Laura Cohen is the longtime wife of President Donald Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen –and though that is statement enough to be talked about, Cohen’s own actions have landed him in the eye of the media.
Reports say Michael Cohen paid money out of his own pocket to ****ographic film star Stormy Daniels, a month before the 2016 presidential election. Daniels whose real name is Stephanie Clifford –has long stated she had an affair with Trump.
Cohen apparently, tired of waiting for his money to be reimbursed, has opened up about it. In a statement earlier this week he spills the beans saying:
“Neither the Trump Organization nor the Trump campaign was a party to the transaction with Ms. Clifford, and neither reimbursed me for the payment, either directly or indirectly,”
Cohen revealed he went on and paid $130k to Daniels and told the Federal Election Commission “The payment to Ms. Clifford was lawful, and was not a campaign contribution or a campaign expenditure by anyone,”
Is unclear the exact reason he paid Daniels such a crazy amount on his own will and without reimbursement. Is believed however the payment was made to silence Daniels in the weeks before the election, as The Wall Street Journal reported last month.
Cohen’s wife, Laura Cohen is probably going livid after hearing he paid Daniels out of his own pocket. The couple are the proud parents of one daughter, Samantha Blake Cohen and one son, Jake.
According to Newsweek, Michael Cohen’s wife is from Ukraine and was born Laura Shusterman, the couple amassed their fortune through the world of New York City taxicab medallions.
He has a law degree from Thomas M. Cooley Law School in Michigan. Cohen served in the past as the executive vice-president of the Trump Organization and special counsel to Trump. He and his wife own a number of Trump-branded apartments.
Laura’s hubby was previously on front pages over the Trump-Russia investigation. It was revealed he emailed with the Kremlin about building a Trump Tower in Moscow.
