Trump’s lawyer confirms $130k payment to porn star

President Trump’s personal lawyer said that he paid porn star Stormy Daniels $130,000 in hush money out of his own pocket claiming no one in the President’s camp was involved.

“Neither the Trump Organization nor the Trump campaign was a party to the transaction with (Stormy Daniels), and neither reimbursed me for the payment, either directly or indirectly,” attorney Michael Cohen said.

Despite the claim that he acted independently of the President, good government group Common Cause contends the payoff still violates federal election law.

The X-rated film star, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, claimed that she had sex with the President in 2006 after meeting him at a celebrity golf tournament, In Touch magazine reported.

A lawyer for Daniels negotiated the payoff a month before the 2016 election in exchange for silence .

Daniels, told In Touch weekly in an interview that “the sex was nothing crazy.”

Trump was married to First Lady Melania Trump at the time.
