Prosecutors: Trump directed Cohen to buy women's silence in 2016


Federal Prosecutors revealed new details of Michael Cohen’s crimes as President Trump denies Cohen committed the campaign finance crimes he pleaded guilty to, calling the hush payment a “simple private transaction”. New York Times investigative reporter Megan Twohey tells “The Beat” that “the goalpost has really shifted” from Trump previously alleging he didn’t know about payments to women, to now discussing whether the payments violated law.
