Framing the crime that our ex-President committed and is now being investigated for is NOT A HUSH MONEY PROBE! Despite what talking points people, media and Republicans are spreading, it is not about hush-money.
Hush money is simple crime and quite possibly a misdemeanor. No, this is for violations of Campaign Finance violations in 2016. Just before the election $130,000 was paid to Stormy Daniels to keep quiet about the sex they had. Now, alone that would not be a big deal.
BUT, Trump had his lawyer pay her and then he paid the lawyer with his funds. Unreported, this is an illegal campaign donation. It is difficult to say is isn't a big deal, when Trump's lawyer was sentenced to years in jail for this actual crime. And, if you don't remember, his co-conspirator was Donald Trump.
It is a law designed to keep our country safe from illegal donations and foreign interference, both of which can be used to blackmail the government. So, no - it was not hush money. And, yes - it is a big deal.
