WSJ Trump lawyer arranged porn star payment for her silence in October 2016 Stormy Daniels
13 January, 2018, 04:38
The Wall Street Journal reported that Daniels' alleged encounter with Trump took place in July 2006 after a celebrity golf tournament in Lake Tahoe.
"These are old, recycled reports, which were published and strongly denied prior to the election", said a White House official that the "Journal" didn't name, in response to the allegation that Trump and Clifford had a sexual encounter.
It's worth noting that Jessica Drake, another adult-film star, alleged in October 2016 that Trump "kissed her and two other women", without consent, back in 2006.
Trump's surrogates have also adopted a "deny everything" approach when it comes to sexual misconduct allegations.
Clifford had been in talks to discuss Mr. Trump with ABC's "Good Morning America" in the weeks leading up to the election when Cohen arranged the payment to her, according to the Journal. Trump married Melania Trump in 2005.
He added, "You have attempted to perpetuate this false narrative for over a year; a narrative that has been consistently denied by all parties since at least 2011". The company said the payment was for Clifford to write fitness columns.
While Ms. Clifford declined to respond to requests for comment, Mr. Davidson acknowledged in a comment to the Journal that he "previously represented Ms. Daniels" but that "attorney-client privilege prohibits me from commenting on my clients' legal matters".

The payment appears to have been made in the final stretch of the campaign, around the same time that a recording of Trump making vulgar comments about women while filming a segment for "Access Hollywood" surfaced, in a report by The Washington Post roughly a month before the presidential election. When the AP interviewed former crew members of The Apprentice about Trump's alleged inappropriate behavior on set, then-campaign spokeswoman Hope Hicks said that these "outlandish, unsubstantiated, and totally false claims fabricated by publicity hungry, opportunistic, disgruntled former employees, have no merit whatsoever". He offered $10,000 and his private jet for a sexual encounter, according to Drake. The paper said it is not known whether Trump was aware of any agreement or payment. "But the fact of the matter is, these stories are not true".
Clifford would have addressed her relationship with Trump in connection with a report about the National Enquirer paying a former Playboy Playmate $150,000 for her story on an alleged affair she had with Trump. When the White House was asked if all the women who had accused Trump of sexual assault and harassment since 1980 were liars, Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said that yes, they were. The statement, to repeat, was emailed by Cohen.
