Kim Dong Chul has been in North Korean custody since before Trump was elected, the other two detainees were arrested last spring, after Trump’s inauguration and as tensions between Washington and Pyongyang were beginning to ramp up.

Michael Cohen is/was President Trump’s personal attorney. Prior to the election, Cohen paid Stormy Daniels (aka Ms. Clifford), a payment of $130,000 dollars. The payment was in exchange for Daniels remaining silent about an “affair” she had with President Trump and came just weeks before the 2016 election.

Cohen has admitted to the press he did pay her the money, “Out of his own pocket”, and President Trump had “no knowledge of the payment.”

On Wednesday, Rudy Giuliani was interviewed by Sean Hannity of Fox News, and said they didn’t break the law because President Trump paid the money back:

When I heard Cohen’s retainer of $35,000.00 when he was doing no work for the president I said that’s how he’s repaying that’s how he’s repaying it with a little profit and a little margin for paying taxes for Michael.

Last month, Michael Cohen’s office was raided pursuant to a FBI warrant.
