Steve Bannon: Trump paid off '100 women' during campaign- that's a lot of felonies (VIDEO)
President Donald Trump should learn how to keep friends, instead of turning them into enemies. If he learned this lesson, he probably wouldn't be facing half the turmoil currently hanging over his head right now.
Steve Bannon is one of those people. He was Trump's former top strategist who can largely be credited with propelling the Donald into the White House.
Bannon revealed in the tell-all book by journalist Michael Wolff that Michael Cohen isn't the only attorney of Trump's to pay hush-money to women. Trump also allegedly enlisted his other longtime attorney Marc Kasowitz, who "took care" of 100 women during the campaign.
"Look, Kasowitz has known [Trump] for twenty-five years. Kasowitz has gotten him out of all kinds of jams," Bannon reportedly said. "Kasowitz on the campaign — what did we have, a hundred women? Kasowitz took care of all of them."
That's a whole lot of women. That's also a lot of felonies. Trump is alleged to have violated campaign finance laws with each payoff he made with Michael Cohen, who just this week was sentenced to three years in prison, in part due to those payoffs that he pled guilty to. He also claims (and has an audio recording that was made public) that Trump directed those payoffs. Attorneys for the Department of Justice are saying Trump is on the hook for that.
Now - we have this allegation from Bannon according to Wolff, and if there is any truth to it, it will have to be devastating to Trump and this White House. There's no way around it. 100 women is hard to cover-up and slide under a rug.
Let's dig a little deeper: Business Insider originally contacted Kasowitz after Bannon made the assertion and he is calling it a total lie.
"The statements attributed to Stephen Bannon about Marc Kasowitz in Michael Wolff's book are pure fiction," he said.
Remember - Cohen denied everything in the beginning, too, saying Stormy Daniels was lying.
Michael Cohen also hasn't revealed everything he knows yet.
Cohen sat down with ABC News for an exclusive interview on Friday and claimed that not only did Trump know about the payoffs but everything Trump says is a lie. It was in this interview that he alluded the public has a lot more to learn about Trump but he is waiting on Mueller's report to release before he divulges it.
