President Trump's lawyer complained to friends following the 2016 election that he had not been reimbursed for his payment to adult film star Stormy Daniels, The Wall Street Journal reported Monday.

Michael Cohen paid Daniels, whose legal name is Stephanie Clifford, $130,000 as part of a nondisclosure agreement that ensured she would not speak about an alleged 2006 affair with Trump.

Cohen last month acknowledged that he made the payment, and denied it violated any campaign finance laws.

The Wall Street Journal reported that Cohen was working to secure a deal with Clifford's representatives in October 2016, but was unable to track down Trump. As a result, he used his own funds to wire money to Clifford's lawyer.

Stormy Daniels' lawyer: WH suggestion Trump knew nothing of settlement 'absurd'

  Stormy Daniels' lawyer: WH suggestion Trump knew nothing of settlement 'absurd' The attorney representing the porn star who is suing President Donald Trump says the White House's suggestion that the President knew nothing about a payment made to keep her quiet is "patently absurd.""The idea that somehow President Trump didn't know anything about this and that Attorney Cohen was just running off and doing what he thought was best without any consultation with President Trump, it is patently absurd," Michael Avenatti, the attorney for Stephanie Clifford, told CNN's Anderson Cooper on Wednesday night.

Cohen's bank later flagged the wire transaction as suspicious and reported it to the Treasury Department, The Wall Street Journal reported.

Neither Cohen's bank nor Clifford's lawyer's bank commented to The Wall Street Journal.

Clifford reportedly threatened to cancel the nondisclosure agreement just days before the 2016 election.

A manager for Daniels said last month that she now believes that Cohen's comments about the payment have broken the nondisclosure agreement, leaving her free to talk about the affair.

Stormy Daniels’s mother hopes alleged affair doesn’t hurt Trump .
The mother of adult-film actress Stormy Daniels says that she hopes the scandal surrounding her daughter's alleged affair with President Trump doesn't take a toll on the real estate mogul."If Mr. Trump runs four more times, I would vote for him every time," Sheila Gregory, 64, told The Dallas M orning News."I like him. I like the way he handles things. It's time this country is put back where it belongs - taking care of the people here instead of the people who don't belong here.
