The company that publishes the National Enquirer admitted that it paid $150,000 hush money to silence alleged mistresses of then-presidential candidate Donald Trump prior to the 2016 election, prosecutors said Wednesday.

American Media Inc. will avoid prosecution by stipulating that it worked with Trump’s campaign to buy the silence of women — who have identified themselves as adult film actress Stormy Daniels and former Playboy model Karen McDougal — ahead of the vote two years ago, prosecutors said.

The article goes on to state the following:

“As a part of the agreement, AMI admitted that it made the $150,000 payment in concert with a candidate’s presidential campaign, and in order to ensure that the woman did not publicize damaging allegations about the candidate,” according to a statement by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in New York.

    I’m really not concerned about the President’s sex life. I am concerned about health cost issues, illegal immigration and the safety at the borders. Food and meds safety. School safety.

    I am confused here!! What does this have to do with Russian Collusion??? Who cares what went on before becoming president. We all know these people will say anything to stay out of jail. Such a waste of money and time! Even so, he will still be president for the next 2 years even if he is impeached!

    Mueller tells them what to say, and they avoid prosecution, such a deal. Just to take down a duly elected President. The people should stand up with Trump and say to Washington, NO MORE of this CRAP!
