Rupert Murdoch’s WSJ Reports Trump Paid Porn Star $130K Before Election To Keep Their Extramarital Affair SECRET

President Trump Holds Meetings With Officials At White House
One of racist President Donald Trump’s most trusted lawyers sent $130,000 in hush money to a porn star just weeks before the 2016 presidential election to keep her silent about an alleged 2006 sexual encounter she had with the then-Republican presidential nominee, The Wall Street Journal reported Friday. The Journal is owned by Trump friend Rupert Murdoch.

The newspaper reported that Michael Cohen, who served as the Trump Organization’s top attorney for about a decade, arranged for the payment to Stephanie Clifford, whose stage name is Stormy Daniels, in October 2016 after a negotiation between her lawyer and Cohen on a nondisclosure agreement, sources said.
The sexual encounter allegedly happened between Trump and Clifford at a July 2006 celebrity golf tournament in Lake Tahoe.
Trump married his third wife, Melania Trump, in 2005.
Though Trump faced more than a dozen allegations of sexual misconduct, dating back decades, during the campaign, The Journal reported that alleged encounter between Trump and Clifford was consensual.
“These are old, recycled reports, which were published and strongly denied prior to the election,” a White House official told The Journal of the alleged encounter, though they did not answer questions about the $130,000. Cohen released a statement to The Journal as well, saying that Trump “once again vehemently denies any such occurrence as has Ms. Daniels.”
He did not address the payment as well.
“This is now the second time that you are raising outlandish allegations against my client,” Cohen 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.”
“Rumors that I have received hush money from Donald Trump are completely false,” the statement said.
Clifford did not respond to The Journal, which added that Clifford’s “camp complained the payment wasn’t being made quickly enough and threatened to cancel the deal,” according to people familiar with the ordeal.
