Trump lawyer arranged porn star payment for her silence in October 2016

Trump lawyer arranged hush money payment to porn star - report

According to the report, Michael Cohen, an attorney for Trump who served for years as a lawyer for the Trump Organization and who described himself as the "fix-it guy" for Trump in an interview last year, arranged the payment for the porn star as part of a nondisclosure agreement that was completed a month before the 2016 elections.

Clifford alleged that she had an encounter with Trump after they met at a July 2006 celebrity golf tournament in Lake Tahoe. Trump married Melania Trump in 2005.

"These are old, recycled reports, which were published and strongly denied prior to the election", said a White House official that the "Journal" didn't name, in response to the allegation that Trump and Clifford had a sexual encounter.

The woman, who was identified by the Journal as Ms. Stephanie Clifford, reportedly agreed to remain silent and refrain from publicly discussing her sexual encounter with Trump after her attorney discussed the agreement with Mr. Cohen.

Trump has denied all allegations of inappropriate sexual conduct and apologized at the time for his remarks on the "Access Hollywood" tape, calling them "locker-room banter".

He added, "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".

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.

"Rumors that I have received hush money from Donald Trump are completely false", the statement said.

The White House has not yet released an official statement regarding the alleged payment. The company said the payment was for Clifford to write fitness columns.

Just days before the 2016 election, the Journal published a story stating that the National Enquirer — run by David Pecker, a fervid supporter of Trump — had paid $150,000 to silence former Playboy Playmate Karen McDougal about a sexual relationship she allegedly had with Trump a decade ago.

The Trump campaign denied any affair and American Media Inc, which owns the Enquirer, said: "AMI has not paid people to kill damaging stories about Mr Trump". In its reporting, the Smoking Gun found that Clifford herself tried to shop stories to publications about her relationship with Trump.

The latest immigration controversy comes a week before the current government spending authorization is due to expire on January 19. Cohen said he discussed the project with Trump three times.

Another adult-film star, Jessica Drake, later alleged in an October 2016 news conference that Trump kissed her and two other women without permission in a hotel suite after the same 2006 golf event.

In a statement provided by Cohen from Daniels, she also calls the article "absolutely false".
