Trump Lawyer Arranged $130K Payment for Adult Star's Silence

Trump Lawyer Arranged $130K Payment for Adult Star's Silence

Apparently, Miz Clifford alleged to sources vetted by the WSJ that she and POTUS had a sexual encounter in 2006, a year after the businessman Wednesday Melania Trump.

Cohen's reference to previous allegations may include the Journal's report in the days before the election that Clifford meant to appear on "Good Morning America" to discuss the alleged affair.

Cohen, Trump's lawyer who, according to the Journal, arranged the payment, denied the report in a statement on Friday to BuzzFeed News.

Michael Cohen, Trump's personal attorney, said the President "vehemently denies" the encounter, but did not address the alleged payment in a statement to CNN.

In October 2016, The Smoking Gun reported on Trump's alleged relationship with Clifford, including a photo of the two together posted on Clifford's MySpace page.

"These are old, recycled reports, which were published and strongly denied prior to the election", a White House official said in response. "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".

Both Michael Cohen and Stormy Daniels are denying reports of a "hush money" payoff.

A separate statement, which Cohen provided and said was signed by Stormy Daniels, said the adult film star's relationship with Trump did not go further than several public appearances.

Clifford didn't respond to multiple emails seeking comment. The paper said it is not known whether Trump was aware of any agreement or payment.

Davidson declined to comment on the story, citing "attorney-client privilege".

Clifford, 38, has appeared in nearly 150 pornographic films as well as Steve Carell's 2005 film The 40-Year-Old Virgin and Seth Rogen's Knocked Up in 2007.

Earlier this week, Mr Cohen filed defamation lawsuits against the opposition research firm Fusion GPS and the news outlet BuzzFeed over a dossier, published by BuzzFeed, that laid out Mr Trump's potential ties to Russian Federation and included salacious claims about Mr Trump's sexual history. "I am the fix-it guy", he said in an interview in January 2017 before Trump's inauguration.

Last year, the WSJ broke the story that the company that owns the National Enquirer agreed to pay $150,000 to a former Playboy model, Karen McDougal, three months before the election for her story about an alleged affair she says happened a decade earlier with Trump, which the supermarket tabloid newspaper then shelved.

"Rumors that I have received hush money from Donald Trump are completely false", the letter read. "I spoke out because it was the right thing to do". When the White House was asked if all the women who had accused Trump of sexual assault and harassment since 1980 were liars, Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said that yes, they were.
