Okay, let's set the scene.
First of all, In Touch featured a zesty interview with Auteur of Pornographic Film Studies Stormy Daniels back in 2011 wherein she recounted in full an amorous evening with now-President Donald Trump. Time being linear in nature, this 2006 encounter took place four months after now-First Lady Melania Trump gave birth to now-First Kid Barron Trump and included such sizzling-hot details as The Good Lady Daniels saying things like, “I actually don’t even know why I did it, but I do remember while we were having sex, I was like, ‘Please, don’t try to pay me.’”
Normal! Eventually, this modest request was rebuffed as in 2016 then-Candidate Trump's lawyer gave Goody Daniels the tidy and specific sum of $130,000 to maintain a dignified silence during the campaign. Though Trump himself would eventually admit to all kinds of extramarital impropriety and suffer zero consequences from any of it, Milady Daniels held up her end of the bargain - saying nothing about her affair that she hadn't already said in the previously mentioned 2011 In Touch interview - until the Wall Street Journal blew the lid of the $130,000 payout.
Well, now that lawyer, Michael Cohen, is assuring everyone that there was no violation of Federal Election Commission law because he just paid the porn star all that money out of his own pocket and for no reason. Problem is, now that Cohen is on the record as having paid off the porn star himself, he may have breached a non-disclosure agreement. So we're entering some sticky legal territory wherein the NDA Mrs. Daniels may or may not have signed about the affair that did or didn't happen may no longer apply since the other party has breached the contract.
