Michael Cohen, Trump's personal attorney, pleaded guilty to five counts of tax evasion, one count of bank fraud, and two counts of campaign finance violations, paying off people to influence the 2016 presidential election at the direction of a "candidate."
Cohen said he kept harmful information about the "candidate" from going public "in coordination and at the direction of a candidate for federal office."
He didn't name Trump specifically, but considering Cohen is Trump's personal lawyer - Trump's self-described "fixer" - and the people who were paid off were women who say they had sex with Trump, it's safe to say he was speaking about Trump.
Oh, and Cohen's lawyer Lanny Davis tweeted it was Trump. It looks like Davis wants Trump to go down with Cohen.
Today he stood up and testified under oath that Donald Trump directed him to commit a crime by making payments to two women for the principal purpose of influencing an election. If those payments were a crime for Michael Cohen, then why wouldn't they be a crime for Donald Trump?— Lanny Davis (@LannyDavis) August 21, 2018
The women who were paid off are former Playboy playmate Karen McDougal and porn star Stormy Daniels.
Stormy Daniel's lawyer, Michael Avenatti, says the likelihood he'll get to question Trump under oath went way up.
The developments of today will permit us to have the stay lifted in the civil case & should also permit us to proceed with an expedited deposition of Trump under oath about what he knew, when he knew it, and what he did about it. We will disclose it all to the public.— Michael Avenatti (@MichaelAvenatti) August 21, 2018
He also trolled Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani.
On MSNBC, Avenatti said Trump has been incriminated.
