The FBI is investigating a $150,000 payment that the publisher of the National Enquirer made to a second woman who claims she had an affair with the president, according to a report Tuesday.
The agency executed a search warrant Monday targeting President Trumps personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, that included a request for documents related to Cohens payment of $130,000 to stripper Stormy Daniels. The porn star has said she had an affair with Trump.
But the feds also want to know about a payment made by American Media Inc., which owns the Enquirer, to former Playboy model Karen McDougal, sources told the New York Times. AMIs chief executive is a personal friend of Trumps, the paper said without identifying the person.
McDougal claims that she had a nearly yearlong affair with Trump in 2006.
The FBI also is seeking documents related to Cohens ownership of numerous New York City taxi medallions, CNN said...

Still don’t see a crime here.
And what does any of this have to do with Russia? Oh yeah, bupkis. As we should all realize by now, “Russian Collusion” was just the BS excuse to launch an investigation in search of a “crime” that would be used a s pretext to impeach Trump (and punish him for defeating the Hildebeast).
That’s Whoreme Daniels.
Of course not. The FBI has to see what information it has obtained and then they can craft a crime around the available information. The traditional approach to Law Enforcement went out the window about the time the Clintons showed up.
” a $150,000 payment that the publisher of the National Enquirer made”
So let’s raid a guy next t affiliated with the enquirer..
I think Stormy's silicone implants are filled with Russian vodka.
Trump needs to come out hard today and go hard alpha. Issue a full pardon to Cohen and Flynn. Announce that the Mueller investigation concludes on the last day of April and no excuses will be accepted.
Say on that date Mueller must present all his evidence. Announce that if he refuses, that Session’s, Rosenstein, and Mueller will be fired.
This would allow him to deflect BS claims that he is interfering. It gives them a couple of weeks to make their case if they have one. If they have a case of collusion, time to make it.
It’s for all the marbles anyway, go big.
I love autocowrecked
I saw that new movie “Death of Stalin” the other day. Very worth watching. The history isn’t perfect, it does some things like compress events that took 6 months into a few days. But it absolutely captures that behind the scenes machinations that happened as the power structure scrambled for power.
I couldn’t help but think of our CIA and FBI and the Clinton and Bush families as they have engaged in the American version of sedition. Less murderous by far, but couched in legalisms.
The question of “can it happen here” is moot. It IS happening here.
No, they aren’t. They don’t care about Stormy. They don’t care about Russia. The only thing they care about is finding anything that can be twisted to take down Trump.
So now the New York Post is an agent of Fake news? There may be reasons for the FBI investigating Michael Cohen that have nothing to do with President Trump. This investigation was approved by an Assistant US Attorney for the New York Southern District who happens to be a Trump Appointee.
Let this play out. The American people are smart enough to see what is going on.
I was also thinking about what went on behind the scenes when Khrushchev was replaced with Brezhnev.
Vladimir Putin Spokesman Calls Harvey Weinstein Accusers “Prostitutes”
While speaking in a panel discussion with students at Moscow State University earlier this week, Dmitry Peskov addressed the allegations surrounding Weinstein ...
“Maybe hes a scumbag, but nobody went to the police and said, ‘Weinstein raped me,’ “ Peskov said. No, they wanted to earn $10 million. What do you call a woman who sleeps with a man for $10 million? Maybe Im being crude, but shes called a prostitute.
No, it was not. That guy was recused. Rosenstein signed off on the raid.
A couple of serious questions. (1) WHO at the FBI Approved this witch hunt? (2) Where is the internal email traffic that discusses this and what does it say about Mueller? (3) Why are they interested in the attorney's “taxi medallions” and how does that have anything to do with strippers or port stars?
I hope that DOC IG Horowitz starts another investigation of internal FBI activities and the Sessions realizes this has nothing to do with recusing himself from a Russian investigation.
Stormy Daniels better be running afraid. FBI officials are going to come into one of her PHOTO sessions and want to see the documents... or are they wanting to see something else.., ACLU...where are you?
