I never said the money went to Trump, its clear its insinuated that the money was used to pay off Stormy.
Which is a laughing joke because Trumps a Billionaire
Sorry, I'm just over your's and a number of other posters blatant attempts at pushing a false narrative.
Your sources are always questionable, your the poster child for CNN and it grinds my gears.
I know Trumps not perfect, but the alternative to him was miles worse
Sometimes I think we need a dictatorship so we can hang all the traitors and propagandists.. then return to a Republic so it can be run how it was meant to be run... wishful thinking right
Whatever the case may be, your argument that "Trump is a billionaire" is already looking bad because somebody else *did* pay off Stormy Daniels (Michael Cohen) and that money did *not* come from Trump.
AT&T confirmed Tuesday that it paid President Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen for “insights” on the Trump administration.
AT&T said in a statement obtained by The Hill that Cohen's company "was one of several firms we engaged in early 2017 to provide insights into understanding the new administration."
"They did no legal or lobbying work for us, and the contract ended in December 2017," AT&T added in its statement, which was first reported by CNBC.
Financial records reviewed by The New York Times show that Mr. Cohen, President Trump’s personal lawyer and longtime fixer, used the shell company, Essential Consultants L.L.C., for an array of business activities that went far beyond what was publicly known. Transactions adding up to at least $4.4 million flowed through Essential Consultants starting shortly before Mr. Trump was elected president and continuing to this January, the records show.
Among the previously unreported transactions were payments last year of about $500,000 from Columbus Nova, an investment firm in New York whose biggest client is a company controlled by Viktor Vekselberg, the Russian oligarch. A lawyer for Columbus Nova, in a statement on Tuesday, described the money as a consulting fee that had nothing to do with Mr. Vekselberg.
“Columbus Nova is a management company solely owned and controlled by Americans,” said Richard Owens, a lawyer for Mr. Intrater and Columbus Nova. “After the inauguration, the firm hired Michael Cohen as a business consultant regarding potential sources of capital and potential investments in real estate and other ventures. Reports today that Viktor Vekselberg used Columbus Nova as a conduit for payments to Michael Cohen are false. Neither Viktor Vekselberg nor anyone else other than Columbus Nova’s owners were involved in the decision to hire Cohen or provide funding for his engagement.”

It is your assumption there were bribes and crimes involved.
Incorrect. Only the President could have stopped it, based on the disapproval of even a single member of CFIUS.
I suppose all of the CFIUS members were bribed, and the president as well. And the NRC.
Mueller isn't going after Cohen.

Seems like I remember part of the story surrounding the payoff included Cohen taking out a $130k mortgage... the exact amount paid to the porno queen in question. Why now are you making an assumption that the money must have come from someone else?

They weren't convicted for anything relating to Uranium One. Nor were they convicted for bribing officials or anything like that. They were convicted of arranging a deal to inflate costs in a no bid contract to essential bilk the parent company (Tenem) and split the difference.
I'd also like to point out that the CI that was supposed to blow open Uranium One according to Sara Carter, Hannity, Toensing/diGenova(that's how he capitalizes it) et al turned out to be a complete flop.
Mr. Intrater has, since January 2000, been the Chief Executive Officer of Columbus Nova, the US investment vehicle for the Renova Group which is a multi-national, Zurich-based industrial holding. He is a former Director and current Member of the Executive Board of Renova Group, a global leader in energy, base metals and mining industries. In 1985 he founded ATI, the predecessor of Oryx Technology Corp. Mr. Intrater served Oryx as President and Chief Operating Officer until 1999 as it grew into a leading manufacturer of semiconductor test equipment. While at Oryx he led its 1994 IPO and oversaw two strategic acquisitions, including the purchase of Zenith's power converter division. He also introduced a transportable, secondary ion mass spectrometer to QA groups in the hard disk and magnetic read/write head markets.
Mr. Intrater holds a B.S. in Chemical Engineering from Rutgers University and performed graduate studies in Materials Science at Columbia University.

Are these the "oligarchs" stopped and searched at the airport?
Why were they released if they are criminals?
