Donald Trump DID know about a $130,000 payment made to porn star Stormy Daniels and reimbursed his lawyer Michael Cohen, Rudy Giuliani sensationally admitted last night.
The slip-up came during a live TV interview in which Giuliani, a long-time friend of Trump’s who has recently joined his legal team, was trying to explain why the payment was not a problem for the President.
In an interview with Trump ally Sean Hannity on Fox News, Giuliani maintained that the $130,000 was “perfectly legal”. But in unguarded moment, the former New York mayor also said the money had been “funneled… through a law firm, and the president repaid it.” Those words directly contradict months of statements from both the White House and President Trump himself.
The saga began when it emerged Trump’s long-time lawyer and friend Michael Cohen had paid 39-year-old Stormy Daniels, real name Stephanie Clifford, to keep quiet about an alleged affair shortly before the 2016 election.
