    Hush money that was never intended to be paid back?

    Again .....

    The desperation is astounding.

    You keep clicking your heels in that lil' Alt Left Universe you are living in and hoping that the DOJ can somehow make this hush money into a loan.

    Do you really think Comey made a gift of $130,000 just out of the goodness of his heart?
    If that's so, why did Trump pay it back?

    The 130 grand? If it wasn't a loan, was it a gift? What was it?

    Of course I know it. Hush money paid by Cohen and repaid to Cohen by Trump, who denied knowing anything about it. So, either it was a loan, and paid back, or it was a campaign donation, and therefore illegal. Take your pick.

    Again ....

    It really doesn't matter what you think it was.

    What matters is if the DOJ can convince a Judge that this was a loan.

    And, that lil' Alt Left Universe fantasy isn't going to happen.

    Which "lil' Alt Left" fantasy? That Cohen made an illegal campaign donation, or that Trump lied about not knowing about the hush money?

    I'm betting on the latter, just because lying is what Trump does best.

    Great - so worst case we have some campaign finance FEC violation. Who really cares? Anyone remember when this was supposedly about the Trump Campaign colluding with Russia to win the election?

    Trump colluding with Russia is still an ongoing investigation. No proof of that yet, but plenty that Russia meddled in the election. This is about paying off a porn star to keep quiet, then lying about it. Just par for the course for Trump and his minions.
