Trump’s lawyer admits paying
$130K to Stormy Daniels

New York Post, by Joe Tacopino

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 2/14/2018 4:31:01 AM

President Trump’s personal lawyer admitted on Tuesday that he paid off a porn star who allegedly had an affair with his boss — but insisted that the payout was his own money and not connected to the Trump Organization or the presidential campaign. Michael D. Cohen said in a statement to The New York Times that he paid Stormy Daniels $130,000 in 2016 — but did not give the newspaper a further explanation about why the payment was made. “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,”

Uh, pretty clear that Trump slept with her, and probably Omarosa too. He even insinuated that he would have slept with Ivanka.

But none of that matters anymore. A person´s character isn´t relevant in the quest to make America great again...and neither is the collective character of its citizenry.

Well, that´s the take-away as I see it.

If it’s true, and that’s a big if, I really don’t care. The left has set out to destroy Donald Trump and they believe this will do it. If we allow that to happen, the left has won and our country may as well kiss it’s arse goodbye. Trump may have the morals of an alleycat but that isn’t the point.

Trump is odious but what he may or may not have done in the bedroom is of far less consequence than what we know Obama, Hillary, and the entire rogues gallery of criminals have done.

To me, there’s no contest. I will take Trump with his flaws,rather than to turn over America in its ascendancy via Trump´s policies, over any Democrat.

We cannot let them win. If we do, shame on us.

#3, Wow. Had no idea we had someone with the ability to see into someone’s private life here on this salon. That is an extraordinary gift or was that just lurid speculation on your part? Unless you have proof, it would be wise to temper your comments when you actually have no knowledge of the facts behind the payment. I can’t help but find it strange that a personal attorney would divulge this information since it would fall under attorney/client privilege. Something is not right here. Best to wait and see exactly what this all means.

IF there was a one night stand or an affaire with a Stormy anyone, how does that matter? If there was no "sexual harassment" "rape" "force" or anything like that, what makes the lawyer a bad guy?? IF it was anyone else, and there is a problem on your mind about it, I would ask all here, who among you had no sexual contact with anyone of the opposite sex during your maturing years or since then?
If so please raise your hand, there just what I thought, no one!

Oh look over there a little bunny rabbit!

It´s well known that President Trump has gifted people money - people that he didn´t personally know, or sleep with.

He´s famous for taking a black Sharpie and circling article about people he´s read about, sending them checks from his personal account.

So far, we don´t ´KNOW´ that President Trump had an affair with Ms. Daniels.

Let´s not jump to conclusions.

#3 What do you mean a persons character doesn´t matter anymore? I have some serious doubts about yours as you act like you have first hand knowledge about this whole matter and then you bring Ivanka into it, I´d say that is a little slimy and an incredible reflection of a serious deficiency of character and decency.

I guess nothing matters in Liberal land when one is trying to destroy another go stand in the corner with Joy Bahar!

With apologies to Lucianne I am compelled to answer because this forum is designed for civil and respectable discussion and not for personal attacks or for picking fights. (See Rules & FAQ).

First, there must be some reason Trump´s personal attorney paid a porn actress a six-figure sum. As an act of random charity is simply not plausible. And as an attorney I know that this disclosure in no way devulges an attorney-client communication.

Omarosa was fired 3 times on the Apprentice. Piers Morgan has recently disclosed that Omarosa propositioned him for sex to somehow spice up the show. If this is true, and I have no reason to doubt it, it´s not a outlandish reach to believe that she also propositioned Trump. The opinion that they actually did have sexual relations is a rational theory because why else would such an incompetent person -- a determination Trump himself repeatedly made -- be then assigned as a White House adviser?

Trump is actually on tape (search for it) saying that if Ivanka was not his daughter he´d probably be dating her. Now we all experience fleeting thoughts that enter our mind now and then. That´s human nature. But a good deal of our intelligence and morality lies in our ability to inhibit and quickly dismiss such thoughts and to not entertain them. And certainly not to ever express them!

