Trump reportedly paid adult film star not to speak out about alleged sexual encounter

Stormy Daniels

Michael Cohen, President Trump's longtime personal attorney, arranged a $130,000 payment to a leading porn star in return for her silence about an alleged sexual encounter with Mr. Trump, according to The Wall Street Journal. The payment was part of a deal that would prevent her from speaking publicly about an alleged sexual encounter between her and Trump.

According to the report, Cohen, who's been Trump's top lawyer at the Trump organization for almost a decade, arranged the deliver the cash to Stephanie Clifford - known in the adult industry as Stormy Daniels - in October 2016, after her lawyer negotiated the nondisclosure agreement with Cohen.

She privately spoke about a consensual encounter she had with Trump in 2006 at a celebrity golf tournament in Lake Tahoe. Donald and Melania Trump were married in 2005.

A White House official told the WSJ Friday: "These are old, recycled reports, which were published and strongly denied prior to the election".

Cohen's reference to previous allegations may include the Journal's report in the days before the election that Clifford meant to appear on "Good Morning America" to discuss the alleged affair.

Cohen called the allegations of an affair "outlandish" and "a false narrative".

Cohen also accused the Journal of perpetuating "a false narrative for over a year".

In response to the Clifford report, Trump's lawyer told The Wall Street Journal, "President Trump once again vehemently denies any such occurrence, as has Ms. Daniels".

Adult-film actress Stormy Daniels appears during an autograph signing for Wicked Pictures at the 2012 AVN Adult Entertainment Expo in Las Vegas on January 20, 2012.

The White House has not yet released an official statement regarding the alleged payment. Clifford says the encounter happened in 2006.

The payment, the Journal reports, was made through Clifford's attorney, Keith Davidson.

The Wall Street Journal had previously reported that Clifford was in talks with Good Morning America to talk about Trump just before the November 8, 2016 election. Cohen also added that Trump "once again vehemently denies" the interaction, but stayed noticeably tightlipped about the $130K. In a 2016 news conference, adult-film star Jessica Drake claimed that Trump kissed her and two other women without their consent at the same golf event that same year.

Earlier this week, Mr Cohen filed defamation lawsuits against the opposition research firm Fusion GPS and the news outlet BuzzFeed over a dossier, published by BuzzFeed, that laid out Mr Trump's potential ties to Russian Federation and included salacious claims about Mr Trump's sexual history.
