LOL Michael Cohen - Trumps Longtime Lawyer Says He Paid Stormy Daniels Out of His Own Pocket



Michael D. Cohen, President Trump’s longtime personal lawyer, said on Tuesday that he had paid $130,000 out of his own pocket to a pornographic-film actress who had once claimed to have had an affair with Mr. Trump.

In the most detailed explanation of the 2016 payment made to the actress, Stephanie Clifford, Mr. Cohen, who worked as a counsel to the Trump Organization for more than a decade, said he was not reimbursed for the payment.

“Neither the Trump Organization nor the Trump campaign was a party to the transaction with Ms. Clifford, and neither reimbursed me for the payment, either directly or indirectly,” Mr. Cohen said in a statement to The New York Times. “The payment to Ms. Clifford was lawful, and was not a campaign contribution or a campaign expenditure by anyone.”

Mr. Cohen’s statement about what he called “a private transaction” was the first time that he had acknowledged a role in the payment, which was first reported in January by The Wall Street Journal.

3. He is just inviting an inquiry into his personal finances

If you believe this then you believe Trumps lawyers are composing his Tweets for him.

Oh wait, they can't even come up with an original lie...

12. We don't always WANT one of our congressmen pushing

in front of a camera to make a big public show of our role in Trump's troubles. This sleazy business is a perfect example of when we want to stand back and let them have the cameras all to themselves. In fact, almost all their scummy activities are.

16. Obama's lawyer pays off porn star...NOT campaign. Obama claims all OK now! Can you imagine?

Apparently in RW fucked up world it is right as rain again.

Every day now it is multiple insults to intelligence and morality and truth.

When it all comes crashing down it will be epic.
