Posted on 05/02/2018 8:52:23 PM PDT by Angels27
In a startling revelation, President Donald Trump's new lawyer said Wednesday that Trump repaid his personal attorney $130,000 in a deal made just before the 2016 election to keep porn star Stormy Daniels quiet about her tryst with the president, directly contradicting Trump's past statements about the hush money.
During an appearance on Fox News Channel's "Hannity," Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani said the money to repay Michael Cohen had been "funneled ... through the law firm and the president repaid it."
Asked if Trump knew about the arrangement, Giuliani said: "He didn't know about the specifics of it, as far as I know. But he did know about the general arrangement, that Michael would take care of things like this, like I take care of things like this for my clients. I don't burden them with every single thing that comes along. These are busy people." Trump told reporters several weeks ago that he didn't know about the payment to Daniels as part of a non-disclosure agreement she signed days before the 2016 presidential election.
Asked aboard Air Force One whether he knew about the payment, Trump said flatly: "No." Trump also said he didn't know why Cohen had made the payment or where he got the money.

The entire hope of the DNC’s 2020 win rests on a prostitute.
what’s not good? consider this from the Daily Beast, and ask yourself, if Trump wanted to be alone with bunnyboiler, why would he want other people around? And why does her bestie best friend’s account differ so much from what Anderson Springer Cooper heard?
Stormy said she met Donald Trump and then tells me about the golf tournament and how shes supposed to hang out with him later that night, and she invited me. Stormy said Donald knew exactly who she was and wanted to meet her.
Later that evening after returning to her hotel room, Evans said Daniels kept calling, asking her to come join the party. But Evans wasnt interested and made up reasons not to go...Stormy calls me four or five times, by the last two phone calls shes with Donald [Trump] and I can hear him, and hes talking through the phone to me saying, Oh come on Alana, lets have some fun! Lets have some fun! Come to the party, were waiting for you.
[Husband] Mosny also told TSG that he was not under the impression that Daniels had a romantic affair with Trump.
guess it would help to post the source link for my post, eh?
Actually he did.
Giuliani said the President didn’t know about the specifics only the general arrangement. He said Michael would take care of things that came up just like he does for his clients and that they don’t burden the clients with every thing that comes up because they are busy people.
ok then so why is everyone freakin out lol..he paid Cohen like he did every month for a job well done so what’s the problem
Clinton raped Juanita twice in one session, violently. He ripped her clothes and caused injury to her face. He was protected by state troopers making her powerless. The pop media culture LOVES HIM.
What hypocrites to even care about Trumps consensual hooker romp.
Since all of Mr. Cohen's records were seized, the President must assume details regarding the payment are known. In that light, authorizing his attorney to make this statement is simply good sense. No law has been violated and he no longer has to worry about a secret being revealed at an inopportune time.
What a scummy 3rd world hellhole liberals have created. Bill Clinton gets away with rape, Hillary with selling 20% of our Uranium and Trump is dragged into hell for doing a slut and wanting to protect his wife from the information.
Oh, and eff you Mueller.
Trump didn't rape women like Clinton did - or sexually bully them like Tom Brokaw... Or make a career out of taking advantage of young women like Weinstein... but Trump's the one they hate... and they'll try to destroy him for consensual sex with a democrat slut.
Just crazy liberals with nothing else to do!
The “other” FReeper didn’t hint at jack. That was your opinion, which is simply disingenuous.
Not sure tonight was the night to release this or that Giuliani was the right person. Everything else from tonight’s show is being buried right now due to “Trump Knew”. What a mess and this will be the lead story for days.
Dear Yahoo, nobody or almost nobody gives a rats ass Da*m whether DJT paid a hooker or not.
please give us information on how our government is working and skip the salacious(?) old rubbish
that is, if you want to develop into a genuine, respectable news channel
ZERO proof the President ever had an affair with this porn scum. His attorney paying her to shut her yap during the election does not mean it ever happened.
Yep, and I can’t stand that she’s called any kind of star or actress.
All this could mean is that she was paid not to go around making false accusations.
Wasnt Sherlock Holmes the one who said the game is afoot. Knocking the wind out of the stormy bs. Getting a tougher legal team and lining up to fight the constitutionality of a special council appointment with no criminal act in evidence. Maybe Rudy and DJT are heading for a SCOTUS case.
Exactly. Cities and corporations do this all the time.
City of Colton for example. Someone says the fell in a pothole the city pays out ten thousand. They don’t even bother with it, they just pay. It’s a nuisance fee.
If you have been paying attention you have noticed that everything gets buried by the loser press.
Get the info out and ignore the revolutionaries. Straight ahead.
My analysis: Cohen knew the allegations by Daniels would be volatile and out of his own money he paid to have her sign an agreement of nondisclosure. That was done without Trump’s knowledge. Trump was truthful. He did not know about the payment to Daniels.
Cohen told Trump what he had done and Trump had to reimburse him for the money.
I suspect that’s the end of the marriage if he told Melania that all this was untrue.
