Trumps Longtime Lawyer Says He Paid Stormy Daniels Out of His Own Pocket [View all]

Source: New York Times

Michael D. Cohen, President Trumps longtime personal lawyer, said on Tuesday that he 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.

He declined to answer several follow-up questions, including whether Mr. Trump had been aware that he made the payment, what the motivation was or whether he had made similar payments to other people over the years.
