NEW YORK CITY - There are new revelations, in the scandal surrounding President Trump's alleged affair with an adult film actress.

NBC News has learned more about the alleged hush money payment made by the president's personal attorney.

On Friday a new twist in the tale of the porn star, the president and the payout.

With new information on where that $130,000 came from.

Stormy Daniels' lawyer describes it as hush money - to keep the adult film actress quiet about what he calls a sexual relationship with Donald Trump a decade ago.

"We believe that ultimately we're going to able to trace this back in one form or another, to a payment from the Trump organization or from a surrogate for Mr. Trump," said Michael Avenatti, a lawyer for Stormy Daniels.

But on Friday - the president's longtime lawyer, Michael Cohen, now says the money came from his own home equity line of credit.

Telling ABC News - "it was my money."

Cohen has acknowledged "facilitating" that $130,000 to Daniels, but hasn't said why he paid her.

And while Cohen has tried to distance this deal from the Trump organization a document obtained by NBC News and other correspondence shows he conducted business related to it on his work email, a "Trump-Org" address.

Cohen says he routinely used that email for personal business.

The White House has denied that the president had a relationship with Daniels and has said he did not know about the payment.

“I’ve addressed this extensively, I don't have anything else to add," said Sarah Huckabee Sanders, press secretary for President Trump.

Congressional Democrats – on Friday demanding answers from the president's legal team setting a deadline two weeks from Friday.
