I don't know why my attorney paid Stormy Daniels $130K

First, he stated that he had no knowledge of the $130,000 hush payment to Daniels, which his personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, oddly claimed to have personally paid from his home equity line.

He finally speaks! Since In Touch first dropped Stormy Daniel's explosive, 2011 tell-all interview about her affair with President Donald Trump, we've been waiting patiently for the president - who doesn't tend to keep his mouth shut about, well, anything - to sound off on the affair.

When he was then asked if he knew about the payments to Daniels shortly before the 2016 USA presidential election, Trump said: "No".

This claim is one that Daniels' attorney, Michael Avenatti, plans to prove is untrue.

"Where have the two legal geniuses of our time, Michael Cohen and David Schwartz, gone?" "As history teaches us, it is one thing to deceive the press and quite another to do so under oath".




While Trump has denied the allegations made by the adult film star, she was insisted the pair had an affair-sharing details of her story in a widely watched 60 Minutes interview the ratings of which topped those of the president's own appearance. She claims the agreement is null and void because Mr. Trump never signed it.

Daniels has turned her 15 minutes of fame into a months-long, made-for-TV saga, unleashing her lawyer Michael Avenatti to hint about physical evidence and predict a courtroom victory for his client.

Her nondisclosure agreement subjects her to fines of $1 million for each infraction an arbitrator rules was prohibited.

Avenatti nearly immediately reacted with a couple of tweets.

On Monday, Trump's lawyers sought to get that lawsuit out of federal court and into private arbitration. Trump married his current wife, Melania, in 2005, and their son Barron was born in 2006.
