This afternoon, in a new bombshell report by the Wall Street Journal, it was revealed that Donald Trump knew EVERYTHING that Michael Cohen did in order to pay off Stormy Daniels and model Karen McDougal. Trump was fully aware that hush money was being funneled through campaign contributions in order to silence the two women and at one point even told Cohen to “get it done.”
According to the Journal, Cohen told investigators that Trump not only knew about the schemes that Cohen was cooking up, but he was also a willing participant, even though Cohen warned him that it was illegal.
The WSJ reports:
‘He told federal prosecutors he conferred with Mr. Trump in the weeks before the 2016 election about paying Stephanie Clifford, the former adult-film star known professionally as Stormy Daniels, to keep quiet about her allegations of a sexual encounter with Mr. Trump. He told them that Mr. Trump urged him to “get it done.”‘
On Friday, during an interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, Stormy Daniels’ attorney Michael Avenatti said that Trump should be indicted immediately over this news.
Avenatti then reiterated his concerns on Twitter where he said:
‘In light of the sworn testimony and evidence relating to the payment to my client and Trump’s involvement (confirming our allegations), we are calling for the immediate indictment of the president. No one is above the law in the United States.’

The Twitterverse agreed:
It remains to be seen what will become of these new revelations, but one thing is for certain — Avenatti is not going to let this go.
