Giuliani makes new defense of Stormy Daniels, Karen McDougal payments
By Niall Stanage - 12/19/18 03:44 PM EST

President Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani floated a new line of defense Wednesday regarding payments to Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal in the final stretches of the 2016 presidential campaign.

In an unsolicited text to The Hill on Wednesday afternoon, Giuliani argued that those payments would not violate campaign finance laws “even if a purpose was to aid the campaign.”

Such payments would be defensible, he argued, so long as “there is a strong personal component to a payment — like protecting your wife, children and family from scandal.”

The payments, facilitated by Michael Cohen, the president’s former personal attorney, were intended to keep the women from going public with allegations they had affairs with Trump a decade previously. Trump denies the affairs.

Couldn't the same case be made about lying to investigators and a grand jury about having an affair with an intern (especially as that was not related to the charge brought before them?)

    Giuliani is worthless proving once again that Trump 'I hire only the best people' was just another fabrication on monumental scale. 
No government in the 6,000 years of modern mankind history has led its people into anything but the history books with a simple lesson, don't let this happen to you.
