To think that the crimes of Cohen and Manafort are going to be the end of Trump, is desperate wishful thinking. Their crimes simply point out that Trump was right in firing them. More likely they were Deep State plants. Regardless of plants or not, since they cant prove Russian Collusion they have to prove Manafort tax fraud and Cohen pay-offs. The more vindictive and desperate "the resistance" gets, the more I trust the plan and enjoy the show.

Assuming this is accurate:
Despite the media hype it is not a campaign contribution for a candidate to instruct his attorney to pay-off a nuisance claim to avoid any issues or embarrassment. It is not a campaign donation for Donald Trump to reimburse his attorney for paying the claim.
♦The issue of the Cohen payment being an “in kind” campaign contribution is the bottom line question which underpins the charge.
There is no FEC rule or law that says a candidate cannot pay-off an accuser to avoid further issues, a nuisance claim. Paying an accuser to avoid controversy or embarrassment, is no different than a candidate buying an American made car -with personal funds- to gain the beneficial public optics of not driving a foreign car. Neither expense example makes the payment an aspect of am “in kind” campaign contribution.
There is no connected claim that President Trump used campaign funds to repay his attorney for eliminating the nuisance claim. President Trump, a businessman, used his own business income to repay his attorney; an attorney on a monthly retainer.
The entire charge of Cohen making a campaign contribution, or campaign finance violation, is a manufactured claim, made only by the SDNY, for political benefit.
How can the charge of a federal campaign finance violation be legally valid? Is there no "Federal Campaign Finance Rules" document? The SDNY prosecutors can't just make up laws, and say someone violated them.
I think I like Trumps way of silencing people, verses Hillary's...

Wow. You're a fast reader. Who would've thought?
Do you think that paying someone to be quiet about something that could damage the chances of someone being elected would not be a material contribution to the election effort?
"If the Hyperborean ‘Vale of the Temple’ site is the same site as described in classic literature as the one where the Apolloian cult of the hidden youth was worshipped, it then follows that the Eden valley is without much doubt the same cult site of Apollo / Maponus, that is alluded to in the Classic writings. Apollo was held by the Roman legionnaires guarding Hadrian’s Wall to be the God of the sun, healing, prophecy, music and hunting. At least this is according to the writings of the Pythagorean cult, which records that at least one of their sources of information on this was the Hyperborean’s own High Priest Abaris, when he visited the Greek philosopher Pythagoras at Kroton in Southern Italy. Abaris had come to Kroton to talk with Pythagoras on matters relating to their individual beliefs, as there were considerable similarities and differences between the Celtic and Pythagorean beliefs, sufficient enough to form a strong bond that would last for centuries. According to the Pythagorean records, Abaris was the High Priest who had served in the temple of ‘Apollo’, which, at the time, was said to be sited in the physical centre of the island of Hyperborea [Britain, not Ireland]. In this temple existed the eternal flame of ‘Apollo’, that was never allowed to go out. There were temple priestesses there, who saw to ‘Apollo’s’ dove sacrifices and tended the sacred flame."
Trump as Hook?
Sure. Why not?
Evil as hell.
Is Mueller the croc? Tick Tock.
