Trump's Personal Lawyer Admits Paying $130000 To Stormy Daniels

This is insane. President Donald Trump's longtime lawyer, Michael Cohen, released an official statement to The New York Times on February 13 and it surprisingly revealed that he personally paid porn star Stormy Daniels (whose real name is Stephanie Clifford) $130, 000 in 2016.

"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.

Mr. Cohen has previously said that Mr. Trump has denied an affair with Ms. Clifford, whose stage name is Stormy Daniels. This statement was sent by Trump's lawyer Michael Cohen when the allegations first surfaced.

The complaint alleged that Cohen, who set up a private company to make the payment to Daniels, violated election law by making an illegal campaign contribution. The Journal reported that Cohen negotiated the payment to Daniels not long before the 2016 presidential election, which came as Trump was facing accusations of unwanted sexual contact from more than a dozen women.

Cohen said Common Cause's claims of campaign finance violations "are factually unsupported and without legal merit, and my counsel has submitted a response to the" Federal Election Commission.

Michael Cohen is shopping the book, tentatively titled 'Trump Revolution: From The Tower to The White House, Understanding Donald J. Trump, ' to multiple publishers.

Michael Cohen, personal attorney for U.S. President Donald Trump, said he was not reimbursed for the money he paid Stormy Daniels.

The payment was first reported last month by the Wall Street Journal.

The payment was allegedly made to the porn star for a nondisclosure agreement of an alleged sexual encounter with Trump.

She said she spoke with Trump on the phone or saw him in person for about a year. Although Cohen said he paid her the money, which many suspected was to keep things quiet in regards to Stormy's alleged affair with Trump, he never revealed what it was for.

Later in the interview, Kimmel asked her, "Have you ever made love to someone whose name rhymes with Lonald Lump?" On the program, Daniels said she didn't know anything about the statement.

She hinted during the interview she might not have signed the statement.
