Fox News star Sean Hannity has found a smoking gun letter from Michael Cohen’s old lawyer that could sink Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s case against President Donald Trump.
Cohen, a disgraced former lawyer for the 45th president, is being celebrated by the Democrats and their media allies as the “star witness” in George Soros-funded Bragg’s “get Trump” case.
Stephen M. Ryan, Cohen’s counsel, sent a letter to Jeff Jordan, the Assistant General Counsel at the Complaints Examination & Legal Administration for the Federal Election Commission.
In the letter, Ryan claims that Cohen paid Stormy Daniels with his own money and “neither the Trump Organization nor the Trump campaign was party” to the arrangement.
The letter says: “In a private transaction in 2016, before the U.S. presidential election, Mr. Cohen used his own personal funds to facilitate a payment of $130,000 to Ms. Stephanie Clifford.
“Neither the Trump Organization nor the Trump campaign was a party to the transaction with Ms. Clifford, and neither reimbursed Mr. Cohen for the payment directly or indirectly.
“Contrary to the allegations in the complaint, which are entirely speculative, neither Mr. Cohen nor Essential Consultants LLC made any in-kind contributions to Donald J. Trump for President, Inc., or any other presidential campaign committee.
“Mr. Cohen has not been a government employee during any of the relevant time period.
“The payment in question does not constitute a campaign contribution or expenditure and, therefore, the FEC lacks jurisdiction over this matter.
“The complainants have not and cannot present any evidence to the contrary.
“Accordingly, the complaint should be dismissed.”

Trump responded to the bombshell letter by calling for an end to the “witch hunt” against him.
“Wow, look what was just found—A Letter from Cohen’s Lawyer to the Federal Election Commission,” Trump said in a post on Truth Social.
“This is totally exculpatory and must end the Manhattan District Attorney’s Witch Hunt, immediately.
“Cohen admits that he did it himself.
“The D.A. should get on with prosecuting violent criminals, so people can walk down the sidewalks of New York without being murdered.”
