President Donald Trump married his third wife, Melania Trump, in 2005. According to several sources, however, that was not an obstacle for the new POTUS to get in touch with adult entertainers.
The Wall Street Journal reported that Trump’s attorney, Michael Cohen, paid $130,000 to adult film actress Stephanie Clifford to remain quiet about her encounter with Trump. She and Trump met back in 2006 when they reunited in Las Vegas for a golf championship.
Clifford, also known as, Stormy Daniels, was one of the most popular pornography actresses at the time. The Journal cited a secret source suggesting that Cohen paid Clifford in October 2016 in exchange for her silence regarding a supposed affair with Trump.
“These are old, recycled reports, which were published and strongly denied prior to the election,” a White House official said. Cohen did not comment on the situation, but Clifford signed a statement that said, “Rumors that I have received hush money from Donald Trump are completely false.”
Another adult film actress, Jessica Drake, said that Trump offered her $10,000 for sex during the same golf tournament. Over 20 women have accused Trump of sexual harassment in the last two decades. Trump denied all accusations, and the White House said that all the women are lying.
The Journal reports that they fulfilled the payment through Clifford’s attorney, Keith Davidson, who declined to comment on the matter, only stating, “attorney-client privilege.”
