Pornstar paid $130,000 by lawyer after alleged sexual encounter with Donald Trump, WSJ reports

The Trump presidency continues to see sexual allegations that dogged him during his election campaign. A new Wall Street Journal report claims that Donald Trump instructed lawyer Michael Cohen to pay a porn star $130,000 before the 2016 election.

The alleged porn star, Stephanie Clifford, or as she’s known in the porn film industry, Stormy Daniels, reportedly told the Journal that she had a sexual encounter with Donald Trump at Lake Tahoe in 2006, which is also the year that he married Melania Knauss.

The White House has refused thus far to comment on what it characterizes as “old, recycled reports, which were published and strongly denied prior to the election.”

Trump lawyer Michael Cohen further condemned the report of the sexual encounter, which he vehemently denies occurred.

“This is now the second time that you are raising outlandish allegations against my client,” Cohen said. “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.”

In an added bit of irony, Clifford has also denied having sexual relations with Donald Trump, as shown in a written statement from Cohen that called hush money payments “completely false.” It was signed by her stage name “Stormy Daniels.”

Stormy Daniels protected her official Twitter account after the Wall  Street Journal report. Interestingly, Daniels made waves in 2010 when she announced she was becoming a Republican and purportedly toyed with the idea of running a campaign against Senator David Vitter.

Twitter as a whole, however, had opinions.

The $130,000 payment part, however, is new. Whether or not the sexual encounter actually occurred, however, is an entirely separate matter.
