Trump’s Lawyer Says He Paid Stormy Daniels Himself

Michael Cohen, President Trump’s longtime personal lawyer, told the New York Times 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.

Cohen said he was not reimbursed for the payment.

Said Cohen: “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. The payment to Ms. Clifford was lawful, and was not a campaign contribution or a campaign expenditure by anyone.”
