Reporter: "Mr. President, did you know about the $130,000 payment to Stormy Daniels?".
"It was reasonably understood Mr. Cohen meant to convey that Ms. Clifford is a liar, someone who should not be trusted, and that her claims about her relationship with Mr. Trump is "something [that] isn't true, '" Daniels" lawyer, Michael Avenatti, said in the lawsuit referring to Daniels' real name. "You'll have to ask Michael".
During a 60 Minutes interview a few weeks ago, Daniels said she felt coerced to sign the non-disclosure agreement about the sexual encounter. "As history teaches us, it is one thing to deceive the press and quite another to do so under oath".
An agitated Trump tried to move quickly on - "What else?" he asked after responding - but reporters in the press cabin continued their questioning, asking why Cohen made the payment.

"When she sat for that interview, it actually lasted over two hours in length, the actual interview", Michael Avenatti told NBC's "Megan Kelly Today" on Wednesday.
If Cohen made that payment from his own funds and without Trump's knowledge, it could be considered an illegal contribution to the Trump campaign.
"Our case just got that much better", he said.
Avenatti said they would oppose private arbitration, arguing it should be heard by the American public.
