CNN host Chris Cuomo said Thursday that President Donald Trump is unlikely to mirror Bill Clinton and "comply with a subpoena" due to the White House's "problems with the truth," failing to mention that Clinton was impeached for lying to a grand jury.
The subject on CNN's "New Day" was adult film actress Stephanie Clifford—also known as "Stormy Daniels"—and how she received a $130,000 payment from Trump's lawyer Michael Cohen before the 2016 election. She filed a lawsuit in California this week asking to nullify a non-disclosure agreement preventing her from discussing the alleged affair she had with Trump before he was president, saying Trump did not sign it.
Cuomo noted before introducing a clip of White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders that "lying is troubling for a presidency." Sanders told reporters that Trump was not aware of Cohen's payment, but she said Trump already won an arbitration case against Clifford, which Clifford's lawyers called "ludicrous."
