One of President Donald Trump’s lawyers reportedly arranged a $130,000 payment to an adult film star before the 2016 elections to keep her quiet about an alleged affair the former reality show star had with the woman.
Michael Cohen arranged payment to Stephanie Clifford — also known as Stormy McDaniels in the adult film industry — in October 2016 after her lawyer negotiated a nondisclosure agreement with Cohen, according to the Wall Street Journal.
Clifford has privately maintained that the affair took place in 2006, a year after Trump married Melania. The payment was allegedly made in October of 2016, before the election in November.
Cohen did not address the $130,000 payment but said in a statement of the alleged sexual encounter that “President Trump once again vehemently denies any such occurrence as has Ms. Daniels.”
A White House official declined to comment to the Journal about the payment, but said that the allegations of the interaction between Trump and Clifford were “old, recycled reports, which were published and strongly denied prior to the election.”
Mmmkay, but what about the $130,000 payment?
The alleged affair with McDaniels was reportedly consensual.
