President Trump directed or was personally involved in multiple payments of hush money to women claiming to have had sexual encounters with him — potentially breaking campaign finance laws, the Wall Street Journal reports.

Michael Cohen tells citizens to vote or face more of "this craziness"

Michael Cohen, President Trump's former personal attorney who recently changed his party registration from Republican to Democrat, has a message for voters:

"Grab your family, grab your friends, grab your neighbors, and get to the poll[s], because if not, you are going to have another two or another six years of this craziness."
— Michael Cohen in a quick interview with CNN Friday outside his Manhattan home.
