President Donald Trump reportedly knew about the $130,000 payment his longtime personal attorney made to adult film star Stormy Daniels, long before he denied any knowledge of it, The New York Times reports. The transaction took place in October 2016, just before the presidential election. It was not immediately clear exactly when Trump learned of the payment.

President Donald Trump reportedly knew about a $130,000 payment his longtime personal attorney made to adult film star Stormy Daniels, months before he flatly denied having knowledge of the transaction, two people familiar with the incident told The New York Times in a report published on Friday.

Attorney Michael Cohen’s $130,000 payment to Daniels was made as part of a nondisclosure agreement meant to prohibit Clifford from discussing a sexual affair she said she had with Trump in 2006.See the rest of the story at Business Insider
