When it rains, it pours. Just ask Donald Trump, who is still dealing with repercussions from his affair with porn star Stormy Daniels — and the money she received to keep her silence about their affair. Last January, In Touch published an interview with Stormy from 2006 where she detailed her illicit relationship with the politician before he was elected president.
Shortly after its release, Donald's attorney Michael Cohen admitted to paying the video vixen $130,000 of his own money in 2016. Now, two years later, the Wall Street Journal is reporting that the First Republic bank has flagged the wire transfer and notified the Treasury Department, which could suggest money laundering.
If this article is true, it shows Cohen coordinated with @realDonaldTrump or his campaign. That makes the $130k payment to Stormy Daniels a felony in violation of federal election law.— Ted Lieu (@tedlieu) March 5, 2018
Last week @RepKathleenRice & I asked @FBI to investigate this suspicious payment. https://t.co/WbH4013apV
Or according to Democratic congressman Ted Lieu, a serious violation of federal election law. "If this article is true, it shows Cohen coordinated with @realDonaldTrump or his campaign. That makes the $130k payment to Stormy Daniels a felony in violation of federal election law," he tweeted. "Last week @RepKathleenRice and I asked @FBI to investigate this suspicious payment."
While the former Apprentice star continues to deny the allegations he cheated on his wife Melania with Stormy (real name: Stephanie Clifford) shortly after the birth of their son, his attorney's actions tell a very different story. "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 told The New York Times. "The payment to Ms. Clifford was lawful, and was not a campaign contribution or a campaign expenditure by anyone."
And now that Donald's attorney seemingly violated their non-disclosure agreement, Stormy is reportedly ready to reveal more about her affair with the POTUS in a tell-all interview, which has yet to be announced. However, that doesn't mean you can't catch her on her "Make America Horny Again" strip club tour in the meantime.
