Reaching, buddy. Really reaching. Claiming that she was paid 'hush money', and then claiming it was a donation to her by the election campaign, in order to make it fit into the ethics rules of use of campaign funds? Square hole, meet too big of a round peg, no matter the size of your hammer.
He did, he didn't… she did, she didn't… Trump has been so successful at desensitizing America to what would otherwise be considered 'shocking' that this no longer holds any interest and will be shrugged off as "Fake news".
The adult film star who allegedly had a sexual relationship with President Trump is now suing him, saying the "Hush" agreement that silenced the story was invalid. Daniels filed the civil lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court, contending that the non-disclosure agreement she signed was invalid because Trump never signed it. The lawsuit is the first time Daniels has openly admitted to having a "Hush" agreement to cover up her relationship with Trump. Ref. USAToday.
Someone or some group is obviously putting her up to this because she has waited a long time. This is also a warning for anyone that thinks hush money truly keeps someone hushed.
Trump could face trouble if he tries to keep former porn star Stormy Daniels silent, legal experts say. The salacious details of Stormy Daniels' alleged affair with Donald Trump more than a decade ago have seeped out to the public, but the porn-star-turned-household-name has been barred from telling the story herself. That might soon change, legal experts say, because even taking the issue to arbitration essentially is an acknowledgement by the president that he was involved in paying Daniels $130,000 to keep quiet about their affair. Ref. USAToday.
Stormy Daniels has offered to pay back the $130,000 of hush money so she can talk about her alleged affair with Trump. The porn actress, who's been on a tour of strip clubs across the country, has offered to repay the $130,000 she received in October 2016 in a payment arranged by Michael Cohen, President Trump’s attorney. Cohen said he used a line of credit on his own home to make the payment, which was part of a deal for Daniels to not say anything publicly about the alleged affair she had with Trump in 2006. Ref.
