Trump Attorney Says He Paid Porn Actress Out of Own Pocket

Despite many public appearances in recent weeks, Clifford has dodged questions about the alleged affair, while Cohen has denied it.

Rodriguez added: "Everything is off now, and Stormy is going to tell her story".

Following the reports of Cohen's statement on Tuesday, as well as a story published by The Daily Beast this week regarding a book proposal by Cohen, Rodriguez told the Associated Press that Clifford now believes he violated the non-disclosure agreement.

Attorney Michael Cohen said Tuesday night he paid Clifford with his own funds, making the statement after a campaign finance advocacy organization urged the Federal Election Commission to investigate.

Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump's personal attorney, looks on as his attorney (not pictured) delivers a statement to reporters after meeting with Senate Intelligence Committee staff on Capitol Hill in Washington, U.S., September 19, 2017. She had said the affair took place soon after Trump's wife, Melania, gave birth to the couple's son, Barron.

The White House referred questions about the payment to Cohen.

"Neither the Trump organisation nor the Trump campaign was a party to the transaction with Clifford, and neither reimbursed me for the payment, either directly or indirectly", the New York Times quoted him as saying.

Mr. Cohen was among Mr. Trump's fiercest defenders during his time at the Trump Organization, often telling reporters during the 2016 presidential campaign that even false information about Mr. Trump could be damaging if printed.

As in that case, the payment by Trump's lawyer was not reported as a campaign expenditure nor an in-kind contribution, and the origin of the money is still unclear, said Paul Ryan, a vice president at Common Cause, the group that filed the complaint.

Despite that interview, both she and Trump have since denied claims of an affair - through his lawyer Cohen.

Cohen insisted he paid the cash from his own funds, but did not say why he had done so - reigniting claims it was meant to keep Daniels' quiet about the alleged affair.

Clifford has been taking advantage of her new-found notoriety.

In that interview, Clifford described a single sexual encounter with Trump, as well as a subsequent years-long relationship with the reality TV star.

AP has previously reported that In Touch held off on publishing her account after Mr Cohen threatened to sue the publication.

Clifford, meanwhile, believes that Cohen has violated the nondisclosure agreement the parties reportedly signed, and now she's looking into selling her story to media outlets, the New York Times reported, citing her manager.
