Trump Lawyer Reportedly Paid $130,000 To Keep Porn Star Silent
While WSJ wasn’t able to speak with Clifford, Cohen was kind enough to send over 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 the president.
“Rumors that I have received hush money from Donald Trump are completely false,” the statement said.
After the agreement, Clifford’s camp complained the payment wasn’t being made quickly enough and threatened to cancel the deal, some of the people familiar with the matter said.
Clifford first met Trump when she was 27, at the American Century Championship in 2006, held at Edgewood Tahoe golf course in Nevada. Another adult-film star, Jessica Drake, later alleged in an October 2016 news conference that Mr. Trump kissed her and two other women without permission in a hotel suite after the same 2006 golf event – allegations that the White House called "false and ridiculous."
Setting aside the question of whether the rumor is true or not, even if it is, would these allegations have the slightest impact on Trump’s popularity after, well, everything that has happened in the past year?
We doubt it. After all...
Shocked that someone with a framed Playboy cover in his office would liaise with adult movie stars, allegedly
