President Donald Trump’s lawyer reportedly paid a former porn star $130,000 to keep quiet about a consensual intimate encounter they had in 2006. Trump married his wife Melania Trump in 2005.
A report in Friday’s Wall Street Journal claims Trump’s personal attorney, Michael Cohen, arranged to pay Stephanie Clifford, aka Stormy Daniels, $130,000 in October 2016 — one month before the presidential election.
The Journal reports that Trump, 71, and Daniels, 38, met at a celebrity golf tournament in July of 2006. The porn star and the billionaire reportedly had an intimate encounter that was neither recorded nor witnessed by anyone.
When approached by a reporter for a comment about the $130K, Trump’s lawyer said President Trump “vehemently denies any such occurrence as has Ms. Daniels”.
The Journal reported that Daniels was “in talks” with Good Morning America when the $130,000 payment was abruptly made in secret.
The latest Trump scandal is trending high on Twitter.com, along with his alleged comment about impoverished immigrant countries.
Trump defeated Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election, despite a 2005 audio tape in which he was heard saying he could grab women by the pu–y because he was a big star.
