Falwell, who has become one of Trump's most outspoken evangelical supporters, approached Cohen in 2015 after someone obtained photos that would normally be kept "between husband and wife," Cohen said in a taped conversation reviewed by Reuters.
According to the report, Cohen later helped persuade Falwell to endorse Trump in the 2016 presidential election, just before the Iowa caucuses began.
The former "fixer," who reported to prison this week to serve a three-year sentence for financial crimes and lying to Congress, discussed the Falwell photo incident in a conversation with comedian Tom Arnold, who secretly taped the conversation, according to Reuters.
