Trump denies paying any hush money to this ADULT star
President Trump denied on Thursday of having the knowledge of hush money being paid to the adult star who claimed to have an intimate relationship with Trump in the past.
His simple denial is an assertion that may complicate his case against the adult start which is pending before a court.
It was his first public remarks regarding the widely covered matter aboard Air Force One as he returned to Washington.
In response to a question regarding whether he knew or not about the payment to the adult star, to which he simply said, “No.”
Upon being asked about Michael D. Cohen, his personal lawyer, had paid the hush money, to which the President replied, “You’ll have to ask Michael Cohen. Michael is my attorney, and you’ll have to ask Michael Cohen.”
He also claimed to have no knowledge about the origin of the money $130k that was paid by his lawyer to Stormy Daniels.
The adult star has said that she received the $130k before the 2016 elections. She is now suing Trump to declare the agreement null and void because it was not signed by him.
Trump’s comments on the matter could create problems for him and his legal team. Ms. Clifford’s case got strong, because even though the agreement was confidential but the agreement becomes invalid if Trump denies being a party to it.
According to the adult star’s lawyer, Michael J. Avenatti, “Our case just got that much better,” Mr. Avenatti said in the statement. “We very much look forward to testing the truthfulness of Mr. Trump’s feigned lack of knowledge concerning the $130,000 as he stated on Air Force One.”
“As history teaches us, it is one thing to deceive the press and quite another to do so under oath,” he added.
He later took it to Twitter claiming Trump’s comments will give him an advantage in the legal dispute.
