On Friday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “All In,” House Financial Services Committee Chairwoman Maxine Waters (D-CA) stated that President Trump committed an impeachable offense with his hush money payments. Host Chris Hayes asked if there is already “evidence that he has — he’s implicated in at least one criminal conspiracy, [which] has to do with the hush money payments, and is that not, in your mind, a high crime or misdemeanor?” Waters answered, “Oh certainly, absolutely.

Dershowitz: Stone Indictment Based on Crimes Committed as Result of Russia Investigation, Not Collusion

In a Friday appearance on Fox News Channel’s “America’s Newsroom,” Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz weighed in on Roger Stone’s arrest by the FBI. Dershowitz said Stone’s indictment is “typical” from FBI special counsel Robert Mueller in the Russia investigation because it is a crime that was committed as a result of the investigation rather than as a crime of collusion. “[Mueller] has found almost no crimes that occurred before he was appointed special counsel.

The first piece is the one you just read which is from page 11 of the filing which says that Cohen made these campaign finance payments at the direction of Trump, and we’re talking about payments made for two women for having alleged affairs with Trump and they were going to go public and what happened was Cohen paid those folks and did so in a time when you’re only supposed to give $2700 to a campaign, and that’s it for a very important reason.
