Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump’s former fixer, admitted in court while pleading guilty to an eight-count information to paying hush money to two women to secure their silence in order to influence a federal election.  

In addition to admitting that he made a $130,000 payment to Stephanie Clifford, known as Stormy Daniels, to silence her about her alleged affair with Trump, he also admitted to working with the CEO of a media company to pay $150,000 to silence an individual with information that would be “harmful to the candidate.”
