Flashback: Obama Offered $150,000 Hush Money to Silence Jeremiah Wright – No Charges Were Filedhttps://t.co/XjV5p52CKB— Jack Posobiec ⭐️⭐️⭐️ (@JackPosobiec) December 12, 2018
‘Man, the media ate me alive,” Wright told me when we met in his office at Chicago’s Kwame Nkrumah Academy. “After the media went ballistic on me, I received an e-mail offering me money not to preach at all until the November presidential election.”
“Who sent the e-mail?” I asked Wright.
“It was from one of Barack’s closest friends.”
“He offered you money?”
“Not directly,” Wright said. “He sent the offer to one of the members of the church, who sent it to me.”
“How much money did he offer you?”
“One hundred and fifty thousand dollars,” Wright said.
“Did Obama himself ever make an effort to see you?”
“Yes,” Wright said. “Barack said he wanted to meet me in secret, in a secure place. And I said, ‘You’re used to coming to my home, you’ve been here countless times, so what’s wrong with coming to my home?’ So we met in the living room of the parsonage of Trinity United Church of Christ, at South Pleasant Avenue right off 95th Street, just Barack and me. I don’t know if he had a wire on him. His security was outside somewhere.
“And one of the first things Barack said was, ‘I really wish you wouldn’t do any more public speaking until after the November election.’ He knew I had some speaking engagements lined up, and he said, ‘I wish you wouldn’t speak. It’s gonna hurt the campaign if you do that.’
This comes back to light after the left continues to push that the hush money paid to Trump’s mistresses
NEW: Publisher of the National Enquirer, AMI admits 2016 payment to Karen McDougal "was to suppress the woman’s story" about Trump and "prevent it from influencing the election” https://t.co/rJ5jE9hiDl— TheBeat w/Ari Melber (@TheBeatWithAri) December 12, 2018
In plain terms: Prosecutors are saying the publisher for the National Enquirer admitted it was coordinating with the Trump campaign when it paid $150,000 to Playboy model Karen McDougal so she wouldn't go public with her allegations about an affair Trump before the election. https://t.co/gRmtcehMNc— Kaitlan Collins (@kaitlancollins) December 12, 2018
This once again proves the mockery that is the entire Russia investigation. They can’t prove the major claim that they made originally so now they are searching for something that the Trump Campaign did wrong.
