Trump's press secretary mentions ties to Stormy legal battle

AM Links: Trump, Tariffs, Stormy Daniels

Trump's longtime lawyer Michael Cohen has said there was no affair and that he paid the porn actress $130,000 out of his own pocket just days before the 2016 election.

Daniels, who says she was given hush money to keep a 2006 affair with Trump quiet, claims a nondisclosure pact she signed is not valid because Trump never signed it.

Donald Trump's lawyer used Trump Organization email while negotiating a $130,000 payment of hush money to a porn actress who says she had an affair with the future president, her attorney said Friday.

Utah Jazz may catch unexpected break after Anthony Davis injury
Mirotic made 10 of 12 shots and is shooting 56.3 percent over his last four games. "And that's good for us", Brooks said. The second quarter did not get any better for the Kings as the Pelicans continued to stomp on the accelerator.

If "Mr. Trump intentionally omitted this material information from his financial disclosures as part of a larger scheme to hide his relationship with Ms. Daniels, that would be no small thing", said Norm Eisen, chairman of CREW.

Trump has been openly critical of the state's political leaders and policies.

As NPR's Tamara Keith reported, what was notable about Sanders' statement that the arbitration was won "in the president's favor" is that Trump is not technically named in the nondisclosure agreement or the restraining order. "He has not said anything as negative about her and has not attacked her, which suggests to me she does have something serious in terms of evidence against him". On Friday that confusion extended to the White House.

Australia 'called in' golf legend to help lobby Trump on steel tariffs
The initial announcement caused threats of countermeasures, notably from the head of the European Union. Australia has won favour with the United States for its commitment to military expansion in the region.

On Wednesday, Michael Avenatti, Clifford's attorney, responded to Sanders' comments on MSNBC'S The Last Word.

Trump has not publicly addressed the alleged illicit dalliance.

Cohen, who says he used personal funds through a home equity loan to "facilitate" the payment, has denied that the money came from the Trump Organization or the Trump campaign, leaving open the possibility that it came from Trump himself. It said the events raise questions relating to "possible campaign finance, tax, legal ethics and other legal violations, raise serious doubts about the credibility of President Trump's repeated denials of sexual misconduct, and pose risks of future efforts to extort or otherwise improperly influence the President".
