The US President added that Democrats are trying to issue private deals for donations to his election Fund to compromise him.
The President of the United States Donald Trump said that his opponents from the Democratic Party will not be able to achieve the nomination of charges against him in violation of the laws on political donations. He wrote about it on Monday on his personal page on Twitter.
The American leader quoted from the transfer of the Fox News channel, according to which the Democrats failed to find evidence of the collusion of the electoral headquarters of the Trump with Russia in the testimony of the former head of the FBI James Komi Republic which on December 7 spoke at closed hearings before members of the legal Committee and of the oversight Committee of the House of Representatives of the Congress of the United States. “That’s because conspiracy was not” – said the view of the channel is the Republican President.
Trump stated that Democrats are trying to pass off private deals for donations to his election Fund to compromise him. He did not specify what kind of deal he had in mind, but mentioned his former lawyer Michael Cohen. The latter previously testified that on the eve of the presidential election, Trump personally ordered him to pay ex-porn actress and former model in exchange for their silence about the alleged intimate ties with the current US President.
“So now Democrats are turning to ordinary private transactions and mistakenly call them donations to the election campaign, which they were not,” Trump wrote. – But even if there were, it’s only a civil case, like Obama, but it was done correctly by a lawyer, and there will not even be a fine. It’s the lawyer’s responsibility if he made a mistake, not mine.” “Cohen is just trying to get a lighter sentence against him,” Trump said.
Federal prosecutors in Manhattan on December 7 filed documents in the court of New York from which it follows that the former counsel of the Trump Cohen paid the two women the money “in coordination with and at the direction” of a person who at the time was involved in the presidential race in the US, and later he occupied the post of head of the White house. Directly the name of Trump in the documents does not appear, however, as confirmed by the New York Times and the Associated Press, we are talking about the current us President. Trump previously denied that he knew about the payments, arguing that Cohen had acted without his knowledge.
