On Tuesday, Donald Trump‘s long-time personal attorney, Michael D. Cohen made a stunning admission. He claims that it was he who paid adult film actress Stormy Daniels, whose legal name is Stephanie Clifford, $130,000 in 2016 during Trump’s presidential campaign.
The New York Times reported that Trump’s lawyer of over decade claims to have paid the porn star without any reimbursement or contribution from Trump or the Trump campaign. However, when asked, the attorney failed to provide reporters with any details regarding the reason behind his generous gift to a porn actress with whom his client allegedly had a year-long sexual relationship.
“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,” Mr. Cohen said in a statement to The New York Times. “The payment to Ms. Clifford was lawful, and was not a campaign contribution or a campaign expenditure by anyone.”
On Tuesday evening, poor Rachel Maddow drew the unfortunate duty of breaking the story on MSNBC.
It’s hard to say what’s more disgusting, the idea that Trump’s attorney paid off a porn actress to cover for his client or that Cohen honestly believes that most people (except for Fox News fans) are stupid enough to swallow his ridiculous, half-baked, bullshit alibi.
Meanwhile, in a quiet office somewhere in Washington, Special Counsel Robert Mueller was probably sitting at his desk reading reports. Maybe he took a look at his phone, read this news alert and quietly chuckled before making another note in his daily tablet. And one can imagine that such a daily journal would be nearly full by now.
