Stormy Daniels

Postby Anaxagoras » Wed Feb 14, 2018 6:35 am

So Trump's lawyer Michael Cohen paid off Stormy Daniels with his own money. I wish my lawyer was so good to me.

Trump's lawyer paid $130,000 of own money to porn star

Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump's personal lawyer said Tuesday that he paid $130,000 of his own money to a porn star who allegedly had a sexual encounter with the President before his time in office.
"In a private transaction in 2016, I used my own personal funds to facilitate a payment of $130,000 to Ms. Stephanie Clifford," Michael Cohen said in a statement. "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."
Just weeks before the 2016 election, Cohen reportedly created a private LLC to pay Clifford, otherwise known as Stormy Daniels, following an alleged July 2006 encounter with Trump, The Wall Street Journal reported in January.
The New York Times first reported that Cohen had said he made the payment himself.
Following initial reports last month that Cohen had made the payment, he said in a statement that Trump "vehemently denies" any encounter between the two.


So I guess his official explanation is that there was never "any encounter" but then why the payment? Was she blackmailing Trump with false accusations? If so, he paid off an extortionist.

In what permutation of the admitted facts is this not some sort of scandal?
Either they ("they"?) paid hush money to an extortionist or Trump had an affair with a porn star.
When asked why he made the payment, Cohen told CNN: "Just because something isn't true doesn't mean that it can't cause you harm or damage. I will always protect Mr. Trump."

It "isn't true" but it could have caused "harm or damage" to Mr. Trump so he paid her with his own money to protect Mr. Trump without any expectation of direct or indirect reimbursement. Got it?

Well he wouldn't want Trump's sterling reputation to get tarnished.

Maybe, just maybe, Cohen was buying something other than (or in addition to) silence about Trump.

About that story that the National Enquirer buried:

'New Yorker' says handwritten note by former Playmate details affair with Trump

A former Playmate, who says she has been emboldened by the #MeToo movement and declining health, has confirmed to The New Yorker that she authored an eight-page, hand-written document about her alleged affair with Donald Trump that the magazine said was quietly buried by the National Enquirer after buying exclusive rights to it.

The deal, which netted Karen McDougal $82,500, has prevented her from discussing the alleged relationship with Trump.

McDougal, who was judged runner-up for "Playmate of the '90s," allegedly met Trump in 2006 at the Playboy mansion after Trump had been married to Slovenian model Melania Knauss for less than two years.

She spoke to writer Ronan Farrow, who has written recently about sexual abuse in Hollywood, but was circumspect about details regarding Trump. She acknowledged, however, that she wrote the account of the alleged affair, which Farrow said he obtained from John Crawford, a friend of McDougal's.

The Wall Street Journal, four days before the 2016 presidential election, reported that American Media Inc., the publisher of the National Enquirer, had paid $150,000 for exclusive rights to McDougal’s story, which it never ran. Buying the rights to a story in order to bury it is a practice that many in the tabloid industry call “catch and kill.”

David Pecker, CEO and chairman of A.M.I., has described Trump as a personal friend.

McDougal, choosing her words carefully, said the emergence of the #MeToo movement and health problems, which she blames on breast implant removal last year, has prompted her to be more conflicted about the moral compromises of silence, The New Yorker says.
