The White House denies all allegations that President Trump had an affair with adult-star Stormy Daniels, who said she’s been threatened to keep silent about it.
Stormy Daniels, adult star in question, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, claims she had an affair with President Trump back in 2006.
She claims that on July that year she allegedly had consensual unprotected sex with President Trump, in a hotel room during a celebrity golf tournament in Lake Tahoe, California; just over a year after Trump married the first lady, Melania, (January 2005).
Ms Daniels also claims to have been paid $130,000 in “hush money” from Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen, in 2016, just before being elected.
White House’s spokesman, Raj Shah, said: “The President strongly, clearly and consistently has denied these underlying claims, and the only person who has been inconsistent is the one making the claims”.
Trump’s lawyers are seeking damages from her, an amount of $20 million as she broke a non-disclosure deal, which Stormy Daniels alleges to be invalid.
On an interview on Sunday 25th March, Ms Daniels also spoke out about being threatened to keep quiet in 2011.
She said: “I was in a parking lot, going to a fitness class with my infant daughter…and a guy walked up on me and said to me, ‘Leave Trump alone. Forget the story.’ And then he leaned around and looked at my daughter and said, ‘That’s a beautiful little girl. It’d be a shame if something happened to her mom.’ And then he was gone.”
Mr Cohen’s attorney, Brent Blakely said in a letter:
“Mr Cohen had absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with any such person or incident, and does not even believe that any such person exists, or that such incident ever occurred”, and that Ms Daniels had to “retract and apologise to Mr Cohen through the national media for your defamatory statements on ’60 Minutes”.
Mrs Trump hasn’t yet responded to the allegations, same as President Trump.
