    He should have been. The democratic leadership are losers who have no spine and have been too afraid to enforce the law against the criminal Republican administrations. Nancy Pelosi's political incompetence should not be taken to be evidence of Trump's innocence.

      They were payments made to keep Trump’s sordid sexual shenanigans hidden from the public so as to not impact negatively on his campaign. So yes, they were “campaign contributions”.

      If they were, Trump would already be deposed. You and I both know it.
      This is still under investigation; he may yet be deposed as a consequence.

        None of that matters. It is Trump. To the TDS crowd everything he does is part of a nefarious plot to achieve world domination while exterminating everyone who isn't white.

          In starlightland Democrats have no trouble concocting fake charges to try to impeach Trump over (collusion, quid pro quo...) but are too to enforce any of the actual laws he breaks.

          Just what color is the sky in the world you inhabit?

                  It was nearly $300,000 in unreported campaign cotributions. That's a crime, called campaign finance fraud

                    That's why the Democratic leadership needs to be replaced by competent people who actually have strong values and spines, like Bernie Sanders, AOC and the rest of the squad, etc.

                    But in the meantime, for the sake of America, I'd choose weak and pathetic losers like Pelosi and Schumer, over the actively criminal and evil Republicans any day of the week.

                      It worked for him when it came to those two sordid cases.

                              The fact that we are discussing this, and that the details are public, shows it didn't actually work at all, Jim.
