Trump paid porn star $130K to keep quiet about affair

One of President Donald Trump’s lawyers allegedly paid an adult film star a settlement to keep her from going public with an affair she had with the real estate mogul the year after he married Melania Trump.

As the Wall Street Journal reported, Trump’s longtime attorney Michael Cohen paid actress Stephanie Clifford, whose stage name was Stormy Daniels, a sum of $130,000 in October 2016.

According to the report, Clifford “privately alleged the encounter with Mr. Trump took place after they met at a July 2006 celebrity golf tournament in Lake Tahoe,” sources confirmed to the Journal.
