Trump lawyer says he paid $130,000 to porn star linked to president

By Ethan Miller

President Donald Trump's personal lawyer told the New York Times Tuesday he paid $130,000 of his own money to a porn star who once said she had an affair with Trump.

The long-time Trump attorney, Michael Cohen, said he was not reimbursed for the payment to the actress, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford and who goes by the stage name of Stormy Daniels, the Times reported.

Cohen told the newspaper the payment was legal but declined to give details such as why he made it or if Trump was aware of the payment at the time.

"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," Cohen said, according to the Times.

"The payment to Ms Clifford was lawful, and was not a campaign contribution or a campaign expenditure by anyone."

U.S. media reports have said the payment was made one month before the November 2016 election to keep the liaison quiet.

Trump was a private citizen when the 2006 sexual encounter with Clifford allegedly took place.

He was married at the time and his wife Melania had given birth to their son less than four months earlier.

The payment was first reported last month by the Wall Street Journal. Cohen's statement to the Times marked the first time he acknowledged a role in what he termed a "private transaction."

Trump, through his lawyers, and Clifford, 38, have both denied anything ever went on between them.

But last month the celebrity magazine In Touch published a 2011 interview with Clifford in which she expounds at length and in detail on their relationship and what she described as their "textbook generic" sex.

In that interview, Clifford said she met Trump at a celebrity golf tournament in 2006 and had a sexual encounter with him then.

She said she spoke with Trump on the phone or saw him in person for about a year.

The In Touch interview, which had not been published before, was conducted before Clifford's alleged signing of a secrecy agreement in October 2016.

Clifford has been taking advantage of her new-found notoriety.

She appeared at the Trophy Club strip club in South Carolina last month as part of a "Make America Horny Again" tour that will also reportedly take her to several other states over the next few months.

In a recent appearance on the late night TV talk show "Jimmy Kimmel Live" -- right after Trump delivered his State of the Union address -- Clifford repeatedly deflected questions about the alleged affair and whether she had signed a non-disclosure agreement.

"You can't say whether you have a non-disclosure agreement. But if you didn’t have a non-disclosure agreement, you most certainly could say, 'I don’t have a non-disclosure agreement.' Yes?" Kimmel asked.

"You're so smart, Jimmy," Clifford answered.

Later in the interview, Kimmel asked her, "Have you ever made love to someone whose name rhymes with Lonald Lump?"

"I'll call you whatever you want me to call you, baby," Clifford responded.

Trump, do not like, and the manner this was dealt with only goes to back up what I already thought about him... but this idea that leaders are perfect people that have never done something wrong is ridiculous.

Smoked pot when you were young, broke the speed limit once, got it on with someone you shouldn't have etc etc gee... welcome to the human race.

The more pertinent issue in this case is the poor business record, failure to pay people and companies while running on the idea "he's a business guy".

Also pretty bizarre that he got the evangelical vote.. but Im not sure we are living in a universe where anything much makes sense... there are actual people that think the earth is flat...

"The payment to Ms. Clifford was lawful, and was not a campaign contribution or a campaign expenditure by anyone."

It is painfully obvious that the payment was to support Trump's bid for presidency. Maybe it falls in the cracks of legalese to be a campaign contribution, but it is a form of publicity for Trump's presidency, preventing negative publicity by paying a porn star to stay quiet.

As she reported before the hush money was paid, she worried, while they were having sex, that he would try to pay her. Nope, it was consensual sex.

It would be great if the lies coming from Trump's circle were at least somewhat plausible. They are really just insulting everyone's intelligence with this nonsense now.

Any personal lawyer who pays $130,000 on belf of a married political client to a porn star a month before an election has made a de facto admission of triangle amoureux. There is a difference between illegality and simply being an uncouth brute, though. The question is where this stands.

Cohen states he was simply aiding a client/friend in trouble (though it's not like Trump lacks for hush cash - witness Trump University. This was relative pennies). Clearly, the gambit was to guise the cash's origin.

But that didn't work out. (Amazing how otherwise seemingly intelligent people think secrets can be kept in Washington.) So was it illegal?

Politico quotes a GOP lawyer who referred to a similar case with John Edwards:

The money spent for Edwards in 2004 or for Trump in 2016 is not covered by the election law,” Baran said. “As the jury concluded in the Edwards case, money spent for a candidate is not necessarily money spent for a campaign and, therefore, is not a regulated contribution or expenditure. Both times the purpose of the expense was highly personal, to say the least, and not campaign related in the legal sense.

Perhaps the lawyer is accurate, at least in the legal sense. On the other hand, Edwards remains a pariah to the Democratic Party, whereas Trump is their leader.

Trump's certainly facing a busy spring.

A Stormy in a White House teacup. Wonder what the leafs would really reveal. Certainly the FLOTUS didn't accept and was certainly upset with her POTUS and stayed in a hotel for a few days, went to his SOTU at congress alone and refused his hand on a Florida trip but not so much as it was revealed when Trump bought her their diamond engagement ring in 2005, Trump claimed he got a discount of $1 million off the $1.5 million price but the jeweler denied that.

