Adult Film Star Allegedly Received $130K In Hush Money From Trump

The Wall Street Journal reported that Trump lawyer Michael Cohen paid $130,000 to Stephanie Clifford, stage name Stormy Daniels, before the 2016 U.S. elections.

Trump Organization lawyer Michael Cohen authorized the payment in October 2016 to Stephanie Clifford - a.k.a.

According to the paper, Clifford said "privately" the encounter with Trump took place during a July 2006 celebrity golf tournament in Lake Tahoe, a year after Trump married his wife Melania.

Cohen also showed the journal an email, apparently signed by "Stormy Daniels", that reportedly read: "Rumors that I have received hush money from Donald Trump are completely false".

This is seemingly in reference to an August 2016 report from the WSJ that alleged that Daniels was in talks with ABC's "Good Morning America" program to discuss her history with then-nominee Trump.

"Nothing about Trump or Stormy Daniels surprises me", said Jay Hines, a former neighbor of Clifford. He didn't address the $130,000 payment.

The Wall Street Journal's report was based on interviews with "people familiar with the matter" and did not claim to have seen any physical proof of the agreement.

The White House has strenuously denied rumours the President's team arranged payment to adult actress "Stormy Daniels" a month before the 2016 election.

Weisberg said that his conversations with the actress were on the record but that he was not prepared to write the story without her consent. Clifford has previously denied an alleged relationship with Trump.

Cohen now serves as the president's personal attorney.

The Daily Beast discovered that a second adult film actor, who goes by the name of Alana Evans, was invited up to Trump's hotel room during the alleged encounter with Daniels back in 2006.

Clifford, who has featured in around 150 films, including a cameo in mainstream Hollywood comedy The 40-Year-Old Virgin, declined to comment.

Trump has denied all inappropriate seuxal conduct with women.

Cohen also released a statement from Clifford to the Wall Street Journal. Evans, who was Daniels' neighbor and close friend at the time of the event, had run into Daniels at the hotel where the tournament was being hosted and was told by Daniels that she had met Trump and was planning on meeting him later that night.
