In Trump’s Stormy Daniels Case, Echoes of Failed Hush Money Case Against Senator John Edwards

From a Washington Post story ‘s by Rosalind S. Heiderman headlined “In Trump case, experts see echoes of failed case against Sen. John Edwards”:

A politician hiding a dark secret, even as he sought the nation’s highest job. Hush money slipped to a woman to secure her silence. Criminal charges filed years later.

The storyline is now familiar to those following the indictment of former president Donald Trump in New York, in a case seemingly related to Trump’s payoff to adult film actress Stormy Daniels in the waning days of the 2016 presidential campaign.
