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!

Looks like he´s the one who had the affair.

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.

In November 2016, California voters passed Proposition 57, the Public Safety and Rehabilitation Act. Championed by Governor Jerry Brown, the measure expanded parole possibilities for nonviolent offenders and barred prosecutors from filing juvenile cases in adult court. Last month, California’s Supreme Court ruled that Proposition 57 could be applied retroactively. On those grounds, California’s Third Court of Appeals “conditionally reversed” the conviction of one of the most violent criminals in state history and expanded his prospects for early release.

I subscribed to the New Yorker for a number of years, but finally canceled my subscription when I couldn’t take the magazine’s left-wing politics any more. Those were the days when the New Yorker was famous for its scrupulous fact-checking. That time is long gone. The New Yorker is rabidly anti-Koch brothers. In fact, it was an interminable article or series by Jane Mayer, a notoriously unreliable journalist, that kicked off the Left’s obsession with Charles and David Koch.

Friday´s firing of FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, based on a report from the Office of Professional Responsibility, is only the beginning of what is likely to be the most explosive series of revelations in American history. Forget Watergate. It will be the distant past once the Inspector General´s reports—there apparently will be more than one—start to come out. This will be the "Gate of Gates." From the FBI and across the intelligence agencies an astonishing number of people are going to find themselves accused, one can safely predict at this point, of some atrocious behavior in

Tillerson, in one of his last statements as secretary of State, said that Novichok, the banned and highly poisonous nerve agent that hospitalized the Skripals on March 4, “clearly came from Russia.” “[T]his is a substance that is known to us and does not exist widely . . .

The late pundit Robert Novak used to say that government officials can choose to be either “a source or a target.” In other words, leak information to reporters and you can count on flattering coverage and protection from them. An added bonus to leaking, as former Intelligence Director Jim Clapper discovered, is that the network to which you are leaking will turn you into a paid contributor. According to Congressman Jim Jordan, speaking to Fox News, “Clapper was actually the guy leaking information” to CNN about the presidential briefing on the Steele dossier that served as the pretext for the

The city of Los Angeles has been barred from enforcing the vast majority of its gang injunctions, which applied restrictions on gang associations that authorities have long credited with reducing crime. The ruling Thursday by U.S. District Judge Virginia A. Phillips, an appointee of former President Bill Clinton, agreed with the American Civil Liberties Union that the injunctions were likely to be unconstitutionally broad, and affect people who did not have adequate opportunity to challenge them in court. The gang injunctions are civil court orders that have applied to nearly 9,000 people and 79 gang sets since 2000, the Los Angeles Times

An illegal immigrant from Guatemala was sentenced to seven months in jail late last month for paying human smugglers to bring his 16-year-old brother-in-law into the U.S., in what officials say is one of the first cases to punish a relative for enticing a family member to make the dangerous trek north. Miguel Pacheco-Lopez admitted he paid $6,100 to “coyotes,” as the smugglers are called, to bring his wife’s brother into the U.S. last year. He expected the teen — identified in court documents by the initials S.M. — to pay the majority of the money back at 8 percent interest. The

Over the course of our national immigration debate -- speaking of which, has anyone noticed that the DACA deadline expired without Congressional action? -- border hawks are sometimes scolded for highlighting examples of violent crimes committed by illegal immigrants. I tend to agree that judging groups of people by their worst elements is an unfair practice that can cross into toxic demagoguery and scapegoating. It´s true, for example, that immigrants commit fewer crimes on a percentage basis than natural-born Americans, though the same truth doesn´t apply to illegal immigrants. But we shouldn´t airbrush tough truths, either. Part of the conversation

Hillary Clinton will bring home a most undesired souvenir from India - a fractured wrist. The former Secretary of State injured her right hand on Tuesday, after slipping in a bathtub at the palace where she was staying in Jodhpur. Doctors were called to the Umaid Bhawan Palace and diagnosed the 70-year-old with a sprain, advising her to rest which forced her to cancel plans to visit the Mehrangarh Fort that evening. But the pain only worsened, and by Wednesday morning she decided to get her hand checked out at Goyal Hospital. Doctors there administered a CT Scan and an X-ray of Clinton´s wrist,

Sheet happens. Two days after a nasty fall in a hotel bathtub left Hillary Clinton with a broken wrist, the former Secretary of State was spotted making the best of a bad situation while continuing her tour of India. Hillary was seen in Jaipur on Thursday where she appeared to be adopting an out-of-sight and out-of-mind approach to her recent injury by wearing a kurta that had been customized to make one sleeve longer than other. To achieve this, the loose and flowing top was wrapped tightly around Hillary´s torso, transforming the once comfortable piece into a more constricting look complete

Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe on Thursday made a final pitch to the Justice Department about why he should not be fired just 72 hours before his retirement, leaving Attorney General Jeff Sessions to decide the matter with a deadline rapidly approaching. McCabe did not meet with Sessions, who was traveling Thursday, but with other senior officials, including Scott Schools, the most senior career attorney in the department. He arrived around 1 p.m. and departed four hours later. The decision could be consequential for McCabe´s financial future, as if he is fired, he could lose significant retirement benefits. The

The pedestrian bridge that collapsed at Florida International University´s Miami-Dade campus today, killing several people, was funded with $11.4 million from the U.S. Department of Transportation´s Transportation Investments Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) program. The TIGER program has come under repeated fire for awarding money based on politics rather than merit. (Snip) In 2014, the GAO released a report that was highly critical of how DOT handled the TIGER V grants, which included money for the FIU pedestrian bridge project. The report said DOT advanced projects with lower technical ratings in lieu of those with higher technical ratings and upgraded the

"I have received a number of letters from Palestinian academics," Stephen Hawking said in his declaration of support for the BDS movement. "They are unanimous that I should respect the boycott. In view of this, I must withdraw from the conference." The conference was in 2013, in Jerusalem, and hosted by Shimon Peres, an Israeli leader who spent his career as an indefatigable advocate of peace. It didn´t matter. Hawking joined the BDS movement because he never met a fashionable far-left cause he didn´t like, and Israel-bashing was one of his favorites.

Senator Jeff Flake loves to lecture. Jeff Flake especially loves to lecture Republicans. The good news is he will no longer be a senator next year. The bad news is this d**che will either be a regular on CNN or MSNBC. Flake spoke at St. Anselm college this week. He lectured Republicans on global warming junk science.

Former Obama Attorney General Eric Holder used violent anti-GOP rhetoric in a campaign stop in Wisconsin Thursday, challenging Republicans to a knife fight. Holder couched his violence in passive-aggressive legalese, saying, “We have to be ready to, you know, not do anything inappropriate, not do anything improper, certainly not do anything unlawful. But to the extent that they want to have a fight, let’s do it. You want to rumble, let’s rumble. You want to have a knife fight, we’re gonna do it.” Holder’s statement was reported by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Heading to the fall elections, Holder said Democrats need

If you are sick and tired of professors indoctrinating students in politicized classes that teach nothing of any use in real life, and hate the idea that tenure immunizes them from accountability, the next decade or so is going to provide some relief. The reckoning is coming, as shocked professors at a University of Wisconsin campus just discovered. The higher education bubble that Professor Glenn Reynolds of Instapundit has forecast to burst has just popped in Stevens Point, Wisconsin. It turns out that you can’t earn a living teaching subjects that students aren’t that interested in. Even if you have
