Cohen Says He Was Reimbursed For Hush Payment. Here’s The Check, Signed By Trump

As part of his opening testimony before the House Oversight Committee on Wednesday, President Trump’s former lawyer Michael Cohen intends to share evidence that Trump personally reimbursed him for a hush payment he made during the campaign to porn actress Stormy Daniels to keep her quiet about an alleged affair with Trump.

Cohen will claim that he was paid $35,000 monthly as part of the reimbursement for the hush payment, which could be a violation of campaign finance rules. At least one of those checks, obtained by CNN, is emblazoned with Trump’s distinct signature.
