International Business Times: Manhattan DA Won't Charge Trump, Organization Over 'Hush Money' Payments, Lawyer Says
Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance suggested that he has no plans to charge former President Donald Trump and his organization over allegations of “hush money” payments said to be sent to two women shortly before the 2016 election, Trump’s lawyer said Monday. …
Previously, the FEC also failed to sanction Trump for the $130,000 “hush money” payments made to Daniels, according to Common Cause, an advocacy group that filed the complaints with the FEC.
“Trump masterminded this whole thing, and so far he’s walked. Everyone who carried out his dirty work here, Cohen and AMI, paid penalties and did prison time. It’s good news that the Federal Election Commission is holding the tabloid company AMI accountable for its illegal actions in the 2016 election,” Paul S. Ryan, Common Cause vice president for policy and litigation said in a statement following the FEC’s decision.
“But it’s head-scratching that the mastermind of this criminal enterprise, Donald Trump, has still not been held accountable,” he added.
