Earlier today, unredacted court documents were revealed that suggest President Trump and Hope Hicks, his former White House Communications Director, played a role in the decision by Michael Cohen, Trump’s ex-lawyer to pay hush money to porn star Stormy Daniels.
The Southern District of New York will not charge Hope Hicks, much to the dismay of the left, who are hungry for blood, especially the blood of anyone connected with President Trump.
Breitbart reports – Federal prosecutors in New York City will not bring additional charges as part of their investigation into payments made to pornographic actress Stormy Daniels orchestrated for former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen prior to the 2016 presidential election, according to the Associated Press.
Cohen pleaded guilty last year to violating campaign finance law by arranging payments to porn actress Stormy Daniels and Playboy centerfold Karen McDougal after they claimed they had affairs with President Trump. The president denies the allegations.
“We are pleased that the investigation surrounding these ridiculous campaign finance allegations is now closed,” Trump’s lawyer, Jay Sekulow, said Wednesday. “We have maintained from the outset that the President never engaged in any campaign finance violation.”
ABC News reports – In unredacted search warrant documents revealed Thursday, an FBI special agent described a series of phone calls in October of 2016 between the president’s former personal attorney, Michael Cohen, the president’s then-campaign press secretary, Hope Hicks, and Trump himself.
In between calls with Hicks and Trump – one of which was a three-way phone conversation – Cohen communicated by text and phone with two executives at American Media Inc., publisher of The National Enquirer, at times immediately afterward. In those discussions, Cohen repeatedly invoked the name “Keith,” referring to Keith Davidson, the lawyer representing adult film star Stormy Daniels.
The content of these communications is not made explicit by the FBI agent, but the timing suggests the group was discussing the hush-payment deal with Daniels.
In a footnote in the documents, the FBI special agent says Hicks later told investigators that “to the best of her recollection, she did not learn about the allegations made by Clifford until early November 2016. Hicks was not specifically asked about this three-way call.”
During her testimony before Congress last month, Hicks denied ever being present during conversations between Cohen and Trump about Daniels, or ever having direct knowledge of Cohen’s payments to Daniels.
Two sources familiar with the probe told ABC News neither Hicks nor anyone else would be charged in the as it relates to the investigation in the Southern District of New York.
