The house of cards is starting to fall for Donald Trump! Though he passionately denied ever cheating on his wife with adult actress Stormy Daniels, she told In Touch the dirty details on their affair in a bombshell interview. And now, his longtime lawyer Michael Cohen, who had also denied the affair, is admitting that he paid off the porn star out of his own pocket, according to the New York Times on Feb. 13!

“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,” he said in a statement. “The payment to Ms. Clifford was lawful, and was not a campaign contribution or a campaign expenditure by anyone.”
Cohen didn't explain whether or not Trump was even aware that he had paid the actress. The lawyer also refused to answer follow-up questions about the reason he gave Stormy money or whether or not the $130,000 was the only payment he ever made to her.
Of course, the money paid to Stormy in 2016 was believed to be in exchange for her silence about her affair with Trump beginning back in 2005. Despite allegedly signing a non-disclosure agreement, she revealed everything in an interview with In Touch in 2011, which pre-dated any agreement. In it, she describes how she met Trump at a golf tournament in Nevada, and quickly got intimate with him.

Stormy claimed that Trump rarely spoke of his wife, Melania, but that she felt bad for her. She also said he compared her to his own daughter Ivanka Trump, and that she could describe his junk perfectly if she had to. We're willing to bet more information will come out soon!
