Sarah Sanders struggles to deny White House chaos as reporters grill her over ousted advisors

Sarah Sanders

The White House and the Trump Organization did not respond to requests for comment on Friday.

Sanders did not give details of the trip, confirming only that Trump "will be headed to California next week". Cohen used aliases for Trump and Clifford throughout the document. She says she began an "intimate relationship" with him years before his political aspirations took shape and more than a year into his marriage to now-first lady Melania Trump.

"Has anyone offered, has anyone, including Larry Flint, but I want to ask this in universal sense, has anyone offered to pony up the million dollars to protect her and say "here, I'm good for it, go tell your story"?"

Cohen has said he paid the porn actress $130,000 out of his own pocket as part of the agreement. "I am denying it because it never happened".

Trump's personal lawyer Michael Cohen reportedly complained that he wasn't reimbursed by Trump for the $130,000 payment to adult-film star Stormy Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford.

"POTUS is very unhappy", the source said.

She said in that field she was "more in demand" but also was uncertain how she was going to be affected long-term.

In complaints filed with the Justice Department and Federal Election Commission, the nonpartisan ethics group Common Cause alleged that the hush money was meant to influence the 2016 election and thus needed to be disclosed as a campaign donation. In it, Trump is caught using crude language about women and describing how he would hit on them.

Daniels' lawyer is fighting back by declaring he can prove President Trump knew that Cohen paid hush money to Daniels. Clifford signed the agreement on the allotted line for "PP" on October 28, 2016.

And even if the absence of a signature by the president isn't enough to void the contract, Clifford argues that Cohen has violated the terms of the deal by making multiple statements to the media. She also has said they continued to have a years-long friendship afterward.
