say he seems like a recovering victim of Stockholm syndrome; he was humiliated publicly by Trump for years. The man who once said he’d ‘take a bullet’ for the President now calls him a ‘son of a bitch’. He feels that Trump should leave office in disgrace and if he can help with that, why not?

So, Michael Cohen, hero of the resistance?

Fmr National Enquirer Editor: David Pecker Gave Trump Org 'Free Rein' to 'Dictate the Coverage' (Mediaite link): During an interview with Erin Burnett on Wednesday, former National Enquirer Los Angeles Bureau Chief Jerry George said Donald Trump did indeed wield considerable power at National Enquirer and was, as others have suggested, a “silent editor” who could nix a story he did not like. He then said this: “David Pecker had given the Trump Organization free rein to dictate the coverage, and of course, you know, cover up any unflattering stories about the candidate during the election.”

“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.”

  2. Now that explains why the President is a right to life guy.
    If he could pay for eight abortions then there is no reason why everyone could not pay for their own, no more government spending on Planned Parenthood.
    If you are too poor to pay for aborting services then stop having sex.

  6. https://www.rawstory.com/2018/12/trump-abruptly-cancels-traditional-white-house-christmas-party-reporters-fox-news/

    President Donald Trump has reportedly squashed a decades-long tradition by canceling the annual White House Christmas party for members of the media.

    Fox News’ Howard Kurtz reports that the Christmas party has become “a victim” of Trump’s “increasingly contentious relationship with major news organizations.”

    Just because the annual media Christmas party is canceled doesn’t mean that no one in the media industry will be going to the White House for holiday festivities, however, as Kurtz reports that “selected media people generally favorable to Trump, including a few Fox News hosts” have been invited to “a full panoply of other parties this holiday season.”

    Trump this year has regularly labeled the press as the “enemy of the people,” and the White House also went through a failed attempt to revoke CNN reporter Jim Acosta’s White House press pass.

    1. Why cancel? Trump could just limit the invitations to kindred spirit media outlets like FoxNews, RT, Fox & Friends, Tass, Sputnik, and the National Enquirer. Hannity can host.

      If Pence can't make it, it would be great fun bring a Pence mannequin and move the arms every 45 minutes or so. Same thing. For hijinks, put a "No, impeach me!" sign on his back. Lot's of holiday fun! Dah!

  9. High time the President cancelled some of those elaborate and expensive parties thrown by past Presidents in the White House, the Correspondence Dinner should remain cancelled also.
    The money saved by this President is commendable.
    CEOs from across the country can throw their own parties for their staff, maybe left overs would be distributed to the homeless.

    2. Yep, saving a few $10s of thousands for a couple of parties is commendable.

      Anyone know when Russian Asset Trump's US taxpayer funded golf trips are expected to cross the $100 million mark? How much over $1 trillion is his tax cut for the rich adding to the US deficit?
