Mitchell Comments on Trump’s Knowledge of Campaign-Finance Laws

19 December 2018 The Wall Street Journal News
Partner Cleta Mitchell was quoted in a Wall Street Journal article, “Trump Testimony From Decades Ago Indicates Knowledge of Campaign-Finance Laws,” about how familiar President Trump is with federal campaign- finance laws in the event prosecutors decide to pursue charges against him over hush-money payments to women in the 2016 campaign.

Mitchell, who represented Trump in 2011 when he was accused of violating federal election laws in a previous exploration of a presidential run by accepting illegal in-kind contributions from his business, said a 2000 investigation into allegations that Trump Hotels & Casinos violated the law related to a fundraising event for a Senate candidate largely dealt with different regulations than those prosecutors said were violated in the campaign-finance case against Trump’s former lawyer, Michael Cohen.

“I don’t know how anything in that old matter could be used to show much of anything regarding the whole Cohen payment matter,” she said.
