  • Trump Attorney Arranged $130K Hush Agreement With Porn Star

Donald Trump's lawyer paid hush money to an ex-porn star a month before the 2016 election, according to a new report.

The Wall Street Journal reported on Friday that longtime Trump Organization attorney Michael Cohen oversaw the payment in the final days of the 2016 presidential election.

But the weekend was not a total loss because Trump struck up an acquaintance, a friendship or possibly more with Clifford, a popular adult film actress who had starred in scores of X-rated features.

The alleged consensual sexual encounter between Trump and Clifford is said to have taken place after the pair met at a Lake Tahoe golf tournament in July of that year. Apparently, she and Trump hooked up in 2006, one year after Donald married Melania.

Similarly, the White House blasted in a statement "old, recycled reports, which were published and strongly denied prior to the election".

Lewandowski argued that "factual errors" have been made "on many occasions" by outlets covering Trump, and reiterated that "Stormy" is on the record denying she received any payment from Cohen.

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

Clifford said in a January 10 statement, which she signed with her stage name, that neither the affair nor the payoff took place. In fact, Clifford confided to friends that she engaged in a sexual affair with Trump, whom she claimed had promised to help her get cast on "The Apprentice" or another TV show.

"President Trump once again vehemently denies any such occurrence as has Ms. Daniels".

Daniels did not respond to the Journal's requests for comment, while her lawyer told the Journal that attorney-client privilege precluded him from discussing the matter.

None of the lawmakers knew Carson, and Trump found that surprising, the attendees said.

Michael Mosny, who also works in the adult film industry and who later became Clifford's second husband, told the Smoking Gun that she had dinner with Trump one night with Roethlisberger.

In a meeting last fall, the president apparently said that a female intelligence expert should be assisting the U.S.in its negotiations with North Korea purely because of her Korean heritage, NBC News reported.

The same month the deal was cut, the Washington Post published the infamous "Access Hollywood" video, in which Trump boasts about groping women, saying he could "grab them by the p-y".
