Democrat D.A. Alvin Bragg alleges Trump paid porn performer to keep quiet about an alleged affair.

However, in 2018, Michael Cohen said he himself paid Stormy Daniels and not Trump:
[Stormy Daniels’ real name is Stephanie Clifford]

Letter from: Stephen M. Ryan (then Michael Cohen’s attorney)
Letter to: Federal Election Commission
Date: February 8, 2018

I am writing on behalf of my client, Michael D. Cohen, …

In a private transaction in 2016, before the U.S. presidential election, Mr. Cohen used his own personal funds to facilitate a payment of $130,000 to Ms. Stephanie Clifford [a.ka. Stormy Daniels]. Neither the Trump Organization nor the Trump campaign was a party to the transaction with Ms. Clifford, and neither reimbursed Mr. Cohen for the payment directly or indirectly.

Contrary to the allegations in the complaint, which are entirely speculative, neither Mr. Cohen nor Essential Consultants LLC made any in-kind contributions to Donald J. Trump for President, Inc., or any other presidential campaign committee. Mr. Cohen has not been a government employee during any of the relevant time period. The payment in question does not constitute a campaign contribution or expenditure and, therefore, the FEC lacks jurisdiction over this matter. The complainants have not and cannot present any evidence to the contrary. Accordingly, the complaint should be dismissed.
