Newsweek

A lawyer for President TrumpDonald John TrumpHouse Democrat slams Donald Trump Jr. for "serious case of amnesia" after testimony Skier Lindsey Vonn: I don't want to represent Trump at Olympics Poll: 4 in 10 Republicans think senior Trump advisers had improper dealings with Russia MORE reportedly arranged a six-figure payment to a former adult-film star to keep her from discussing a sexual encounter with Trump, according to a new report Friday.

Per The Wall Street Journal, Trump Organization attorney Michael Cohen arranged for Stephanie Clifford (AKA Stormy Daniels) to received $130,000 as part of a nondisclosure agreement she signed - one month before the 2016 election.

Trump met Stephanie Clifford, whose goes by the name Stormy Daniels in films, at a golf event in 2006 — a year after Trumps marriage to his wife, Melania.

The Journal cited an unnamed White House official as saying that the allegations were "old, recycled reports, which were published and strongly denied prior to the election".

Clifford claims the sexual encounter with Trump occurred in 2006 after a Lake Tahoe celebrity golf tournament.

He also hit out at the Wall Street Journal's "outlandish allegations" against Mr Trump and said the paper had been trying to "perpetuate" a "false narrative". The Journal said the payment was made to a client-trust account at City National Bank in Los Angeles.


Trump's attorney in the affair, Mr. Cohen, told the Journal that "President Trump once again vehemently denies any such occurrence as has Ms. Daniels". In its reporting, the Smoking Gun found that Clifford herself tried to shop stories to publications about her relationship with Trump.

Clifford wrote in the letter that when she met Trump, he was "gracious, professional and a complete gentleman to me and EVERYONE in my presence".

This report comes on the heels of another report by the Journal in which it was claimed that the 38-year-old ex-porn star negotiated the possibility of appearing as a guest in ABC's "Good Morning America" two years ago to talk about Trump. "But the fact of the matter is, these stories are not true".

On Friday, the Journal reported that the payment was made through Clifford's lawyer. Later in 2009 she was arrested for domestic violence. She was 30 at the time and listed an address on Wyoming Avenue in South Tampa.

Just two years later, in 2011, the adult-film star obtained a temporary restraining order against Mosny, claiming he attacked her and tried to steal her auto.

Numerous women have accused Mr Trump of unwanted sexual advances, allegations Mr Trump has consistently rejected as false.
