President Trump's longtime personal lawyer Michael D. Cohen admitted on Tuesday that he had paid $130,000 out of his own personal funds to Stephanie Clifford, aka porn star Stormy Daniels.
“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.”
Cohen's statement about this "private transaction" was the first time Cohen acknowledged his role in the payment, first reported in January 2018 by The Wall Street Journal. It was made shortly after the birth of Trump's son Barron with current wife Melania.
Note that Cohen's office is right next to Donald Trump's in Trump Tower. I wonder if those die-hard evangelicals who just trashed Bill Clinton -- and Hillary, too -- will ever look in the mirror and seen their own hypocrisy.
No. Because they've convinced themselves that Trump has been sent by God and can do no wrong. Talk about a tight religious knot.
InTouch previously published a 2011 interview that they had with Stormy Daniels but didn't publish at the time about the affair. Speaking about Melania Trump, Stormy Daniels said:
"If I was his wife and I found out that my husband stuck his d--k in a hundred girls, I would be less mad about that than the fact that he went to dinner and had, like, this ongoing relationship," she said, though confirmed that he never spoke to her about sleeping with other women. Stormy recalled that after being introduced to Trump at a golf tournament in Nevada in 2005, she met up with him at dinners, parties, and his hotel room several times over the coming months to have intercourse. “I wanna see you again, when can I see you again?” he allegedly pleaded.
