Trump lawyer says ex-president lied about Stormy Daniels payoff to avoid breaching agreement

The former President's lawyer said that Donald Trump only lied about not knowing of the payoff Stormy Daniels received because he couldn't break a confidentiality agreement. Ahead of Trump running for office, his former lawyer Michael Cohen arranged a payment of $130,000 to adult film actress Stormy Daniels to stop her disclosing an affair she and Trump allegedly had in 2006. 'He would be in violation of the agreement if he told the truth' Trumps latest lawyer Joe Tacopina claimed. Credit : MSNBC
