CNN timeline on Stormy Daniel’s hush-money reveals the 'alarming number of lies’ Trump told

CNN's Wolf Blitzer on Wednesday provided a helpful timeline detailing "the alarming number of lies voters were led to believe by the president and those closest to him" in the porn star hush-money scheme Trump's former fixer Michael Cohen says was directed by the president himself.


Wolf dove deep into the scandal, which erupted on January 12th, 2018 when the Wall Street Journal reported on the $130,000 payment Cohen made to porn star Stormy Daniels a month before the 2016 election, to prevent her from speaking out about her alleged affair with then-candidate Donald Trump. The timeline, rich with footage and quotes, shows how Cohen and Trump, as well as Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani told the public multiple falsehoods, misstatements, and outright lies in their efforts to protect the president.

Wolf noted that, despite Cohen's sworn testimony and guilty plea, the president continues to deny these affairs.
