Donald Trump’s disgraced former attorney has shown a bombshell cheque he says the president used to repay him after he gave hush money to porn star, Stormy Daniels.
During Wednesday’s opening statement to Congress, Michael Cohen produced a copy of the $35,000 cheque, bearing the president’s signature, that he says was one of 11 paid to him by the president in 2017. He paid porn star Stormy Daniels $130,000 11 days before the November 2016 presidential election to cover up an alleged one night stand between the porn star and Trump in 2006, shortly after Melania Trump had their child.
Cohen told Congress:
It was ultimately determined that Trump was oging to pay the $130,000. It was declared to be a retainer for services that would be provided for the year of 2017. There was no retrainer agreement.
Cohen also shared a copy of a letter he sent Trump’s old schools and colleges warning them that the president would sue if his grades were ever released without his permission. Bear in mind that Trump called out then-President Barack Obama for refusing to release his own test scores in 2011.
Cohen also shared a copy of a bank statement. Cohen says he borrowed against equity in his home to pay off Stormy Daniels, real name Stephanie Clifford.
Trump has denied all Cohen’s allegations and pointed out that Cohen is a convicted Felon
