Trump Lawyer Allegedly Paid Porn Star $130,000 in Hush Money to Keep Affair With President Under Wraps

By Denis Slattery, New York Daily News

13 January 18

 

former porn star was paid $130,000 by President Trump’s personal lawyer a month before the 2016 election — part of an agreement to keep her quiet about an extramarital affair she had with the President, according to a report Friday.

Attorney Michael Cohen arranged the payment to X-rated actress Stephanie Clifford after her lawyer negotiated a nondisclosure agreement, The Wall Street Journal reported.

Clifford, who made dozens of dirty movies under the name Stormy Daniels, told friends the encounter with Trump took place after they met at a July 2006 celebrity golf tournament in Lake Tahoe, people familiar with the matter told the newspaper.

Another porn star, Alana Evans, told the Daily Beast that Clifford invited her to tag along. “I ended up with Donald in his hotel room,” Clifford later told Evans. “Picture him chasing me around his hotel room in his tighty-whities.’”

“I was like, ‘Oh, I really didn’t need to hear that!’” Evans told the website.

Trump has denied several allegations of sexual misconduct in the past, and spokeswoman Hope Hicks said in 2016 that it was “absolutely, unequivocally” untrue that Clifford had a relationship with Trump.

Clifford, 27 at the time of the alleged consensual encounter, has appeared in films including “On Golden Blonde,” “Breast Side Story” and “Good Will Humping.”

“These are old, recycled reports, which were published and strongly denied prior to the election,” a White House official told the Journal on Friday.

Neither Clifford nor her lawyer returned requests for comment from the Daily News.

Cohen, a longtime Trump Organization lawyer, denied anything took place between the President and Clifford and sent a two-paragraph statement by email addressed “TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN” and signed by “Stormy Daniels” denying that she had a “sexual and/or romantic affair” with Trump.

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

The report said Clifford, now 38, had complained after signing the agreement that the payment wasn’t coming quickly enough and threatened to can the deal and break her silence.

In 2016, the Journal reported that Clifford was set to appear on ABC’s “Good Morning America” to discuss her relationship with Trump in the wake of the paper’s story alleging the National Enquirer had paid a former Playboy centerfold $150,000 to keep quiet about her affair with Trump.

The Daily Beast reported it was in talks with Clifford to tell her story, but she abruptly backed out just five days before the election. The site said it had three sources, including Evans, who told them Trump and Clifford had been involved. 

The President has denied cheating on his third wife, First Lady Melania Trump, whom he married in 2005. She gave birth to their son, Barron, just months before the alleged tryst.

The alleged agreement with Clifford came around the same time that a recording of Trump bragging about grabbing women by their genitals was leaked.

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

“I did not sign (a nondisclosure agreement), nor have I received any money for coming forward,” Drake told the Journal. “I spoke out because it was the right thing to do.”

Nearly two dozen women have come forward with accusations of sexual assault against Trump.

The women include former adult-film stars, a contestant on “The Apprentice” and several journalists.

The White House has maintained that the allegations are all false.

Trump’s public affair with actress Marla Maples brought about the end of his first marriage to Ivana Trump in 1990.

A note of caution regarding our comment sections:

For months a stream of media reports have warned of coordinated propaganda efforts targeting political websites based in the U.S., particularly in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.

We too were alarmed at the patterns we were, and still are, seeing. It is clear that the provocateurs are far more savvy, disciplined, and purposeful than anything we have ever experienced before.

It is also clear that we still have elements of the same activity in our article discussion forums at this time.

We have hosted and encouraged reader expression since the turn of the century. The comments of our readers are the most vibrant, best-used interactive feature at Reader Supported News. Accordingly, we are strongly resistant to interrupting those services.

It is, however, important to note that in all likelihood hardened operatives are attempting to shape the dialog our community seeks to engage in.

Adapt and overcome.

Did he get the blow job everyone has been hoping for as the necessary and sufficient cause for impeachment?

It is not possible to tell the source of this story. It has been reported that David Brock, formerly of Arkansas Project which published similar stories about Bill Clinton and now a colleague of Hillary Clinton, has been ginning up such stories. I don't know. I've seen the rumors. The first blow job impeachment did not work. Maybe the second one will.

This probably isn't illegal, so Mueller is unlikely to go after it. But it will cause some problems for him at home, that is, if him marriage is not a complete sham like everything else about him. Mueller has a lot of actual crimes to pursue, unlike Starr.

Quoting Rodion Raskolnikov:

Did you read the article?!?! It NAMES one of the sources--Alana Evans--plus names of sources of incidents of sexual harassment. This is not simply a case of consensual oral sex but a longstanding pattern of sexual assault, harassment and deceipt.

# Rodion Raskolnikov is correct that oral sex (and - thinking of JFK - infidelity itself) does not work as effective grounds for impeachment.

I'd suggest that those pushing the porn star theme are trying to detach the "evangelicals" from Trump's base and help insure his non-electabilit y in 2020.

This could work.
