The Wall Street Journal has just published a report stating Donald Trump's attorney arranged for a payment of $130,000 to a former adult film star to keep silent about a sexual encounter she had with Trump before the election.

Trump's lawyer, Michael Cohen, strongly rebuked the allegations and said in a statement: "The President once again vehemently denies any such occurrence as has Ms Daniels". Cohen even produced a signed statement from "Stormy Daniels" indicating that she did not have any type of relationship with the future president and received no hush money.

Trump Organization lawyer Michael Cohen authorized the payment in October 2016 to Stephanie Clifford - a.k.a. When Daniels' lawyer, Keith Davidson, was asked to comment on the case, he refused to on the grounds of attorney-client privilege. Afterward, Trump met with Clifford and two other women in a hotel suite, where he kissed them, the Journal reported. Drake said Trump also repeatedly propositioned her, offering $10,000 and the use of his private jet for her to come to his suite. The payment allegedly came as the adult-film actress, Stephanie Clifford a.k.a.

Cohen also accused the Journal of perpetuating 'a false narrative for over a year'.

Rape, murder of 7-year-old girl spark outrage in Pakistan
The murder of an eight-year-old girl in Pakistan has been followed by outrage that police are not doing enough to find her killer. Reports say that a video has emerged of her walking hand-in-hand with a stranger and police are verifying the footage.

A White House official declined to comment on the Journal's report.

According to Evans, who was also in Stateline, Nevada while Trump and Daniels were there for the 2006 American Century Celebrity Golf Championship, her colleague told her all about meeting the star of The Apprentice. She goes on recalling, "Stormy said she met Donald Trump and then tells me about the golf tournament and how she's supposed to hang out with him later that night, and she invited me". The Journal reported at the time that the National Enquirer, which supports Trump, paid a former Playboy model $150,000 for a story about an affair with the future President, but the tabloid did not publish it. The paper said it is not known whether Trump was aware of any agreement or payment. Therefore, she turned down the offer and switched off her phone.

A second and third source - who both spoke to Daily Beast on the condition of anonymity - confirmed Evans' claims about Trump and Daniels' affair, which took place when Melania Trump was pregnant with his youngest son, Barron.
