Developments in Trump Case of Daniels

Federal Electio

Commission issued a decision to halt the investigation into the case of former US President Donald Trump, paying actress Stormy Daniels in exchange for her silence about a relationship she had with him. For his part, Trump welcomed the decision, saying: “The Federal Election Commission in Washington has completely dropped the bogus lawsuit against me for the payment of money to women related to the 2016 presidential elections.” He added, “I thank the committee for its decision, and for putting an end to this chapter of misleading news.” Trump attacked his former lawyer Michael Cohen, saying, “It was a case based on lies told by Michael Cohen, a corrupt and convicted lawyer.” The Federal Election Commission was investigating whether Cohen, Trump’s personal attorney at the time, paid Daniels $ 130,000 in violation of campaign finance laws. Cohen was sentenced to three years in prison after pleading guilty in 2018 to his guilt, and Trump has not been charged in the case, and the Federal Election Commission, which includes members equally between Republicans and Democrats, said Thursday that it had reached a dead end in its investigations, and thus ended the investigation. Cohen, who severed ties with Trump and turned into a public opponent of him, received the election commission’s decision not to ratify, as he described it
