Hush Money Scandal Redux

Just when you thought former President* Pennywise couldn’t be in more legal trouble, the Stormy Daniels hush money case is back in the headlines. I’m feeling like a lazy lima bean, so I’ll quote TPM’s David Kurtz:

“Donald Trump’s hush money scheme to silence porn actress Stormy Daniels is going to a New York grand jury:

  • Former National Enquirer publisher David Pecker was seen with his lawyer entering the building where the grand jury is sitting.
  • Other expected witnesses who have yet to testify include former National Enquirer editor Dylan Howard and Trump Org employees Jeffrey McConney and Deborah Tarasoff, the NYT reported.

The case is being brought by Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg, who famously stopped the probe soon after taking office last year.”

This is a juicy story. Remember: two prosecutors resigned when Bragg bagged the case. Convening a grand jury is a big fucking deal. Stay tuned.

And now for the meat of the post: five songs with hush in the title. I’ll shut up and play some music now.

Finally, Big Joe Turner:

I would be remiss in not posting a song about greed. The last word goes to 10cc:
