It’s looking more and more like the cover-up, not the crime will again be what takes out another president. It looks like by saying he (Cohen) paid out of his own pocket to cover-up for mango Mussolini he also admitted that there was an amount paid and who it was paid too.
In a statement released Tuesday night
, Michael Cohen said he paid Stephanie Clifford, also known as Stormy Daniels, in 2016, and claimed that the exchange was “lawful” and “not a campaign contribution expenditure by anyone.”
Following the reports of Cohen’s statement on Tuesday, as well as a story published by The Daily Beast
this week regarding a book proposal by Cohen, Clifford’s manager, Gina Rodriguez, told the Associated Press that Clifford now believes he violated the non-disclosure agreement.
Cohen reportedly set up a private LLC shortly before the 2016 presidential election to pay Clifford, following an alleged July 2006 sexual encounter with Trump, The Wall Street Journal reported in January
Following initial reports
last month that Cohen had made the payment, the lawyer said in a statement that Trump “vehemently denies” any encounter between the two.
“Just because something isn’t true doesn’t mean that it can’t cause you harm or damage,” Cohen’s statement said. “I will always protect Mr. Trump.”
