Report: Trump team paid porn star $130k to keep quiet about extramarital affair

Source: New York Post

“A lawyer for Donald Trump arranged to fork over $130,000 in hush money to an ex-porn star a month before the 2016 election to keep her quiet about an alleged hookup she had with the future president, a new report said Friday. Michael Cohen, a longtime lawyer for the Trump Organization, set up the payment to Stephanie Clifford — whose nom de smut was Stormy Daniels — after her lawyer negotiated a nondisclosure agreement, the Wall Street Journal reported Friday. … Cohen wouldn’t talk about the $130,000 payment but said in a statement that ‘President Trump once again vehemently denies any such occurrence as has Ms. Daniels.’ The president has repeatedly said that all of the more than a dozen women who’ve accused him of sexual misconduct or assault are liars.” (01/12/18)
