Trump’s Attorney Admits that Trump Lied About Making Hush Money Payments to Stormy Daniels

Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg is said to be close to making a decision about indicting Donald Trump in the Stormy Daniels hush money case. Trump is alleged to have committed campaign finance violations related to his paying the adult film star $130,000.00 to buy her silence prior to the 2016 presidential election

Fox News, Stormy Daniels

This is only one of the many pending civil and criminal cases that are cluttering Trump’s legal calendar. He is also being investigated by the New York state Attorney General, the District Attorney of Fulton County, Georgia, and a federal special prosecutor, Jack Smith, probing a pair of offenses: his theft and hoarding of classified documents at Mar-a-Lago, and his role in inciting the January 6th insurrection. Trump is taking these matters seriously, as is evident in his fierce and fear-driven reactions.

Trump is actually so frightened by the legal peril he is facing that he dispatched his attorney, Joe Tacopina, to MSNBC’s “The Beat, with Ari Melber.” Trump and his lawyers must be awfully desperate to agree to an interview on MSNBC, a network that he regards as fake news delivered by radical communists on witch hunts.

Melber gave Tacopina more than ample time to state his case on behalf of Trump. the problem is that he doesn’t have a coherent case to make. And that came out during the following exchange…

Melber: If all of what you say is true…
Tacopina: It is.
Melber: Then why was Trump hiding and lying about it at the time?
Tacopina: If that’s what you’re gonna consider a lie. A lie to me is something material, under oath, in a proceeding. Here’s why it was not a lie. It was a confidential settlement, so if he acknowledged that, he would be violating the confidential settlement. So, is it the truth? Of course it’s not the truth. Was he supposed to tell the truth? He would be in violation of the agreement if he told the truth. So, by him doing that, by him doing that he was abiding by, not only his rights but Stormy Daniels’ rights.
Melber: It seems like we’re drawing some blood here because you’re having a strong reaction. He did lie about it, and in a confidential settlement you can easily say, “No comment” or “I’m not getting into it.”

Melber is right. Trump could have have said “no comment” or declined to respond, rather than to blatantly lie to everyone. But more problematic for Trump (since lying is no big deal for him) is that his lawyer’s excuse for lying was to openly admit that he did, in fact, lie. “Of course it’s not the truth,” Tacopina said. But he claims that he doesn’t consider it to be a lie because it wasn’t said under oath, and because Trump was constrained from disclosing any details of his confidential settlement with Daniels.

However, if it would be a lie had it been said under oath, or absent a non-disclosure agreement, then it’s still a lie. If someone who never attended college says they graduated from Harvard, they are lying whether or not they are under oath or subject to a confidentiality agreement. They may not be committing perjury or breach of contract, but they are lying.

Trump’s lies were in furtherance of a criminal act. He was trying to cover up his illegal campaign expenditures. And now his attorney just conceded that Trump is guilty. He affirmed Daniels’ allegations against him. And he effectively handed a legal victory to the Manhattan District Attorney.

Trump’s next move will likely be to fire his attorney, who he’ll accuse of being a “woke” RINO who is aligned with Antifa and paid by by George Soros. Because he sure doesn’t have any credible legal course of action to take.

UPDATE: Trump was indicted on 34 felony counts “that Trump falsified internal business records at his private company while trying to cover up an effort to illegally influence the 2016 election by arranging payments that silenced claims” of his affair with adult film star, Stormy Daniels.

  1. This attorney, Tacopina must be a stupid SOB for saying the statement he made wasn’t a lie, when it most certainly wasn’t the truth. If someone is telling you something isn’t true, it’s a damn lie!! and nothing else. Is that the best that dumbass can do? I wonder how he even got a law degree? I would think it must have been a correspondence course by the way that nutso Tacopina explains things. I am appalled at the number of uneducated wackos that are in our Federal Government. The main one is Donald TUMP. The number of them in our Congress is really what i am very concerned about, especially one named Marjorie Traitor Goon. I fail to see how that dumb tramp got past elementary school, she can’t even spell easy words. This whole thing is a total disgrace for our once great nation. Just a few years ago, this kind of thing wouldn’t be happening here. Donald TUMP is to blame for the downward spiral of the United States. This is going to get even worse if these deranged despots aren’t removed from our Government.

  2. John, I am a longtime, forever Republican who just happens to see the toxic DDT (Dirty Donald Traitor) in the same light as do you. He not only tried to destroy our country, he is also decimating my GOP. As fas as I am concerned, the bulk of the Reps in Congress are the true RINOs, hence since 2020, I only support Democrats for Congress. Maybe one day, a decent Republican will come alng that I could support besides the ex-Governor of Maryland who has decided to not run right now, which shows me he is a pretty smart guy. I, too, am appallled with the MT Greens, Gaetz, Jordan, Gosar, Ron Johnson, Hawley, Cruz, Boebert and all the rest of the sick trash that has the gall to call themselves Republicans, when, in fact, they are all traitorous RINOs.

    • Ted, what do you think of Liz Cheney? I think she had a lot courage to stand up to TUMP. I have gotten emails to give my opinion of what i think of her, and i gave her very favorable comments. I also have a favorable opinion of Adam Kinsinger …i think i got his first name right… I just wish we could go back to the days when both parties were respectable and there was never anyone accusing the other of cheating. Donald TUMP has ruined everything along with those extremists in Congress, especially that Marjorie Traitor Goon and Matt Gaetz. I have lived in Georgia all of my life and Marjorie T Goon’s headquarters are only about 60 miles north of me. I have read the former Governor of Maryland was a decent guy, i just wished there were more GOP people like him..