So what´s next, Charlie Sheen for President? I mean, why not? Everybody seems to want to be "winning". Well, wait a minute. Perhaps we have already effectively made him President. I´d love to engage in a compare and contrast in another venue. That would prove to be very amusing.

Well, perhaps I just hit a nerve....

Do I understand the article correctly that it was Trump´s lawyer, NOT Trump, who paid her? If that´s true, then I conclude there were NO "hotel room romps with Trump." In fact, I´ll be shocked if she wasn´t also paid by the Clinton machine to make those false allegations in the first place.

"And as an attorney...."

Funny, I´ve been a licensed and practicing lawyer for thirty-eight years, and it doesn´t appear that the suppositions contained in your "explanation" are a function of legal training, rather than pure speculation. Perhaps your reference to being an attorney is simply an appeal-to-authority logical fallacy.

Are you actually licensed to practice in any jurisdiction?

Well, in my opinion, the lawyer may have admitted this now because it was going to break in the news. The media is desperate to change the subject of the FBI weaponization against Trump. This is just the sort of thing the media loves, and plays right into their game plan of showing that Trump is a pig.

It just amazes me what anti Trump carrot the media will follow, yet refuse to cover major stories that could hurt the Dems, or their idol Obama. They can’t be so stupid that they think America doesn’t see that, can they?

I am not going to get caught up in the back and forth of posters but I have to say that I am amazed that Trump´s lawyer can be talking about this in any fashion.

My gosh, just look at the confidentiality clauses when going into a doctor´s office. All of these accusations are flying around and I am wondering what happened to decency, respect for privacy, and truth in a matter?

After all, isn´t that what the Clintons demanded with the Monica Lewinsky affair. There is a big difference in these two situations. One happened while one was President of the United States.

Most payouts include "Non-Disclosure" clauses. If true then this lawyer just violated it in a MAJOR way. So who´s covering his own legal fees for his obvious breach of contract with the POTUS and the woman? She wouldn´t talk, but his lawyer did? Thus stinks of a setup.

#6- Indeed, the Left is out to destroy President Trump at any cost. What matters is the reality that people change; who we are at 20-40-50 may not be who we are today—especially if/when people see the folly of their ways, then realize and appreciate their blessings, most often spouse, children, grandchildren.

#19- Absolutely. People can and do change.

#24- President Trump’s statement about probably dating his daughter is nothing more than a very proud father appreciating his daughter’s beauty, grace, and intellect. The twisted, distorted possible sexual innuendo is abhorrent and demented.

If you’ve eaten today, you should thank a farmer. If you regularly shop at your local grocery store or farmer’s market, then you should care about the stability and success of our nation’s farms and ranches. Across our country, more than 3 million producers operate farms that generate food for families around the world. As members of the House Agriculture Committee, we represent areas from California to New York, each of which rely heavily on our local farms that promote jobs and support countless workers and their families.

WASHINGTON — The Obama White House’s chief cyber official testified Wednesday that proposals he was developing to counter Russia’s attack on the U.S. presidential election were put on a “back burner” after he was ordered to “stand down” his efforts in the summer of 2016. The comments by Michael Daniel, who served as White House “cyber security coordinator” between 2012 and January of last year, provided his first public confirmation of a much-discussed passage in the book, “Russian Roulette: The Inside Story of Putin’s War on America and the Election of Donald Trump,” co-written by this reporter and David Corn,

For the last few months, James Brien Comey, the FBI director fired by Donald Trump in the midst of the Russia investigation, has presented himself as the Last Honest Man as he toured the country selling books and taking potshots at the president. How self-righteous is Comey? In the midst of the Russia maelstrom, he posted to his Instagram account a photo of the Potomac River falls outside Washington, adding a biblical quote: “Let justice roll down like waters and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream.” Now, justice is rolling in Comey’s direction, with the revelation that he is under investigation for

The anarchy and disorder dominating progressive cities across the West Coast recently hit a new low in Seattle. King County officials are looking to roll out a “safe injection van,” a legal venue at which addicts could shoot up illegal drugs unhindered and “safely.” The first of its kind in the United States, the van would manage to undermine further the rule of law while also doing little to help addicts. Seattle’s urban decay goes deeper, though, with skyrocketing rates of homelessness, an explosion in opioid usage and deaths, and spikes in violent crime.

