Fox News Reporter: WSJ‘s Story on Trump’s Payoffs to Stormy Daniels/Karen McDougal is a ‘Really Big Deal’

On Friday night, a Fox News reporter stressed the importance of a bombshell report that came from the Wall Street Journal.

The WSJ reported that President Donald Trump is directly implicated in the payoffs of alleged mistresses Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal during the 2016 election and was “involved in or briefed on nearly every step of the agreements. He directed deals in phone calls and meetings with his self-described fixer, Michael Cohen, and others.”

Fox News Washington correspondent Kristin Fisher appeared on Fox News @ Night and gave Shannon Bream a recap from the report.

“This report from The Wall Street Journal is a really big deal because it raises the possibility that President Trump may have violated federal campaign finance laws,” Fisher said.

As part of her report, Fisher showed a clip from Trump’s interview with Fox News back in August, insisting the money came from his own bank account and not from his campaign, adding that if he spent at least $2,700 from the campaign as part of the payoffs, he would be “convicted of a federal campaign finance crime.”

“Tonight, there is certainly more evidence than there was this morning that the president of the United States might have violated some kind of campaign finance law,” Fisher reported. “There is still a considerable amount of debate over whether a sitting president could actually be indicted.”
