I gave $130000 to porn star Stormy Daniels, says Trump lawyer

I gave $130000 to porn star Stormy Daniels, says Trump lawyer

In a statement, Cohen wrote that he had paid the money out from his own account and that it did not constitute a campaign expenditure or contribution.

Michael Cohen, the long-time attorney for President Donald Trump, said he personally made a payment of $130,000 to porn star Stormy Daniels. One is Bannon's assessment of the infamous June 2016 meeting at Trump Tower involving Donald Trump Jr., son-in-law Jared Kushner, former campaign manager Paul Manafort and a Kremlin-connected Russian lawyer.

In January, the organization Common Cause filed complaints with the Federal Election Commission and the Justice Department, alleging that the reported payment to Clifford constituted a campaign finance violation.

Campaign contribution limits in effect during the 2016 election capped direct donations to candidates at $2,700 for a primary or general election.

"Just because something isn't true doesn't mean that it can't cause you harm or damage".

He added in the statement he will always support Trump.

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment late Tuesday night.

The reports re-emerged in January when the Wall Street Journal reported that she was paid to sign a non-disclosure agreement in the run up to the 2016 election, which prevented her from discussing the alleged liaison.

The encounter allegedly took place months after Trump marriage to wife Melania. Daniels was working at a booth promoting the adult-film company Wicked Pictures.

In Touch magazine later published a 2011 interview with Clifford in which she described, in detail, both an affair and years of contact with Trump.

Donald Trump's least presidential moments so far.

She also made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel's show after Trump's state of the union address last month.

She appeared at the Trophy Club strip club in SC 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.

But in a TV interview the same day, she appeared to disown the statement, saying she did not know where it came from and the signature did not look like hers.
