“A series of tweets undercut the idea that the president’s personal lawyer couldn’t discuss the hush money arrangement because he couldn’t get in touch with him.”
From the Daily Beast:
President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen was in communication with the then-presidential candidate the day Cohen wired hush money to Stormy Daniels, according to previously unreported tweets.
Those tweets cast doubt on a claim that has been promulgated to distance Trump from the payments to the adult film star, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford. That claim, which was made anonymously to The Wall Street Journal, is that Cohen “missed two deadlines earlier that month to make the $130,000 payment to Ms. Clifford because he couldn’t reach Mr. Trump in the hectic final days of the presidential campaign.”
In fact, according to Cohen’s own tweets, he was in contact with Trump on the very day the hush-money deal was signed and finalized.
