Michael Cohen, Trump’s lawyer, says he paid Stormy Daniels $130,000 out of own pocket
The latest twist in the tangled tale of what happened between President Trump and an adult film star more than a decade ago has taken a new turn Tuesday, with Trump’s longtime personal lawyer claiming that he paid the porn star $130,000 out of his own pocket.
Michael Cohen, the lawyer who worked for Trump for more than a decade, said in a statement obtained by Fox News that the 2016 transaction with Stormy Daniels was lawful and not a campaign contribution or campaign expenditure “by anyone.”
“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,” the statement read.
To start with, what ever happened to lawyer client confidentially??
I find it very difficult to believe that Cohen paid a porn star 130 G’s out of his pocket and Trump didn’t know anything about it. The guy must have barrel of $oldi laying around to come up with that kind of ging-a-ling as a silent-favor.
As the story goes; if we can even believe anything we read these days; Trump met Stephanie Clifford, who goes by the name Stormy Daniels in films, at a golf event in 2006 — a year after Trump’s marriage to his wife, Melania. According to The Wall Street Journal’s report, Clifford began talking with ABC News in the fall of 2016 for a story involving an alleged relationship with Trump, but reached a $130,000 deal a month before the election, which prevented her from going public.
Let us assume that this is correct. SOOOO, Trump cheated on his wife and his ambulance chaser, unbeknownst to Trump, paid off some porn star 130’s G’s to hush her up. Big %$#&^* deal. Anyone that thinks PDT is a pure as a new born babe, I still have plenty of swamp land at bargain basement prices available.
Let’s face it folks. It is HARD enough for the average man with a 50$ bill in his pocket to behave himself. Just imagine having 10 billion and surrounded by every bimbo on the planet wanting to get in their pants, either so they can say they did, for the thrill of it, or the most logical reason, for the $olsi pay off down the road.
The media has spent millions trying to pin some dirt on PDT to discredit him. They haven’t made anything stick YET. Cheating on ones wife, beating a women, molesting them or raping them are all completely different animals.
I am NOT saying that any one of the above are acceptable. I am saying, cheating on ones mate, either man or women is rampant, but especially in celebs-ville where a marriage last about 5 days, cheating is an every day/minute/second occurrence.
These are the presidents that were well-known for not being able to control the bulge in their Levis’ :
BIG FROG 104
1. Thomas Jefferson (1801-1809)
Thomas Jefferson was a Virginia nobleman. Apparently he was against slavery despite having slaves of his own on his plantation at Monticello. Sally Hemings is the name of a slave who Jefferson met in Paris. She was light skinned and could pass as a tanned white person. Not only was Jefferson engaging in an affair with Hemings but as a result of that affair Jefferson fathered five of her children. Upon Jefferson’s death, his will stated that Hemings and her children were to be freed.
2. Warren Harding (1921-1923)
Warren Harding was only President for three years. His term was cut short by death. Official records claim that harding died of a heart attack. Some people believe however, Warren Harding’s wife poisoned him. Why would sweet Mrs. Harding do such a thing? Well, because Mr. Harding may not have been the most faithful husband. He allegedly had affairs with at least two women. One of the alleged mistresses was Nan Britton, who claimed to have given birth to Harding’s daughter Elizabeth Ann. The second long time affair Harding had was with a woman by the name of Carrie Fulton Phillips. When Harding received the nomination for candidacy for President from the Republican party, she threatened to come forward and reveal the affair if she was not compensated. The Republican National Committee paid her $50,000 to avoid a scandal.
3. Franklin D. Roosevelt (1933-1945)
Even with all the good FDR did, there were some skeletons in his closet. His marriage with Eleanor Roosevelt had its own problems to begin with. Everyone knows about Mrs. Roosevelt’s true desires. The true love of President Roosevelt’s life was a woman by the name of Lucy Mercer. Eleanor discovered the affair when she found love letters from Mercer to the President. After she threatened divorce, he promised never to see her again. Of course every chance he got he would see her. In fact Mercer was beside him while on his death bed. True love I guess.
4. Dwight D. Eisenhower (1953-1961)
Good old Ike! Dwight D Eisenhower had a lot on his plate during his presidency. You know things can get stressful when there is a war going on. When he was overseas checking in on the status of the war, he fell for his young and attractive personal driver Kay Summersby. Summersby really brightened Ike’s mood. She was a former model from Great Britain. She revealed the affair in a book titled, Past Forgetting: My Love Affair with Dwight D. Eisenhower. The truth always seems to be revealed in a book.
6. John F. Kennedy (1961-1963)
It’s no secret that John F. Kennedy had his fair share of extramarital encounters. JFK was the prime example of how even great leaders in the political realm can have their flaws. Kennedy most certainly did incredible things for this country including preventing a war with Russia. Who knows how many women there were but the word is, countless. He slept with White House workers, gangster’s wives (not smart), staff reporters, movie stars, and goodness knows who else. One notable entertainer JFK was involved with was Marilyn Monroe. John F. Kennedy was a great president, but not the greatest monogamist.
7. Lyndon B. Johnson (1963-1969)
I spoke to my father recently about Lyndon Johnson and he had three simple words for me, “dirty old man.” It was said that President Johnson was always hitting on women and treated them very disrespectfully. He did keep his extramarital affairs a lot more discreet than his predecessor, JFK, however it was known by many. One of his many partners was a woman named Madeline Brown. In 1950 Brown became pregnant with Johnson’s son Steven. He was at least nice enough to take care of her and the child before and after his birth. The affair lasted 21 years.
8. Bill Clinton (1993-2001)
That brings us to President Bill Clinton. President Clinton went through probably the most publicized sex scandal in history. The affairs began when Clinton was Governor of Arkansas. Arkansas troopers assigned to guard then Governor Clinton recall seeing him in “delicate situations” with several different women. The most famous instance was his encounter with 21-year-old White House intern Monica Lewinsky. The worst thing to come out of this for Clinton was the dress. He went on record and declared “I did not have sexual relations with that woman.” That blue dress proved otherwise. Despite his infidelity, his wife Hillary Clinton stayed loyal to him.
Some of them – I say some of them, were great leaders – some of them, I say some of them, were scumbags. Be that as it may; have an extra-marital affair does not constitute someone being a serial killer.
As bad of a shape as the USA is in these days, in so many different areas, the main focus on PDT should be, not if he pissed in his pant in the 2nd grade, it should be that he does the job he was elected for and comes across with the promises he made during his campaign. So far, depending on who you talk to, has a respectful batting average.
IFFFF- IFFFF; somewhere down the road, it is proven that he did molest anyone, that should be dealt with when he is out of office. The USA can not stand another political bombshell.
After-all; if PDT was ever impeached; Omarosa wouldn’t be-able to sleep at night, knowing the Mike Pence would be taking God’s advice on how to run the government.
Mike Pence ‘thinks Jesus tells him to say things’, says former Trump aide Omarosa
‘You would be begging for the days of Trump back if Pence became president’
After all, we would not want the Hatchet Lady to loose any of her beauty sleep over the transition.
