In a letter to federal authorities in 2018, and obtained by DailyMail.com, Trump’s former personal lawyer Michael Cohen denied receiving reimbursement from Donald Trump or his organization for making hush money payments to porn star Stormy Daniels.
The letter was written on Cohen’s behalf by his attorney Stephen M. Ryan.
This contradicts his recent testimony in front of a grand jury and could complicate prosecutors’ efforts to charge Trump with criminal activity related to the payments.
According to Cohen, Trump instructed him to pay $130,000 to Stormy Daniels to prevent her from revealing their alleged affair just days before the 2016 presidential election.
The grand jury session originally scheduled for today has been postponed, but prosecutors have requested the jurors return on Thursday with the possibility of one more witness.
The 2018 letter also contradicts his previous sworn testimony to Congress.
This is a breaking news update.
