House Democrats to unleash porn star storm

Democrats in the House are pulling another arrow from their quiver, hoping to shoot their elusive target, President Donald Trump.

They are pinning their hopes on reigniting an explosive, media-driven, rehashed sex scandal, featuring former porn star Stormy Daniels and ex-Playboy Playmate Karen McDougal. Trump reportedly paid them to keep quiet about their decade-old dalliances as he launched his 2016 presidential campaign.

The House Judiciary Committee will hold hearings on the perfectly legal nondisclosure payments as early as October, The Washington Post reported on Monday.

Democrats think they can find proof that Trump committed crimes which they hope will bolster their long shot crusade to bring articles of impeachment against him. They plan to call witnesses who have knowledge of the payments to testify.

Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, loves to bask in the media attention, milking every drop from the presidential spotlight. On Tuesday she excitedly publicized her willingness to testify before Congress under oath.

“I have no fear of being under oath because I have been and will be honest. Bring it!” she tweeted.

The former porn star has been writing an unexpected chapter in the presidential chronicles because of her association with Trump, and fancies herself to be an historic figure.

She would love to be known as the woman that brought down the president and has been an ally of Democrats in their tawdry quest.  McDougal has stayed out of the spotlight, except for media interviews in 2018.

Federal prosecutors from the Southern District of New York had ended their probe into the payments in July with no new charges expected. Former special counsel Robert Mueller also examined them without recommending any prosecutions.

Legal analysts have said they should only be investigated by the Federal Election Commission, and the case is tenuous, at best. House Democrats are not concerned about wasting taxpayers’ time and money for this trivia.

A $130,000 nondisclosure payment had been arranged for Daniels by Trump’s former personal attorney, Michael Cohen. He also arranged for the publisher of the National Enquirer to pay McDougal for her story alleging an affair with the president. The company did not run the story after buying its rights. Executives at American Media Inc., publisher of the tabloid, admitted they helped Trump cover up the payments.

Cohen pleaded guilty last year to violating campaign finance laws regarding a total of US$280,000 payments he made through a shell company. He was repaid with checks signed by Trump and his eldest son, Donald Trump Jr.

 Cohen is currently serving a three-year prison sentence for his role in the payments to the women and other federal crimes he pleaded guilty to last year. He testified under oath earlier this year that Trump directed the payments, but has a history of lying.

The 116th United States Congress, with Democrats in the majority, has been one of the most abusive in its use of power in recent history. The voters handed them electoral victory so they could govern and legislate. Instead they have acted as if the House is an extension of their political party, focusing on avenging political enemies, getting rid of Trump under the guise of ‘oversight’  and winning the next election. They are choosing to rehash this investigation yet again, just to humiliate and harass the president. They have been trying relentlessly to shame him out of office.

Before Trump was inaugurated in 2017, Democrats latched on to an elaborate but ridiculous tale concocted in the debunked, phony Russian dossier produced by British ex-spy Christopher Steele.

It claimed that the FSB, Russia’s main state security agency, and successor to the KGB, recorded Trump in the presidential suite at Moscow’s posh Ritz-Carlton Hotel, watching two prostitutes pee on a bed former president Barack and Michelle Obama slept in. The incident allegedly took place in 2013, when Trump was visiting Moscow to attend the Miss Universe pageant.

They allegedly had the Ritz-Carlton under surveillance, and microphones and hidden cameras were installed in the suite.

 The dossier claimed Russian president Vladimir Putin probably had the tape, and could use it to blackmail Trump. Mueller found no evidence to substantiate this outrageous claim.

While Trump was running for president in 2016, the Democrats came close to driving him out of the race after The Washington Post published a video and story featuring him and television host Billy Bush talking crudely about women in 2005.

Both men were in a bus chatting about Trump’s attempted seduction of a married woman while on their way to film an episode of Access Hollywood, a show owned by NBCUniversal. He was also planning to kiss a woman that he and Bush were about to meet.

 “I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything. Grab them by the p—–y. You can do anything,” Trump said.

 His enemies used his words to accuse him of sexual assault. He had to fight for his political survival after its disclosure and was shunned by many in the Republican Party, but miraculously won the election.

Sex scandals have proven lethal to world leaders throughout history, but somehow none of these have had any effect on Trump’s popularity or electability. Maybe this time the Democrats will strike political gold.
