Trump's lawyer admits paying $130K to Stormy Daniels

The payment reportedly was part of a deal, reached between Cohen and Clifford's lawyers, that prevented her from discussing a sexual relationship with Trump.

The FEC was asked by Common Cause, a government watchdog, to investigate the source of the $130,000 payment.

At the end of January, Ms Clifford said in a statement the alleged affair never occurred.

Revealing new details about the 2016 payment to the actress, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, Cohen, who worked as a counsel to the Trump Organization for more than a decade, said he wasn't reimbursed.

"The payment to Clifford was lawful, and was not a campaign contribution or a campaign expenditure by anyone", he added.

Pritchard, Brown lead OR to 84-57 win over Washington St
OR led 48-34 at halftime after shooting 80 percent (20-for-25) from the field, including 57.1 percent (4-for-7) on three-pointers. OR opened the game with possession but no points. "That was a heck of a weekend by Ruthy", coach Kelly Graves said.

Trump allegedly hooked up with the adult star at the Edgewood Tahoe golf tournament a year after he married Melania. Ms. Clifford had told her story to the magazine In Touch in 2011, as well as the gossip website TheDirty.com.

Jacob Weisberg, chairman and editor in chief of the Slate Group, said she told him the same things when they spoke on the phone and through text messages over three months in 2016. For example, if it took Cohen a few hundred dollars to set up an entity to pay Daniels, and to wire someone else's $130,000 to her, then he would have been using his own personal funds to faciltate that payment. But I just thought it worth pointing out that Cohen doesn't even claim that he paid the $130,000 out of his own pocket, which is what the press seems to be reporting.

Donald Trump's least presidential moments so far. During her interview with Kimmel, she effectively confirmed the existence of a non-disclosure agreement regarding her relationship with Trump.

The proposal also states that Cohen's book will delve into the "complexities and nuances of the Trump family" and that Trump pretends to be insane to create "an incredibly effective smoke machine" that has fooled people formerly close to him, including ousted chief strategist Steve Bannon.

Gina Rodriguez, a publicist for Clifford, said she cancelled Clifford's scheduled appearance on "The View" after a previous guest questioned whether she should be making public appearances.
