Stormy Daniels' attorney accuses Trump's team of making up facts

Stormy Daniels' attorney accuses Trump's team of making up facts

The bombshell revelations, which couldn't immediately be verified, caught companies and the President's team off guard.

Trump has denied the affair took place, and also recently claimed he had no knowledge of the $130,000 hush money payment made to Daniels by his lawyer Michael Cohen.

Avenatti speculated without proof that the money may have been used to replenish Cohen's account.

CNN later reported that special counsel Robert Mueller questioned Viktor Vekselberg, the Russian reportedly behind the payments, about the sums his company's US affiliate paid to Cohen.

An attorney for Cohen, Steve Ryan, told Atlantic reporter Natasha Bertrand that he wouldn't discuss Avenatti's claim.

Columbus Nova is an US investment arm of Renova Group, a conglomerate controlled by Vekselberg.

Steyn added that the whole Stormy Daniels circus is pointless since the American people elected Trump because of the issues he raised during the campaign, not his personal life or moral standing. Transactions totalling at least $4.4-million flowed through Essential Consultants starting shortly before Trump was elected president and continuing to this January, the records show.

The account belonged to Essential Solutions, a Delaware LLC that was established by Mr Cohen and has been previously identified as the source of the hush payment to Ms Clifford. He later clarified to say Trump knew about the payment, but did not know what it was for.

Colbert noted the allegations made by Daniels that her affair with Trump happened just four months after Melania Trump had given birth to their son Barron. "They did no legal or lobbying work for us, and the contract ended in December 2017", the company said in a statement.

Around that time, the Justice Department sued to block the merger. Representatives for the company couldn't immediately be reached for comment.

Cohen then switched to his "burner phone" and jumped between conversations with a host of figures caught up in the always evolving scandals surrounding Trump's presidency, including Martin Short as Trump's eccentric ex-doctor Harold Bornstein.

Michael Cohen, one of President Trump's lawyers, leaves federal court in NY on April 26. Both Vekselberg and Renova were hit last month by USA sanctions for suspected meddling in the 2016 US election and other alleged "malign activity".
