Trump Attorney Michael Cohen Just Claimed He Paid Porn Star $130K Out Of His Own Pocket

Donald Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen claimed on Tuesday that the $130,000 payout to adult film actress Stormy Daniels was taken from his own pockets.

According to The New York Times, Cohen also claimed that the Trump Organization did not reimburse him for the $130,000 payment to keep Stormy Daniels quiet about having an affair with Trump in 2006.

“Neither the Trump Organization nor the Trump campaign was a party to the transaction with [Stephanie] Clifford [Daniels’ legal name], and neither reimbursed me for the payment, either directly or indirectly,” Cohen told the Times in a statement. “The payment to Ms. Clifford was lawful, and was not a campaign contribution or a campaign expenditure by anyone.”

Cohen refused to answer any further questions from the Times, including whether Trump knew about the payment to the adult actress or what it was for.

This is also the first time Cohen confirmed the payment was actually made, according to the Times. Cohen had denied the affair between Daniels and Trump last month when the story first surfaced.
