Mueller's road to Trump lies through Cohen and campaign finance..

Ben Shapiro via Victory GirlsThis sentencing memo suggests that the SDNY is frustrated with Cohen – but that they think they may have Trump on a campaign finance charge related to payments to his former paramours.

Cohen seems pretty slimy, but a lot of the attention he's getting is due to his involvement with Trump, which doesn't really seem very fair. Oh well.

Getting to Trump on this charge seems like a pipe dream though. Trump has a near-absolute defense: "I relied on my lawyer to do the right thing." And campaign finance violations are almost always remedied by paying fines to the FEC rather than putting elected officials in jail. Not to mention the Clintons' history of paying off bimbo eruptions.
