Trump claims no knowledge of payment to porn star Stormy Daniels

Trump claims no knowledge of payment to porn star Stormy Daniels

Mr Cohen has admitted to making the payment privately, but has denied that Mr Trump was a party to the transaction.

Asked why Cohen made the payment if there was no truth to the woman's allegations, Mr. Trump said reporters would "have to ask Michael Cohen". Daniels also signed a non-disclosure agreement. "You'll have to ask Michael", Trump said. Michael is my attorney.

Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, told CBS television's 60 Minutes program that she was not attracted to Trump, who was 60 at the time of their affair.

"No", Trump said tersely when asked about the cash that Michael Cohen doled out to Daniels just days before the 2016 election. And ethical rules prohibit attorneys from settling a claim without the client's knowledge or using their personal funds to pay for a settlement. "As history teaches us, it is one thing to deceive the press and quite another to do so under oath". Daniels also claimed she received threats, warning her not to speak about the affair.

Ms Daniels says she had a sexual encounter with the president in 2006 and was paid as part of a non-disclosure agreement she is seeking to invalidate.

So, is Trump hanging Cohen out to dry as a strategic move, or is the president simply (and finally) giving into temptation by talking freely on the subject?
