White House: President Trump didn't know about payment to porn star

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said Wednesday she wasn't aware that President Donald Trump knew of a payment made by his personal lawyer to the porn actress Stormy Daniels in October 2016.

And she said she didn't know whether Trump had spoken to his lawyer, Michael Cohen, over the past week.

Answering questions from CNN's Jeff Zeleny, Sanders said the President has denied having a sexual relationship with Daniels.

"The President has addressed these directly and made very well clear that none of these allegations are true. It has already been won in arbitration. Anything in addition to that I would refer you to the President's outside counsel," Sanders said.
