Trump reimbursed lawyer for payment to porn star: Giuliani

Former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani says it wasn’t a campaign violation because it did not use ‘campaign money’

Donald Trump meets with former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani.


Washington: Donald Trump reimbursed his long-time lawyer Michael Cohen over a $130,000 (Dh477,516) payment made to porn star Stormy Daniels, former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani said on Wednesday.

“That was money that was paid by his lawyer, the way I would do, out of his law firm funds or whatever funds, it doesn’t matter. The president reimbursed that over a period of several months,” Giuliani, who recently joined Trump’s legal team, told Fox News host Sean Hannity, adding that the payment did not represent a campaign financing violation because it was “not campaign money”.

Trump had initially denied all knowledge of the payment to Daniels, before admitting last week that Cohen struck a “deal” with the porn star on his behalf.
