Trump claims no knowledge of payment to porn star Stormy Daniels

Trump claims no knowledge of payment to porn star Stormy Daniels

During a press briefing aboard Air Force One today, April 5, he told reporters that he didn't know about the "hush agreement" or where the money (paid for by his personal lawyer Michael Cohen) came from.

President Donald Trump has said he did not know about the 130,000 USA dollar payment his personal lawyer made to adult film actress Stormy Daniels, who alleges she and the president had an affair.

Daniels has said in recent months that Trump invited her to his hotel room at a celebrity golf tournament she attended, and that the two carried on an affair for months.

Do you know where the money came from? a reporter asked.

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

Stormy Daniels, an adult film star and director whose real name is Stephanie Clifford is interviewed by Anderson Cooper of CBS News' 60 Minutes program in early March 2018, in a still image from video provided March 25, 2018.

Forecast: The Snow's Ending, But It Will Still Be Chilly
One day after a mild Easter Sunday , yet another winter storm rolled into New York City overnight and into this morning. Scattered snow showers were still moving out of the region this morning, especially in the eastern part of the state.

In answering questions from reporters on Air Force One Thursday, Trump broke 11 days of silence from the president since Daniels went public with claims of an extramarital affair with the real estate mogul in a 60 Minutes interview.

"Where have the two legal geniuses of our time, Michael Cohen and David Schwartz, gone?" Avenatti tweeted on Thursday morning.

"We very much look forward to testing the truthfulness of Mr. Trump's feigned lack of knowledge concerning the $130k payment as stated on Air Force One", Avenatti said.

Daniels argues the non-disclosure agreement is legally invalid because it was only signed by her and Cohen, not by Trump.

She is now suing Mr. Trump to abrogate a nondisclosure agreement that was supposed to prevent her from discussing her relationship. Trump married his current wife, Melania, in 2005, and their son Barron was born in 2006.
