Trump breaks silence on payoff to porn star – Times of India

In his first public comments about Stormy Daniels, US President Donald Trump said he didn’t know about the $130,000 payment his personal attorney had made to the porn actress who alleges she had an affair with him.

He also said he didn’t know why his longtime lawyer, Michael Cohen, had made the payment and didn’t know where Cohen had gotten the money. “You’ll have to ask Michael Cohen,” he said on Thursday.

Until now, Trump had avoided questions on Daniels, though the White House has consistently said Trump denies a relationship. Still, he has been dogged by the focus on the adult-film actress, who says she had a sexual encounter with the president in 2006 and was paid to keep quiet about it as part of a nondisclosure agreement she signed days before the 2016 presidential election. Daniels is now seeking to invalidate that agreement.

Daniel’s attorney said: “Our case just got that much better. And we very much look forward to testing the truthfulness of Trump’s feigned lack of knowledge.”