Ouch, that cuts any man deep. I also feel a 'textbook generic' set of denials coming from Planet Trump in the near future; "She's lying", "She's not my type", followed eventually by, "It was yuuuge!"

If these reports are true that a “liaison” took place, then Ms.Clifford has sold herself short. Any self-respecting woman wouldnt go near the disgusting, bald and obese old man - for ANY price!

An affair doesn't really interest me that much, I'm sure most politicians do it at some point and sexual activity is nothing to be ashamed of. Not sure why his trophy wife bothers to stay with him though, reflects incredibly poorly on her..

His collusion with Russia however, that's unforgivable

it's a bit more complicated than what this excerpt says. edwards faced 6 charges, of which only one was aquitted while the jurors deadlocked on the remaining 5 charges. so it's not exactly clear whether what cohen did was legal or not. but definitely if charges are brought up, even if trump is acquitted, will hurt republicans in the midterm elections. they can kiss the women vote goodbye.

So, Donald Trump had consensual sex with a woman more than 10 years ago when was a registered democrat. The SJWs should be applauding him.

Besides, when did the radical alt-left MSM start caring about sexual behavior? They have more than their fair share of perverts to comment about. . . .

Nessie,

If people don't care about all the contractors Trump stiffed, they're not gonna care that he stiffed a lawyer.

He clearly "stiffed" her more than once and in more than one way. Nothing will come of this - a father on his third wife nursing a four-month old son who boinks a porn star is apparently more righteous than a faithful father who happens to be of the wrong color and political affiliation. Just further evidence is all. Plus the potential legal issues. I mean, only $130,000 - imagine how much she's demanded and is likely receiving now (this time probably directly from Trump) to further her silence. She might well ed up better compensated than Marla.

A few problems with this story:

1.) This rumor has been circulating since 2011.

2.) In December, Stephanie Clifford declined to publically denounce President Trump when the DNC trotted out those women to do a series of televised and print interviews. In a letter to Cohen, she said her involvement with then-private citizen Donald Trump was "limited to a few public appearances and nothing more."

3.) She already denied a Jan. 12 article published in The Wall Street Journal that she had a sexual relationship with President Trump, saying: “If indeed I did have a relationship Donald Trump, trust me, you wouldn’t be reading about it in the news, you would be reading about it in my book."

4.) The aforementioned Cohen revealing the details to none other than the Very Fake News NYT is the biggest red flag.

Cohen. . .declined to give details such as why he made it or if Trump was aware of the payment at the time. -- article

There is the hook to this story. Maybe the hush money was paid because the lawyer had the affair, not President Trump. Maybe she was blackmailing Cohen by saying she would blame President Trump unless he paid her.

This is just another kitten-chasing-a-laser-light type of story. . . .

-14 ( +3 / -17 )

So, Donald Trump had consensual sex with a woman more than 10 years ago no he had an affair with a pornstar while his wife was at home looking after his newborn son, he then paid hush money to keep her quiet before the election. there fixed it for you.

This is just another kitten-chasing-a-laser-light type of story. . . . then why the hush money before the election, if Trump thought his morals would pass with the voting public there would be no need for the payoff.

So Cohen is lying because he admitted the payment to a paper that you don't like? If he admitted it to FOX would it be the truth?

After carefully reading the statement, it looks like this is Cohen's problem. No where did he say the payment was made on behalf of anyone but himself.

Oh well that's that then I suppose. Case closed. We're lucky you came here to Sherlock the s#*t out of this for us Tex.

Prostitution is illegal in most of the USA, BTW. I bet the lawyer pointed that out, but the porn star already knows it too.

I've never understood that directly paying for sex is illegal, but getting married and "paying" with 50% of everything you own via divorce makes it legal somehow? So it appears the amount paid is what makes the difference for how legal it is to pay for sex?

At least in the USA.

How nasty losers’ camp is trying to hurt Donald Trump after Russian gate is nowhere to go now. These peoples will try to discredit President Trump whatever they have a chance, even Trump has passed gas at his President Office table.

I was wondering how many American men won’t take advantage with a married woman or porn star who flirts with him when they were alone in the room.

The moral decency of the majority of American men and women is falling onto the ground in the 20th century and there's no redemption in American society in the 21st century. Some women participate in "Me Too" campaign are fake and they have marked on their moral decency.

Former Canadian PM Kim Campbell has tweeted yesterday about some women demeaning themselves by wearing sleeveless dresses and sitting with suited men. She didn't include some women proudly wearing very low cut top and revealing almost half of chest on TV Show. Sometime you have to watch the male co-host is looking down at his female co-host very low cut top chest on TV show. He laid his eyes on female co-host chest frequently. Whose fault it was?

Where's decency in entertainment industry?

Some peoples in show business and journalists are thinking they are better than other peoples but they are not. Let these peoples to make candidate for public office and then their dirty secret will pop up in everywhere, the News Paper and on the Internet. They are good people until their dirty secret was revealed and published by someone who knows their dirty secret.

