Trump’s lawyer funneled $130,000 to ex-porn star just before 2016 election to buy her silence on claims she had sexual encounter with now president
Donald Trump’s lawyer reportedly paid off an ex-porn star a month prior to the election who allegedly had a sexual encounter with the billionaire a decade before he was president, a report on Friday revealed.
The Wall Street Journal says that Trump’s personal attorney, Michael Cohen, arranged for Stephanie Clifford, whose stage name was Stormy Daniels, to be paid $130,000 in October of 2016 so that she would keep quiet.
Cohen just sent me his statement about WSJ report. Says Trump denies alleged encounter. Doesn’t address payments, “These rumors have circulated time and again since 2011. President Trump once again vehemently denies any such occurrence as has Ms.Daniels.” https://t.co/47s7igo4Ii
