Just as he never says a bad word about Putin, he somehow never responds to questions about Stormy Daniels‘ claims they had a nearly yearlong affair that started shortly after Melania Trump had given birth.
One has to imagine it’s going against every misogynistic bully instinct in Trump’s body, but he never utters a word about her — until now!
After lawyer Michael Cohen was found to have paid the adult film actress $130,000 in hush money, he claimed he did it A) with his own money, B) without his client’s knowledge, and C) even though he didn’t think her story was true.
On Air Force One Thursday, POTUS was asked if he knew about it or not and responded simply:
When asked a followup about WHY Cohen would have possibly made the payment on his own, a big no-no for lawyers, Trump responded:
“You’ll have to ask Michael Cohen. Michael is my attorney. You’ll have to ask Michael.”
Hmm. Did he clam up because he knows he’s not supposed to talk about it?
If Cohen paid that much to protect Trump’s campaign, it’s an illegal contribution. If Trump agreed to secretly give him the money, it’s a campaign finance violation.
So he and Cohen are on thin legal ice. Or (just)ice?
