Re: Orin Kerr

Orin Kerr had comments cited about a possible payment President Donald Trump's lawyer made to an adult-film star to remain silent about a sexual relationship with Trump. “All Cohen says is that he used his personal funds to ‘facilitate a payment of $130,000,'” Kerr writes. “To ‘facilitate’, the dictionary tells us, means to assist with or to make something easier. Given that, I would think that the most literal reading of Cohen’s statement is just that he used his own funds to arrange the payment.” MSNBC also cited the comments.
