Giuliani: Trump repaid Cohen $130,000 for Stormy Daniels hush agreement – POLITICO

What a relief, for those of us, who believed that there was a chance that Michael Cohen and his family would be put out on the street due to the second mortgage he took out on his house or home. Well now we know the president paid him back for the hush money regarding the self-described pornstar Stormy Daniels.

Michael Avenatti, Stephanie Clifford aka Stormy Daniels attorney, must be playing four dimensional chess against Rudy Giuliani who I doubt knows how to play checkers. This cannot be a wonderful night at the White House. Not only does this implicitly say that the president paid off a pornstar but most likely means that he also slept with her. I cannot imagine how much Sadness the first lady must be feeling.

I wonder if this is another case of the White House throwing Michael Cohen under the bus? It certainly makes them seem less sympathetic now that he’s been paid back the money.

Stormy Daniels sues Trump, says ‘hush agreement’ invalid because he never signed – NBC News

As the current occupant of the White House was in his motorcade going from Mara Largo to another one of his golf games, numbering over a hundred since his taking office, he saw a sign on the side of the road. The sign was in front of a gentlemen’s club and it said that there was a hurricane coming and was called Stormy.

In this Deluge of never-ending scandals even the most hardened pundit is finding it difficult to keep all of these in some sort of order. The Stormy Daniels story would have been Front Page News if this had been during the Clinton administration. A president’s lawyer paid a woman who allegedly was in a consensual relationship with the person running for the presidency. This money was paid in such a way that it triggered alarms in the banking system setup to track cartel money and money from terrorist organizations. And this is who is our president today.

Let’s forget about the politics. At the time of this relationship Donald Trump had had his first child with his current wife. The cold shoulder that his wife is now showing to the president is more than adequate to tell us how she feels about this whole sordid affair.

This is going to be much harder to sweep under the rug by an Administration that seems eager to sweep everything under the rug. Look at Gary Cohn’s departure from the White House today. It was never mentioned until it was made public by the fact that he wasn’t at the meeting in the White House he was supposed to attend.

This is a White House of intrigue and not one that is promoting the welfare of the American people. Everyone I speak to says the same thing to me I hope we can live through this and get out of this whole, I pray to the universe that we do.
