'Unworthy of belief': Fox News legal analyst torches claim that Trump didn't know about Stormy payment

Fox News legal analyst Andrew Napolitano shut down attempts by "Fox & Friends" hosts on Thursday to spin Rudy Giuliani's bombshell admission that President Donald Trump personally reimbursed attorney Michael Cohen for paying off adult film star Stormy Daniels.

In particular, Napolitano took a hammer to the claim that Trump had no idea the money he was paying to Cohen was actually to reimburse him for silencing Daniels about her alleged affair with Trump.

"If Rudy wants the public to believe that Donald Trump reimbursed Michael Cohen $130,000 and didn't know what it was for, didn't know that it was going to silence Stormy Daniels, that is unworthy of belief," he said. "It is hard to believe that Donald Trump, a man who knows where every one of his nickels has gone!"

Host Ainsley Earhardt interjected and asked Napolitano if Cohen had simply told Trump to pay him and not ask questions about what it was for.

"It's possible, but that would be an ethical problem," Napolitano replied. "The good part is, if the money came from the president's personal funds, then there's no election issue... But it does create a problem in that the president has said he knows nothing about this."
