This is the SDNY prosecutors basically saying "This payment to Stephanie Clifford was a contribution by Michael Cohen to the Trump election campaign because WE say it is."
"And this payment that we're claiming was a campaign contribution was over the legal limit for campaign contributions."

Cohen was stupid for pleading guilty to this. A former FEC chariman has already said on @marklevinshow this isn't a FEC violation.
48 hour rule, people. I think the SDNY prosecutors are playing obvious politics/driving political narratives with this prosecution and it's going to bite them.
And here we go. The facts are already starting to emerge. The SDNY put this political posturing in the eighth count because they knew Cohen would plead guilty to escape doing hard time for the tax/bank fraud.

Here's @marklevinshow interviewing former FEC Chairman Bradley Smith:

The prosecutors tacked this 8th count based on a bogus claim they could never have gotten a conviction on because they *knew* Cohen was going to take the deal no matter what the agreement said rather than do the hard time for the bank/tax fraud he knew they could prove.
