Organized crime. Sounds like Trump is portrayed as a mob figure, or some sort of mafia boss. If that's the case, if true, most mob bosses have goons to do their bodywork for them, the arm twisting leg breakers, cement shoe installers, etc.. I wonder if Trump's goons are the attorneys he hires or has hired in the past (Cohen) who insulate Trump Org. from porn stars via payoffs to keep their mouths shut and an enforcer to tell the party (or else) as described as male figure in a Stormy Daniels statement.
“I was in a parking lot, going to a fitness class with my infant daughter. … And a guy walked up to me and said, ‘Leave Trump alone. Forget the story.’ And then he leaned around and looked at my daughter and said, ‘That’s a beautiful little girl. It’d be a shame if something happened to her mom.’ And then he was gone,” she recalled to Cooper.
Wondering who these people are that Trump has lurking around corners or hiding in the shadows to do his dirty work, those people could also face an indictment too. That is, if all of this is true, right now, most of this whole thing is "alleged".
So, if Stormy was paid $130,000, how was this kind of a payoff initiated? Did Stormy tell Trump if he didn't want to give her some money, she would blab her story to anyone who would listen? If she demanded money, isn't that extortion on her part. Or, did Trump just come out and offer her that amount as long as she kept quiet? And, Trump's lawyer drew up an agreement.
I don't know if I've ever heard of a mobster offering a payoff for someone to stay quiet. Usually a mob figure will exert physical force to make a person keep quiet, in this case, it's looking like both tactics were used.
