New report suggests Trump personally coordinated $130000 payment to adult film star

Trump's Longtime Lawyer Says He Paid Stormy Daniels Out of His Own Pocket

Daniels' lawyer received the payment on October 27, 12 days before the presidential election, as Cohen had missed two deadlines to pay the bill because he had trouble getting in touch with Trump in the crazed final days of the presidential campaign, a source told the Journal.

The Democratic lawmaker also suggested that Stormy Daniels, the adult film star who had an alleged affair with the president, should give her "interpretation" of Trump's mental state as she must have observed him up close.

Cohen has claimed the cash was his own way to help Trump by making Daniels' "false" claim disappear.

"Ms. Clifford was owed the money in return for signing an agreement that bars her from discussing an alleged sexual encounter with Mr. Trump in 2006, people familiar the matter said".

Donald Trump tariffs would damage US, global economies
The Beer Institute , the beer industry's national trade association, also came out against Trump's tariff decision on Thursday. On the heels of a proposed Trump Administration tariff on imported steel and aluminum , USA stocks fell sharply on Thursday.

Huckabee Sanders was asked if candidate Trump was aware that such a payment was made.

After Trump's shock victory over Hillary Clinton, Cohen is said to have complained to his friends that he had not been paid back for sending the funds to Clifford.

President Trump during a meeting in the Cabinet Room of the White House last month.

First Republic Bank, which Cohen used for the transaction, flagged the transfer as suspicious with the Treasury Department, the source also told the Journal. Cohen refused to say if he was reimbursed by the Trump organization or Trump personally. "Not that I'm aware of", Sanders replied.

Man shoots himself near White House
The incident took place in the absence of the US President Donald Trump as he was on a visit to Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida. The suicide took place a week after an armed Tennessee woman slammed her auto into a security barrier near the White House.

City National Bank launched its own inquiry into the transaction a year after it occurred, which one of the Journal's sources said was an unusual move. That statement is important because if Trump and his campaign did, er, collude with the payment, then it could have violated campaign finances laws.

"As a matter of policy, we don't confirm or comment on inquiries from regulatory agencies or law enforcement, including subpoenas", City National told CNBC.

It wasn't until almost a year later that City National Bank, where Cohen's funds were received by Clifford's lawyer, launched its own internal inquiry around the transaction.

Rick Ross Hospitalized & On Life Support
