Is the forecast ahead stormy? I suppose we will find out soon enough.
Preside Donald Trump finally spoke about the allegations of an affair, brought forward by adult film actress Stormy Daniels, and he denies knowledge of a $130,000 payment for her silence.
He did not go into depth about it at all, but when asked if he knew about the payment, he simply answered, “No.”
The White House has also aggressively denied the rumors.
The president said he did not know where his attorney Michael Cohen got the money to pay Daniels, which was part of an agreement to block her from publicly alleging she had an affair with Trump.
The president spoke aboard the presidential aircraft while traveling back to Washington from an event in West Virginia.
When further questions rolled out from reporters, Trump replied, “You’ll have to ask Michael Cohen. Michael is my attorney. You’ll have to ask Michael,” and added, “No, I don’t know,” when asked if he knew where Cohen got the money.
Cohen has previously said he made the payment personally using money from a home equity line of credit.
The adult film actress said in an interview that aired last month that she was threatened after she tried to go public with her story about sleeping with Trump at a golf outing in 2006.
Of course if you ask Michael Avenatti, Stormy’s lawyer, Trump’s response “proves” Daniel’s allegations.
“We very much look forward to testing the truthfulness of Mr. Trump’s feigned lack of knowledge concerning the $130k payment as stated on Air Force One,” Avenatti wrote on Twitter, “As history teaches us, it is one thing to deceive the press and quite another to do so under oath. #searchforthetruth #basta.”
Which doesn’t make sense because Trump simply denied the allegation with a “no.”
Trying to make mountains out of molehills, are we?
