National Enquirer boss granted immunity in Cohen probe

David Pecker

In an interview with Fox News last week, Trump reignited his long-running attack of Sessions, claiming he "never took control of the Justice Department". Alan Futerfas, an outside lawyer for the organization, also did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The verdict and the guilty plea occurred within minutes of one another on Tuesday afternoon, and Cohen directly implicated the president in a pair of campaign finance violations related to his arrangement in 2016 to silence two women who say they had affairs with Trump years earlier.

Such payments could be considered illegal campaign contributions under federal election law, according to experts. David Pecker has been a close friend of Donald Trump for decades; his cooperation with federal prosecutors raises the prospect of new information about Trump's past behavior.

But several reports said the newspaper may not be able to use that defense because it was acting more as a political operation than a news organization.

Trump's base will remain faithful to him to the bitter end, but the people who really matter are turning against him, and it doesn't bode well for his political survival.

Under a reorganization plan announced before Trump's January 2017 inauguration, the business was placed into a trust now controlled by Weisselberg and the president's two adult sons, Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump.

That means it's certainly a fair conclusion that the hush money paid to Daniels was an expense that did not exist "irrespective of the campaign" (the relevant FEC standard), but rather only came about because of the rocky status of the Trump campaign just before the 2016 election.
