You probably heard the news: Convicted felon and self-styled "Fixer" Michal Cohen is going to Capitol Hill. There, he will peddle his personal fiction about campaign finance violations before a giddy liberal mob.
Don't confuse it for reality. The Democrats may embrace "Orange Man Bad" as a legal theory, but that does not mean the Trump campaign violated federal campaign finance laws in 2016. I'm a campaign finance lawyer in Washington, D.C., and I'm here to tell you: President Trump did not break campaign finance law.
Alas, the liberal media is doubling down on its smoke-and-mirrors routine. CNN and the New York Times aren't stupid: Create enough smoke, and Americans will start believing there's really a fire — even when there isn't. And you've seen the smoke by now: The hush-money payment was allegedly discussed in Trump Tower, so guilty!
Reality check: This so-called "campaign office" is a building owned by President Trump, and where he happened to be. If he discussed the purchase of New York Yankees tickets in the campaign office, that doesn't make it a campaign expense. Campaign offices aren't magical bubbles full of regulatory slime infesting everything they touch. But a Trump campaign official was there, so guilty!
