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.

An ugly conundrum lies at the heart of the border crisis dominating our news coverage and social media feeds, complete with the sights and sounds of children separated from their parents: Under a 1997 settlement between the federal government and immigration activists, the government must choose between enforcing the law inhumanely and not enforcing it at all. The consent decree, known as the Flores agreement, was the product of nine years of litigation over the detention of unaccompanied minors apprehended crossing the border. It requires detained minors to be released as expeditiously as possible. In 2015, the 9th Circuit interpreted Flores´

A handful of new federal prosecutors have joined one of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s cases — an indication that he is preparing to hand off at least one prosecution to others when his office completes its investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. In a pair of court filings Friday, the special counsel added four assistant U.S. attorneys to the case against Russian entities and people accused of running an online influence operation targeting American voters. People familiar with the staffing decision said the new prosecutors are not joining Mueller’s team, but rather are being added to the case

Hundreds of thousands of people upset about the separation of immigrant families at the border are putting their money into the fight, and making history in the process. A Facebook fundraiser called "Reunite an immigrant parent with their child" has now raised more than $19.4 million in less than a week, with more than 500,000 people contributing. Facebook spokesperson Roya Winner told ABC News it is the largest fundraiser to date created on the Facebook Fundraisers tool.

TIME cover paints Trump as immigration ‘boogeyman,’

A misleading TIME magazine cover of President Trump looming over a crying migrant girl has exemplified the media’s eagerness to portray the administration’s immigration policies in the harshest possible light. But it seems the iconic magazine treated the Obama administration with comparative kid gloves over similar practices, and with covers focused instead on “Manopause” and butter. Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer John Moore captured the iconic photo of a 2-year-old Honduran girl crying as her mother was detained along the U.S.-Mexico border. For TIME and others, she quickly became the face of a “zero tolerance” policy that had resulted in children of detained

Just over a year ago, White House Budget Director Mick Mulvaney was being raked over the coals for his budget blueprint. In addition to supposed cuts to the Meals on Wheels program (which weren’t really cuts), the document projected savings of $72.5 billion within Social Security’s two main programs for the disabled. Liberal journalists injected outrage into their reports and columns. Some denounced this modest frugality as President Trump’s “deceitful attack on the disabled” and called the justifications for the reforms "false claims." Others snarkily but accurately noted that the cuts “will hurt Trump counties,” which perhaps should have signaled that

If you haven’t, here’s what it said… Most voters blame the parents of the separated children at the border for the latest illegal immigration crisis, not the federal government. When families are arrested and separated after attempting to enter the United States illegally, 54% of Likely U.S. Voters say the parents are more to blame for breaking the law. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that only 35% believe the federal government is more to blame for enforcing the

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. Seattle’s predicament is emblematic of the broader

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. (He was voted best television correspondent in 1986, ‘87, ‘88 and ‘89 by readers of the Washington Journalism

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. His forthcoming report will

Sarah Sanders was kicked out of a Virginia restaurant with her family on Friday night because the manager did not want to serve her following the backlash over Trump´s child migrant separation policy, it has been claimed. Jaike Foley-Schultz, a server at the Red Hen in Lexington, said the White House Press Secretary lasted just two minutes in the restaurant until his boss asked her to leave. ´I just served Sarah Huckabee Sanders for a total of 2 minutes before my owner kicked her out along with 7 of her other family members,´ he posted on Facebook.

Judicial Watch today released newly obtained internal IRS documents, including material revealing that Sen. John McCain’s former staff director and chief counsel on the Senate Homeland Security Permanent Subcommittee, Henry Kerner, urged top IRS officials, including then-director of exempt organizations Lois Lerner, to “audit so many that it becomes financially ruinous.” Kerner was appointed by President Trump as Special Counsel for the United States Office of Special Counsel. The explosive exchange was contained in notes taken by IRS employees at an April 30, 2013, meeting between Kerner, Lerner, and other high-ranking IRS officials. Just ten days following the meeting, former

The Minnesota Vikings made history on Thursday. Vikings players, coaches and members of the LGBTQ community came together for a first of its kind inclusion summit held by an NFL team. The LGBTQ summit and fundraising event was held at the TCO Performance Center Auditorium in Eagan. It centered around bridging the gap between the LGBTQ community and sports. (snip) Kluwe´s hope is that the NFL and other sports leagues take notice, and it sparks conversations leading to more acceptance of the LGBTQ community in the athletic world.

Former Fox News contributor George Will says voters must punish Republican “poodles” during the midterm elections to “quarantine” the president. An op-ed in Friday’s Washington Post by the long-time political pundit and conservative calls for voters to end the “carnage of Republican misrule” in Washington. Mr. Will claimed the “most telegenic example” of a need to oust Republicans exists with the administration’s “zero tolerance” policy regarding illegal immigrants along the U.S. southern border. “The Republican-controlled Congress, which waited for Trump to undo by unilateral decree the border folly they could have prevented by actually legislating, is an advertisement for the unimportance of

Taxes: Whatever you think about the issue of taxing internet sales, the simple fact is that the Supreme Court has just guaranteed that people across the country will now be paying more in state taxes. It´s hard for us to see how this is good news. In its 5-4 decision on South Dakota v. Wayfair, the court overturned two previous rulings that prevented states from taxing sales of out-of-state companies. That meant a catalog company based in Maine didn´t have to navigate 45 state sales-tax laws to figure out how much each customer owed, and then remit that money to the

How´s this for sneaky? Sen. John McCain, not too long after seeking conservative and Republican votes in his failed 2008 bid for the presidency, went right after those same conservative voters without telling them, by egging on the IRS to ruin them. It´s the sort of political back-stabbing that defies belief, taking an active role in destroying the Tea Party, which was an authentic grassroots movement of local groups calling for smaller government. But sure enough, Judicial Watch has found McCain´s central role right there in the documents: Judicial Watch today released newly obtained internal IRS documents, including material revealing that Sen.

A Canadian television comedy writer was forced to apologize this week after he appeared to threaten Donald Trump Jr.’s 4-year-old daughter on Twitter. “Don’t worry, we’re coming for Chloe, too,” Pat Dussault tweeted Wednesday morning to the president’s eldest son. The tweet was deleted, but not before actor James Woods snapped a screenshot and notified the Secret Service. Mr. Trump Jr. retweeted both of Mr. James’ messages condemning Mr. Dussault. (Tweets) Mr. Dussault later posted an apology to Twitter, saying he let his emotions concerning President Trump’s zero tolerance immigration policy get the better of him. “I sincerely apologize to Donald Trump Jr.

Mexican presidential candidate Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) called for mass immigration to the United States during a speech Thursday, declaring it a “human right” for all North Americans. “And soon, very soon — after the victory of our movement — we will defend all the migrants in the American continent and all the migrants in the world,” Obrador said, adding that immigrants “must leave their towns and find a life in the United States.” He then declared it as “a human right we will defend,”

"I am not a unicorn," said Michelle Obama. "There are millions of kids like me out there." Mrs. Obama was discussing her upcoming memoir "Becoming," before a crowd of thousands at the American Library Association conference in New Orleans Friday (June 22). True, she may have been the first African-American first lady, but Obama´s ascent from a working class background to a professional career in Chicago and eventually the White House is a path that any American should be able to aspire to, she said. Unfortunately, "in this country we´ve gotten to a point where we kind of think there are only
