The White House continues to defend President Donald Trump after his former attorney, Michael Cohen, told a court on Tuesday that he committed a campaign finance violation under the direction of the then-GOP nominee.
Asked about the bombshell development at a news conference the following day, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders doubled down on prior administration statements.
REPORTS: Michael Cohen in court describes how he violated campaign finance laws concerning hush payments to Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal on behalf of Donald Trump.

“As the president has said and we’ve stated many times, he did nothing wrong,” she said. “There are no charges against him and we’ve commented on it extensively. Just because Michael Cohen made a plea deal doesn’t implicate the president on anything.”
She called one reporter’s inquiry into apparent lies by the commander-in-chief on the subject “a ridiculous accusation,” going on to further plead Trump’s innocence.
“The president, in this matter, has done nothing wrong and there have been no charges filed against him.”
