On February 13 2018, Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen acknowledged that in 2016, he paid $130,000 of his own money to adult-film actress Stormy Daniels. Cohen further said that The Trump Organization and the Trump campaign were not involved in the payment and did not reimburse him

In an interview on 60 Minutes on March 25 2018, Daniels said that she briefly spanked Trump with a copy of a Forbes magazine; that she had sex with Trump in the same encounter; that she later met Trump privately and did not have sex on that occasion; and that, under pressure from her former business manager–lawyer, she signed multiple false statements that the affair did not happen.

On April 5 2018, Trump said he did not know about the $130,000 payment Cohen made to Daniels. He also said he was not aware of why Cohen had made the payment or where he got the money

An April 26 2018, Trump admits that Cohen:

“Would represent me and represent me on some things. He represents me like with this crazy Stormy Daniels deal, he represented me.”

On May 2 2018, Trump’s new Attorney Rudy Giuliani tells Sean Hannity on Fox News that:

“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.”

On May 5 2018, Trump contradicts Giuliani’s statements, saying:

“When Rudy made the statements — Rudy’s great —  but Rudy had just started and wasn’t totally familiar with everything. We love Rudy, he’s a special guy. What he really understands is, this is a witch-hunt. He understands that probably better than anybody … but when he made certain statements, he just started yesterday.”

Trump tweets “Mr. Cohen, an attorney, received a monthly retainer, not from the campaign and having nothing to do with the campaign, from which he entered into, through reimbursement, a private contract between two parties, known as a non-disclosure agreement, or NDA. These agreements are very common among celebrities and people of wealth. In this case it is in full force and effect and will be used in Arbitration for damages against Ms. Clifford (Daniels). The agreement was used to stop the false and extortionist accusations made by her about an affair, despite already having signed a detailed letter admitting that there was no affair. Prior to its violation by Ms. Clifford and her attorney, this was a private agreement. Money from the campaign, or campaign contributions, played no roll in this transaction.”
