President Trump has always denied knowledge of hush money payments to women who claim they had intimate encounters with him before he was elected president.
Federal prosecutors in New York say they have evidence that Trump knowingly participated in payments made to two loose women before his presidency.
The Wall Street Journal cites unidentified sources who say Trump "intervened to suppress stories" about his extramarital affairs with 2 women.
The sources say Trump coordinated the payments through American Media Inc.'s chief executive David Pecker. AMI publishes the National Enquirer tabloid.
Pecker resigned from his position as head of the National Enquirer after the feds scrutinized his role in the hush money payments.
The women who received payments include adult film star and stripper Stormy Daniels and former Playboy Playmate Karen McDougal, who claimed she had a nearly yearlong affair with Trump.
The National Enquirer reportedly paid McDougal for her story but the story was never published.
Earlier this year, Trump's former consigliere Michael Cohen plead guilty to campaign finance violations, income tax evasion, bank fraud and influencing the election by making the hush money payments.
So far, President Trump remains unscathed and unbothered.
Cohen is currently awaiting sentencing.
