    Then why not impeach all those in Congress for paying money to women to keep quiet?

    https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/congress-use-slush-fund-pay-17-million-women-sexually-harassed/

    Here is an article stating that Congress has paid some $17 million in hush money to people. I took the liberty of using an article trying to debunk the notion that taxpayer money was being used to pay off women who were sexually abused, that way I figure everyone would accept the information.

    However, this is the best the article could do to debunk this notion.

    "The meme is false — the money isn’t paid from an illegal “slush fund.” It’s unknown how much of the $17 million total over the last 20 years went to sexual harassment claim settlements"

    Hilarious, but somehow the DOJ does not give a damn?

    So why are we only concerned about Trump, who is not being charged with sexual assault and used his own money to pay hush money, but not Congress who has sexually assaulted women an has used taxpayer money to pay them off?

    The deep state is hopelessly corrupt and will consume Trump.

    From the Cohen thread:

    no1: It is a crime to make a campaign contribution above $2700. That is what Cohen did (and pled guilty to) by paying Daniels $130,000 right before the election for the express purpose of not having her go public and hurt Donald Trump's chances of being elected President. And Trump "directed" him to do so making him an accessory.

    Trump and his band of criminal friends and sycophants are hopelessly corrupt and will be dealt with accordingly.

    Assuming it can be proven, fine.

    But is anyone taking his word at anything at this point?

    LMAO!

    They either have the blue dress or they don't, but then, proving someone like Bill Clinton committed a crime in order to win elections is no big deal, right?

    But those in Congress can rest easy at night knowing that they will never be held accountable, just as long as they don't disrupt the powers that be.

    No, if there are criminals in Congress, they too, deserve to be put in jail.

    You (probably) have a lot of corrupt politicians in the US. Its sad in a lot of ways.

    However, voting for Trump will only make it worse. The man's moral compass points straight to hell.

    Cohen made the statements under oath in a courtroom; Trump could volunteer to give statements under questioning by the FBI in response if he wants to.

    Somehow I doubt he will.

    It wasn't too long ago that Trump and his lawyers were loudly claiming that Cohen paid the money on his own with nothing to do with politics (just protecting Trump and his family) and that not a penny of it was reimbursed.

    The first two Congresspeople to endorse Trump were recently indicted. What did they do to disrupt the powers that be?

    When Obama went to appoint his cabinet most of those people were found not to pay their taxes.

    Then they appointed one of them to the head of the IRS.

    Now if they had been Trump supporters, they would all need to hire a lawyer.

    "Most" of them did "not" pay taxes?

    Google it.

    And while you are at it, Google Charley Rangel to see how much the DOJ cares about illegal activity within the Federal government.

    I tried to Google "substantiation of whodey's idiotic, absurdly exaggerated claim," but that didn't help.

    You bring up a very good point here. Any of those politicians that got re-elected should be considered in violation of campaign finance laws going by the Trump hater's own criteria.

    A clear double standard that stinks.

    Google does not work for KN?

    Hmm, Google must have censored it.
