Cohen says Trump knew hush-money payments to Stormy Daniels, Karen McDougal were wrong

Saturday 12:41 GMT

President Trump’s former personal attorney Michael Cohen said the then-candidate knew it was wrong to make hush-money payments to porn star Stormy Daniels and Playboy model Karen McDougal in the weeks leading up to the election.

When asked on ABC News if Trump knew it was wrong to make the payments, Cohen replied, “Of course,” and added that the purpose was to “help [Trump] and his campaign.” Cohen's sentencing came as part of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York’s criminal investigation into Cohen, as well as Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe with which Cohen cooperated.