It all really began with Sam Donaldson. Back in the days of Ronald Reagan, the brash and cantankerous reporter with the worst toupee in television history made his name by yelling at the president. He’d yell at him at White House events, on the South Lawn (where Reagan would pretend he couldn’t hear Donaldson over the chopper blades of Marine One), even in the Rose Garden. His aggressiveness (read: bad behavior) made Donaldson one of the first “star” reporters at the White House.

The other night MSNBC ran a fawning documentary about James Comey. It was full of howlers about the unfathomable depths of his “integrity.” None of the clips age well, but one in particular captured the utter lunacy of Comey serving as Mueller’s presumed chief witness — a clip in which Comey accuses Trump of “lies, plain and simple” for describing the FBI as “poorly led” and in “disarray.” Here is a former FBI director categorizing Trump’s opinion, and a manifestly correct one at that, as “lies.” That’s the fatuous, un-rigorous level on which Mueller’s probe is proceeding.

If you sought to preserve the violent, reactionary and undemocratic regimes of countries like El Salvador and Honduras -- and, to a great extent, Mexico -- into perpetuity, how would you do it? One way would be by providing a permanent U.S. safety valve for all their poor and downtrodden, the victims. Just as with Europe and the Middle East, open borders can salve the soul and make us all feel good about ourselves, but they come with a price. And that price is not just for the richer host countries in supplying costly services. It is even greater for the countries

Today, the Trump administration pulled the U.S. out of the cesspool known as the United Nations Human Rights Council. It did so in protest of the presence of notorious human rights abusers on the commission, as well as the commission’s blatant bias against Israel. Nikki Haley, our splendid U.N. ambassador, issued a blistering critique of the Council, explaining that it has become a “protector of human rights abusers and a cesspool of political bias.” She cited the admission of Congo as a member even as mass graves were being discovered there. She also noted the failure to address human rights abuses

REYNOSA, Mexico — Families waiting inside Mexico to cross into the US are increasingly nervous as reports of the child separations enforced under the Trump administration´s "zero tolerance policy" sow fear and anger on the other side of the border. At a migrant shelter in Reynosa, one of the country’s most dangerous cities, BuzzFeed News spoke with four families who are weighing whether to make another attempt at the border or come up with a Plan B — unfathomable for those who fled their countries afraid for their lives. As Claudia walked past Mexican immigration agents at the bridge connecting Reynosa and

The FBI may have "edited and changed" key witness reports in the Hillary Clinton and Russia investigations, a top House Republican charged in a hearing into FBI and Justice Department misconduct Tuesday. Freedom Caucus Chair Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C, also raised the possibility that the FBI misled the DOJ watchdog in an attempt to hide the identities of FBI employees who were caught sending anti-Trump messages. The House Judiciary and Oversight committees were questioning Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz over his bombshell report into FBI and DOJ misconduct during the Hillary Clinton email probe.

The long-awaited showdown between the Justice Department and Congress is finally here. It started late Friday afternoon. While the rest of the country was parsing the just-released report on the FBI from the Justice Department’s inspector general, senior congressional leaders and selected committee chairmen quietly met with FBI Director Christopher Wray and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein at a secure location in the basement of the Capitol. At issue was Justice and FBI’s continuing defiance of congressional subpoenas. At the top of this list is the demand from the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence for documents about why and whether the

