Another Investigation on Trump Appears To God Down without any Charges

Federal prosecutors of New York are stopping their investigation into whether Trump organization executives broke campaign finance laws and are reportedly not to file any charges.

"For months, federal prosecutors in New York have examined whether company officials broke the law, including in their effort to reimburse Michael Cohen for hush-money payments he made to women alleging affairs with his former boss, President Donald Trump," CNN reported. "In recent weeks, however, their investigation has quieted, the people familiar with the inquiry said, and prosecutors now don't appear poised to charge any Trump Organization executives in the probe that stemmed from the case against Cohen."

The investigation centered around whether a $130,000 payment that Cohen made to Daniels — and was later reimbursed for by the Trump organization — constituted a campaign finance violation.

The report notes that there are no indications that the case has been officially closed and former officials warned that new information could always reignite the case.

"Under the law, criminal liability for campaign finance violations attaches only if you intended to violate the law. This requires a certain level of baseline knowledge of the law," Shapiro wrote. "But Trump could easily say that he relied on his attorney, Michael Cohen, to know the law – he’s not a lawyer."