Oprah Winfrey was proving to be she was wised and intelligent women by rejecting rumor about the 2020 Presidential Election. She wants to keep her private life for herself.

Do you remember most respectable TV Show host David Letterman affair with one of his staff and blackmail by his former writer?

That story was published because it was involved blackmail. Otherwise, David Letterman affair with young female staffer will not become publicity.

The White House can be very sticky place. Do you remember JFK affair with many women when he was in White House? How about Bill Clinton’s cigar in the office?

They know, Donald Trump slept with former porn star won’t be ousted President from White House. The only thing they want is hurting image and reputation of Donald Trump, marriage and his private life. All they want is to hurt Donald Trump. Donald Trump is not perfect person because he was one of them.

Sorry, it’s just a bunch of seedless grapes once again. To be honest, I would never cheat on my wife, but having said that, I’m not a hypocrite, I cannot say this enough. I don’t care what a person does in their private lives, doesn’t concern me and if you are a politician as long as it doesn’t affec your ability to work, who am I to judge?

The party that used to be known as being the fiscally conservative party of morals now has stopped caring about being fiscally conservative, and about morals.

No, not really. Conservatives are human just like everyone else, but overall, when it comes to family and the sanctity of marriage and God, generally speaking most are strong in their belief and outlook on marriage, don’t know a lot of hippy free loving conservatives and I have been in San Francisco many, many times.

So what is their appeal now?

The same as before, by the way, the President was for over 50 years until recently a Democrat, 10 years ago, he was a Democrat. He was giving in to his liberal tendencies back then. Now if that happened now, I wouldn’t say anything, but 10 years ago?

Ahhh, the short/selective memories of conservatives. Clinton's affair wasn't harming the country until Kenneth Starr's witch hunt went off the rails of its original purpose and started smearing the dusky elected president over alleged purjury.

Perjury? Anyway, he was a sitting President, so yes, it was a huge distraction and definitely hurting the country. If Trump did the same thing now in the WH I would be equally outraged as I was back then.

That story line, sans the hyperbole, sounds warily familiar. A special counsel starts at Point A and ends up at Point B, which leads to impeachment.

Hilariously, Trump's lawyer talking about this agreement may have invalidated it, allowing Ms. Clifford to talk freely about the incident.

I personally have no problem with Presidents having affairs with porn stars, but the logical consequence that must follow from that is that the people who have spent their lives preaching that God demands sex only take place within the bounds of marriage and that this is the thing God cares about most cannot turn around and proclaim that President represents their God. And yet I know people who nearly daily proclaim Trump to be the anointed of God sent to restore the Christian faith.

And in other news, (irrelevant person) did (irrelevant things) during (irrelevant time in the past).

@bass Huh? Again, the man can have nightly sex parades, as long as he’s not bringing it to the WH, I don’t care about his private life...morals mean nothing to trumplets we all know that..

I'm sure he's gonna come out with some lie to deny this, but then contradict what he just said. like ;

"I was the best man SHE has ever met!"

"It was yuuuge"!

Has nothing to do with it. Conservatives also believe whatever you do in your private life is your own business.

Only when those lives are conservative, all others are fair game! Child abuse, domestic violence, are they too part of the private lives?

Unlike, Bill Clinton who in his presidency couldn't admit to having sex, at least Trump knows what sex is!

The damage from this storm will no doubt leave some people adrift and rudderless.

Expect serious structural faults.

Have a camera recording the fun and its no longer illegal to pay for sex. The mind ditch boggle, eh. yes prostitution is illegal in the US, but a sexual act can be filmed and distributed for sale and that legal as its pornography. Also of note a 17,18,19yr yrs old woman/man can star in one of these sexual acts with multiple partners male or female can do many obscene things in these scenes, legally!, but at the end of a hard day of filming this teenage woman/man cannot relax and have a beer, legally!! America has seriously got it priority all fudged up!

Nice "gift".........I wonder how the figure was determined. I guess she now has to pay back taxes on the hush money.

Modern day "liberals" are so sexually repressed, it's not healthy. I suggest they take some time off from obsessing about Trump and learn to enjoy life and celebrate tolerance.

So this guy has sex with a porn star just 4 MONTHS after the birth of his son, and the Reps say 'who cares it was a decade ago'...

By electing this odious man, you have forfeited your right to question the morals and values of others -

So much for conservatives screaming about morals. Classy.

In 1996, I had morals, then I learned about sex from the democrats.

I still have morals, but as I get older, what a known womanizer does really doesn't surprise me.

3rd trophy wife wasn't exactly a well-hidden secret. I assumed each after the 1st began with an affair. OTOH, living in a loveless marriage for 40 yrs, now that would suck completely.

As ever, it is not the act that poses the risk but the denials.

Get a life. At least the guy has a libido. As long as he doesn't run the country into the ground, I don't care if he invites a mistress over to the WH every night. That's his personal business.

 if charges are brought up, even if trump is acquitted, will hurt republicans in the midterm elections. they can kiss the women vote goodbye.
