Trump Lawyer Gave Porn Star $130k Payment To Keep Quiet About Sexual Encounter With Trump: Report




President Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen reportedly arranged a six-figure payment to porn star Stormy Daniels one month before the 2016 presidential election in exchange for her silence about a sexual encounter she had with Trump in 2006, just one year after he and Melania were married, reports The Wall Street Journal.

The Trump Organization attorney arranged for Stephanie Clifford to receive $130,000 as part of a nondisclosure agreement a month before the 2016 election.

Clifford has privately alleged to sources interviewed by the Journal that she and Trump had a consensual sexual encounter in Lake Tahoe when she was 27 years old.



A White House official declined to comment to the Wall Street Journal about the payment, but called the allegations “old, recycled reports, which were published and strongly denied prior to the election.”

Cohen told the Journal in a statement that Trump “once again vehemently denies” the encounter.

“This is now the second time that you are raising outlandish allegations against my client,” Cohen said in the statement. “You have attempted to perpetuate this false narrative for over a year; a narrative that has been consistently denied by all parties since at least 2011.”
