REPORT: Trump Paid $130K For Silence Of Porn Actress Stormy Daniels After Consensual Adulterous Hook-Up

The Huffington Post reports:

A lawyer for President Donald Trump arranged a payment of $130,000 to a former adult film star in October 2016, according to a new report from The Wall Street Journal citing sources familiar with the matter.

Michael Cohen, a longtime representative of the Trump Organization, reportedly negotiated a nondisclosure agreement with a lawyer for the woman, Stephanie Clifford, over an encounter that allegedly occurred in 2006.

The deal would have been reached around the same time a leaked recording revealed the now-infamous lewd comments Trump made on the set of “Accss Hollywood” in 2005.

The consensual sexual encounter between Trump and Clifford reportedly took place after the pair met at a Lake Tahoe golf tournament in July of that year.

More from The Hill:

The Wall Street Journal reported that Michael Cohen, an attorney for the Trump Organization at the time and now Trump’s personal lawyer, arranged for Stephanie Clifford, known in the industry as Stormy Daniels, to receive $130,000 as part of a nondisclosure agreement one month before the 2016 presidential election.

Clifford has privately told sources interviewed by the Journal that she and Trump had a consensual sexual encounter in 2006, the year after he and Melania Trump were married. Clifford was 27 years old at the time of the alleged encounter in Lake Tahoe.
