Trump lawyer arranged pre-election hush money for porn star

Adjust Comment Print

The Wall Street Journal has just published a report stating Donald Trump's attorney arranged for a payment of $130,000 to a former adult film star to keep silent about a sexual encounter she had with Trump before the election.

Lawyer Michael Cohen, who was a top lawyer at the Trump Organization for years and remains a personal attorney for Trump, negotiated the nondisclosure agreement in October 2016, a month before the 2016 election, the Journal reported.

Cuomo quizzed Lewandwoski about the report (feigning some ignorance over the porn star's name: "I think she goes by Stormy Daniels" - you know her name Chris...) and the Trump adviser dismissed the story outright.

She privately spoke about a consensual encounter she had with Trump in 2006 at a celebrity golf tournament in Lake Tahoe.

Trump married his wife Melania in 2005.

Cohen, the White House and Clifford have all denied that a steamy affair ever took place.

'If I did indeed have a relationship with Donald Trump, trust me, you wouldn't be reading about it in the news, ' Clifford said in the statement that Cohen provided to news outlets, 'you would be reading about it in my book'.

The Trump campaign denied any affair and American Media Inc, which owns the Enquirer, said: "AMI has not paid people to kill damaging stories about Mr Trump".

Williams' quarter also includes fourth-seeded Elina Svitolina and 13th-seeded Sloane Stephens, who won last year's U.S. As mentioned above, Djokovic has triumphed at the Australian Open more time than any other male players.

"Rumors that I have received hush money from Donald Trump are completely false", the statement said.

In the tumultuous last days of the presidential race, Clifford was reported to have been in discussions with Good Morning America to disclose an alleged affair with Trump. The statement, to repeat, was emailed by Cohen.

A White House official declined to comment on the Journal's report.

Daniels did not respond to the Journal's requests for comment, while her lawyer told the Journal that attorney-client privilege precluded him from discussing the matter.

Trump has denied all inappropriate seuxal conduct with women.

Michael Mosny, who also works in the adult film industry and who later became Clifford's second husband, told the Smoking Gun that she had dinner with Trump one night with Roethlisberger.

The same month, the infamous Access Hollywood tape emerged, in which Trump bragged about groping women. She reportedly chose not to appear on the show at that time without explanation.
