Trump lawyer brokered $130000 payment to porn star

Donald Trump's lawyer arranged a six-figure payment to a former adult-film star one month before the 2016 election to keep her quiet about an alleged sexual encounter with Trump a decade ago.

According to The Journal, Clifford has privately alleged the encounter took place after the two met at a July 2006 celebrity golf tournament in Lake Tahoe. The president and first lady Melania Trump got married the year before. In this matter, there is no allegation of a non-consensual interaction.

"These are old, recycled reports, which were published and strongly denied prior to the election". It isn't known whether Trump was aware of any agreement or payment involving her.

In response to the Clifford report, Trump's lawyer told The Wall Street Journal, "President Trump once again vehemently denies any such occurrence, as has Ms. Daniels".

Cohen called the allegations of an affair "outlandish" and "a false narrative". "She didn't respond to requests for comment", the Wall Street Journal reported. "I am stating with complete clarity that this is absolutely false", she wrote.

He also said China and Russian Federation , which have not been invited, will be briefed on the discussions after the meeting. The United States and Canada will host a meeting in Vancouver on Tuesday on the nuclear standoff with North Korea .

"These rumors have circulated time and again since 2011", Cohen said.

"Rumors that I have received hush money from Donald Trump are completely false", the statement said.

After the agreement, Clifford's camp complained the payment wasn't being made quickly enough and threatened to cancel the deal, some of the people familiar with the matter said.

"I previously represented Daniels", Davidson said, referring to Clifford's stage name. Davidson declined to comment on the story, citing "attorney-client privilege".

In October 2016, the Washington Post published a videotape made, but never aired, by NBC's "Access Hollywood" in which Trump spoke of groping women. In the tape, Trump said he could grab women "by the p-".

The latest immigration controversy comes a week before the current government spending authorization is due to expire on January 19.

Both Michael Cohen and Stormy Daniels are denying reports of a "hush money" payoff.

Already, Congress has had to pass three short-term extensions of spending authority to buy time to agree on funding priorities for the fiscal year that began October 1.

While the question of whether or not Trump had a consensual affair with an adult film actress may be juicy gossip, it isn't almost as pressing as whether Clifford was paid by top Trump lawyers to keep quiet (Clifford had reportedly previously discussed revealing her relationship on ABC's Good Morning America.) What's more, the reports fit into a larger patter of the president denying alleged encounters - both consensual and non-consensual - and going as far as to smear those women and call them liars.

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.

"Paddington 2" is charming
A feature-length film needs three acts of plot and, to that end, this franchise has introduced villains to Paddington's universe. It gives me huge pleasure to say that if you were anxious Paddington 2 would fail to repeat that feat, you're absolutely wrong.
