Trump Lawyer Paid Porn Star $130K for Her Silence

Posted January 15, 2018

Donald Trump's attorney reportedly arranged a $130,000 (£95,000) payment to a former porn star as part of a deal to silence her about an alleged sexual encounter with Mr Trump.

People familiar with the matter told the Journal that Cohen, the longtime head of the Trump Organization's legal department, worked out a nondisclosure agreement with Clifford's attorney to keep the matter quiet previous year.

Clifford did not comment directly to the Journal, and Clifford's lawyer declined to comment. Cohen also added that Trump "once again vehemently denies" the interaction, but stayed noticeably tightlipped about the $130K.

Cohen told the Journal that Trump and Clifford deny that the incident occurred and called the allegations "outlandish" and a "false narrative".

But he also suggested that farmers and ranchers are concerned about the status of health care, saying rural areas are facing unaffordable or simply unavailable health insurance policies.

The Journal previously reported that Clifford had been in talks with "Good Morning America" in the fall of 2016 about an appearance to discuss Trump, also citing people familiar with the matter.

A former Playboy model, Karen McDougal sold the exclusive rights to her story about an affair with Trump to American Media Inc around the same time, according to The Wall Street Journal. Earlier, porn star Jessica Drake had alleged that Trump had engaged in sexual misconduct with her during the celebrity golf tournament in 2006.

It was not confirmed whether the president was aware of an agreement with Ms. Clifford or payment that was provided to her.

Trump's lawyer has rubbished these reports and said that there was no affair between the US President and Daniels.

Trump also denied those allegations as well.

Trump, in a tape, during the presidential campaign was found to have said that woman allow men to sexually harass them if they are popular and powerful.

If published, the report would have come soon after the release of the "Access Hollywood" footage where Trump boasted about grabbing women by the genitals uninvited and pursuing married women.
