Porn star was paid $130K to keep quiet about relationship with Trump: Report

Before the 2016 election, a porn star was paid $130,000 by a lawyer for the Donald Trump to not talk about the sexual relationship with him, according to a report in the Wall Street Journal.

 

As per the journal, the lawyer Michael Cohen allegedly paid Stephanie Clifford to remain silent about an encounter at Lake Tahoe, California, in 2006. It added that the payment was made to a client-trust account at City National Bank in Los Angeles.

 

 

Cohen said to The Post that, “These rumors have circulated time and again since 2011. President Trump once again vehemently denies any such occurrence, as has Ms. Daniels.”

 

The lawyer also issued a statement and it reads, “Rumors that I have received hush money from Donald Trump are completely false. If indeed I did have a relationship with Donald Trump, trust me, you wouldn’t be reading about it in the news, you would be reading about it in my book.”

 

A White House official said “these are old, recycled reports, which were published and strongly denied prior to the election.” The official did not specifically respond to the allegation of a payoff to Clifford.
