President Trump, in a series of tweets Thursday, defended reimbursing $130,000 to his personal lawyer Michael Cohen for a payment to porn star Stormy Daniels, arguing that its common among celebrities and people of wealth and that no campaign money was used.
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 , the president wrote in the first of three tweets about the payment, revealed Wednesday by Rudy Giuliani.
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) , Trump continued in his most extensive comments so far about the Daniels matter.

The campaign cash was his own money anyway.
So even with the latest developments with the situation involving North Korea, the flavour of the month for the Newszak still is...Stormy Daniels. Give me strength, big time.
Did she report $130,000 as income?
If the President says it ain’t so, then it ain’t so.
Too much on our plate to worry about this.
Excellent question! Did she indeed...
Paging Lois Lerner... Paging Lois Lerner
Smart move by Trump. Now they have NOTHING on Cohen regarding the payoff...and no one gives a damn about what Trump did or did not do with the porno freak, as Trump never claimed to be the Pope or Mother Teresa when he ran.
The retainer agreement reimbursed Cohen, and not Trump getting personally involved in a reimbursement. It’s like having a mortgage payment automatically deducted from your account. You do it, but you also don’t do it.
It’s like the dossier slur thatTrump was in a bed that Obama had slept in yada yada. Why don’t they just identify what bed in Russia Obama did sleep in?
‘and no one gives a damn about what Trump did or did not do with the porno freak, as Trump never claimed to be the Pope or Mother Teresa when he ran.’
Did she give the money back, since she obviously didn’t keep her mouth shut? I’m sure if this situation happened Trump and an attorney would NOT have left something like that out of an agreement.
President Trump is worth $8 BILLION dollars !
$130,000 is pocket change to a guy like that!
This space with this subject .. and all the rest on paper and on TV, should be about North Korea, and about all the accomplishments going on with the administration.
This space with this article, is wasted time, space and opportunity! I don’t ever want to see that prostitute’s name again... nor ‘collusion’... nor any other negative item they want to keep alive for hate sake!
Whatever happened with the investigation into the secret slush fund that our politicians use to pay off sexual harrassment/assault claims ?
That is TAXPAYER money they are using.