FBI Director Wray has said nothing to reassure Americans that he understands the serious corruption highlighted in the IG report. The FBI´s cover-ups and stonewalling on Wray´s watch add to his credibility problems. Both in is his press conference after the IG report was released, and in his testimony Monday before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Director Wray demonstrated he was more concerned about protecting the reputation of the institution of the FBI than about the astonishing corruption of top FBI officials detailed in the IG report. During today’s hearing we heard about FBI agents who aren’t corrupt and how the Clinton email

Actor Peter Fonda apologized Wednesday afternoon for a threatening tweet in which he said Americans upset with the White House´s separation of illegal-immigrant families ´should rip Barron Trump from his mother´s arms and put him in a cage with pedophiles.´ The first lady´s office conferred with U.S. Secret Service about the incident. The agency wouldn´t say on Wednesday whether it had contacted the aging Oscar-winner directly. Fonda issued a statement hours later, shortly after President Donald Trump signed an executive order forbidding the government from detaining children separately from the adults who brought them across the U.S.-Mexico border. ´I tweeted

It lived an uneventful life in Earth´s oceans 500 million years ago, but now this newly discovered creature has an unusual honor: It´s been given the scientific name Obamus coronatus, a name that honors President Barack Obama´s passion for science. (Coronatus means "crowned.") The tiny, disc-shaped animal was about a 1/2 inch long, with raised spiral grooves on its surface. It spent its entire life embedded on the ocean floor, likely never moving, according to scientists from the University of California – Riverside. A second small animal, an egg-shaped critter that may have looked like a raisin, was also discovered.

Washington - A Republican strategist who managed Sen. John McCain´s unsuccessful 2008 presidential campaign said Wednesday he is leaving the Republican Party in the wake of the Trump´s administration´s immigration policies that have led to the separation of families. "29 years and nine months ago I registered to vote and became a member of The Republican Party which was founded in 1854 to oppose slavery and stand for the dignity of human life. Today I renounce my membership in the Republican Party. It is fully the party of Trump," Steve Schmidt tweeted early Wednesday morning. Schmidt went on to call the party

LANSING — The unprecedented outpouring of activism from students after the shooting at Marjorie Douglas Stoneman High School in Parkland, Fla., in February is the genesis for a bill introduced in the Legislature last week that would change the voting age in Michigan to 16. "We allow 16-year-olds to go off and get jobs and pay taxes, but we fail to allow them to exercise their voice come election time," said Sen. David Knezek, D-Dearborn Heights. "Young people are setting aside their differences and identifying issues they think need to change. And they can do everything to get that change

Remember Anthony Weiner, also known as “Carlos Danger” — the former congressman who kept texting people pictures of well, umm, that part of his name? It all made quite the splash because he is married to Hillary Clinton’s consigliere and constant sidekick, Huma Abedin. Turns out that Anthony was such a perp — and so enthralled with his own — that he was sexting with a minor. That is a federal offense carrying up to 10 years in prison. So, he got raided by the New York Police Department and the New York office of the FBI. They seized his laptop computer.

Starbucks shares fell as much as 3% in after-hours trading Tuesday after the coffeehouse chain provided a weak sales forecast for its upcoming quarter and said it would shutter 150 stores in fiscal 2019. The Seattle-based company said it would close underperforming stores in “densely penetrated markets” and slow its rate of store growth. Starbucks said it traditionally closes about 50 underperforming locations annually. Starbucks said it expects same-store sales to grow 1% in its third fiscal quarter of 2017. Analysts had expected same-store sales to grow 3% in that period. “While certain demand headwinds are transitory, and some of

The liberal media has been manufacturing crises ad-infinitum to divert the public’s attention away from the Trump administration’s tremendous achievements and the Democratic establishment’s corruption, conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh warns. While Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s damning report proves the FBI colluded with the Hillary campaign to exonerate her in the email investigation, Democrats are bombarding Americans with fabricated propaganda about Trump’s “heartless” immigration policy, which consists of the president enforcing the already established laws, Limbaugh explained Tuesday. “We are smack dab in the middle of another manufactured media crisis about the supposed ‘Donald Trump, that purposely, wontedly,
