"The 60 MINUTES segment will include an examination of the potential legal and political ramifications of the $130,000 payment that Mr. Trump’s attorney Michael Cohen says he made to Daniels using his own funds," the announcement continues. "Daniels accepted the money in return for signing a confidentiality agreement." 
 
Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, is locked in a legal battle with Trump over a $130,000 payment she received weeks before the 2016 election. Daniels says the payment was part of a nondisclosure agreement regarding an affair she says she had with Trump a decade earlier. Daniels and her lawyer argue the document is not valid because Trump never signed it. 

The White House denies that claim.
  
The interview was conducted earlier this month. 
 
Cooper, a "60 Minutes" correspondent, is also an anchor on CNN.
