Trump's Longtime Lawyer Says He Paid Stormy Daniels Out of His Own Pocket

At some point after President Trump's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, wired $130,000 to adult film actress Stephanie Clifford (whose stage name is Stormy Daniels), the bank he used flagged the transaction and reported it to the Treasury Department, the Wall Street Journal reported Monday, citing a person familiar with the matter.

Daniels' lawyer received the payment on October 27, 12 days before the presidential election, as Cohen had missed two deadlines to pay the bill because he had trouble getting in touch with Trump in the crazed final days of the presidential campaign, a source told the Journal.

In a new Wall Street Journal report about the Daniels payoff, sources tell the publication that "after Mr. Trump's victory, Mr. Cohen complained to friends that he had yet to be reimbursed for the payment to [Daniels]".

Last month Cohen said he paid the $130,000 - given to Daniels for her signing of a non-disclosure agreement - out of his own pocket, adding that it didn't break any laws.

According to Yevtushenko, twenty-four mines were fired at Damascus and its suburbs from Eastern Ghouta in the past day. The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said on March 4 that most of the captured areas were farmlands.

Michael Cohen, U.S. President Donald Trump's personal attorney, speaks to the media after finding out the Senate Intelligence Committee hearing at which he was to appear was canceled, on September 19, 2017 in Washington, DC. The hefty transaction, wired through an anonymous limited liability company, drew the attention of First Republic bankers, who reported it to the Treasury Department as suspicious, a second source said. The date it was flagged is unclear.

Cohen did not return a request for comment from the Daily News Monday. The Journal said the review could have come in response to a subpoena or to regulators, and the bank told the Post that it would not "confirm or comment on inquiries from regulatory agencies or law enforcement, including subpoenas".

"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", Cohen said.

Some members of Congress have started to show interest in Cohen's payment to Daniels as it might have violated campaign-finance laws.
