Payment to Stormy Daniels

In January 2018, the Wall Street Journal reported that Michael Cohen used Essential Consultants LLC and pseudonyms to pay, in October 2016 prior to the presidential election, adult film actress Stormy Daniels regarding an alleged affair she had with Trump in 2006. Cohen told The New York Times in February 2018 that the $130,000 was paid to Daniels from his own pocket, that it was not a campaign contribution, and that he was not reimbursed for making it by either the Trump Organization or the Trump campaign. The Washington Post later noted that, by stating that he used his own money to “facilitate” the payment, Cohen was not ruling out the possibility that Trump, as an individual, reimbursed Cohen for the payment. NBC News reported that Cohen initiated a private arbitration case against Daniels on February 27, 2018, and obtained a restraining order that states that Daniels will face penalties if she discusses in public her alleged relationship with Trump.

On March 5, the Wall Street Journal cited anonymous sources recounting Cohen as saying he missed two deadlines to pay Daniels because Cohen “couldn’t reach Mr. Trump in the hectic final days of the presidential campaign”, and that after Trump’s election, Cohen had complained that he had not been reimbursed for the payment. Cohen described this report as “fake news”.

On March 9, NBC News reported that Cohen had used his Trump Organization email to negotiate with Daniels regarding her nondisclosure agreement, and that Cohen had used the same Trump Organization email to arrange for a transfer for funds which would eventually lead to Daniels’ payment. In response, Cohen acknowledged that he had transferred funds from his home equity line of credit to the LLC and from the LLC to Daniels’ attorney.

On March 26, David Schwarz, a lawyer for Cohen, told ABC’s Good Morning America that Daniels was lying in the 60 Minutes interview. A cease-and-desist letter was sent by Cohen’s lawyer claiming Daniels’ statements constituted “libel per se and intentional infliction of emotional distress” to Cohen.
