I posted this elsewhere it applies here as well,
TITLE 52—VOTING AND ELECTIONS Subtitle III—Federal Campaign Finance CHAPTER 301—FEDERAL ELECTION CAMPAIGNS SUBCHAPTER I—DISCLOSURE OF FEDERAL CAMPAIGN FUNDS § 30101.
Definitions When used in this Act
(8)(A) The term ‘‘contribution’’ includes—
(B) The term ‘‘contribution’’ does not include—
(xiv) any loan of money derived from an advance on a candidate’s brokerage account, credit card, home equity line of credit, or other line of credit available to the candidate, if such loan is made in accordance with applicable law and under commercially reasonable terms and if the person making such loan makes loans derived from an advance on the candidate’s brokerage account, credit card, home equity line of credit, or other line of credit in the normal course of the person’s business.
The daniels repayment from trump to cohen was a loan from cohen to trump in the normal course of the persons business and not included in the definition of contribution in the CFR. Sorry the talking heads on tv dont tell people this, all you get from them is "it may be a violation". Well the cfr says it is not.

I think that's exactly what he is saying. For some reason, it appears that a large segment of the population has decided they prefer King Mueller. That's not a slam; it's essentially how he is acting. A President must follow Constitutional mandates, while a King does not. A President faces election by the people; a King does not because he is appointed. Mueller was never elected to any office, and has already indicated he does not care about Constitutional restrictions on his power.
It's so ironic where we have found ourselves. In my day, the problem with the police was that some of them would plant evidence to create a crime where none existed (or at least where none could be proven). Today we regularly see stories where people are killed by out-of-control police for minor (and in some cases, for no) violations of law. Planting evidence was the exact same thing Mueller is doing... it was an attempt to get some charge on a person because the police believed in their heart that the person was guilty of something regardless of what the law said. How long before the government now moves to simply executing people without a trial?
The evidence planting and aggressive misuse of force was/is supported by a police department that self-investigates and hides the details of the investigation from the public. Mueller's investigation has been anything but transparent, with no details made available to the public and details even kept secret from the institutions that have full Constitutional authority to see them, i.e. the Congress and now judges in the prosecution cases. National security is a vital part of government and must be respected, but it does not override Constitutional requirements for transparency. Mueller should have been shut down (at least temporarily) the moment the first request by Congress for documentation was denied/delayed.
At this point, Mueller should be immediately shut down and a Congressional investigation into both he and Rosenstein should be started with the goal of impeachment of Rosenstein if warranted. This is indeed a 'witch hunt,' and a poor excuse for one at that. They have Hillary if a witch hunt is desired.
Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein, who oversees the Muellar probe, vowed this week that "the Department of Justice is not going to be extorted" by Republican House members who threaten to impeach him. It was revealed that Muellar has warned that he can serve the president with a Grand Jury subpoena if Trump does not agree to a voluntary interview.

there is nothing to see, assuming Giuliani is 100% right in what he said NO LAW IS BROKEN. I think the Cohen case is more likely to get tossed out for overreach by Mueller.
