>> The President for the first time Wednesday waited on claims made by the porn star who says they had a sexual affair. Donald Trump had been conspicuously silent for months about Stormy Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford. She claims Trump´s personal attorney paid her to keep quiet about the affair.

And on Tuesday, Daniels' lawyer released this sketch of a man she says threatened her and her daughter several years ago telling her to forget about Donald Trump.>> My attorney and I are committed to making sure that everyone finds out the truth and the facts of what happened and I give my word that we will not rest until that happens.

>> That broke the dam. On Wednesday Trump wrote on Twitter, a sketch years later about a nonexistent man. A total con job, playing the Fake News Media for Fools. But they know it. Until Wednesday, he had not uttered a word or authored a tweet about the porn star she she came forward with the allegations.

Stormy Daniels' claims have grown from metaboly rumor into a front page legal battle. She sued the President and his lawyer to get out of a non-disclosure agreement barring her from discussing the alleged affair. His lawyer, Michael Cohen says he paid Daniels $130,000 out of his own pocket. Trump denies the affair and says he had no knowledge of the payment.

Cohen's legal troubles dovetailed last week, when FBI agents raided his New York home and offices as part of a criminal investigation that includes potential bank fraud. Investigators are also probing payments made to Daniels and another woman who alleges she had an affair with Trump. Daniels and her attorney have made a claim that documents seized by the government could be relevant to her lawsuit.
