Did President Donald Trump have a sexual encounter with adult film star Stormy Daniels (given name Stephanie Clifford) in 2006?
The Wall Street Journal broke a story just hours ago alleging that the encounter likely to have happened. President Trump’s personal attorney Michael Cohen is thought to have paid Ms. Clifford $130,000 to keep the story quiet just a month before the election. Stormy was reported to have been in talks with ABC’s Good Morning to go public with the story when sources say she instead accepted the payment not to talk.
Did the President have sex with a porn star?
Donald Trump made several public appearances with Stormy Daniels around 2006. The encounter is rumored to have taken place after a celebrity golf tournament in Lake Tahoe. The now President was then very much a married man. The traditional Republican platform is one of family values. A married man having sex with a porn star would be completely against that core value.
Steve Bannon says there may be hundreds of women
Steve Bannon, a former White House staffer and trust aid, alleges that there may be hundreds of women that have been paid off by the now President Donald Trump. In Michael Wolff’s book tell-all book, The Fire and Fury, Bannon is makes several statements damaging to President Donald Trump’s reputation. Bannon talks about life on the campaign trail. One of the President’s long time attorneys is Marc Kasowitz.
Bannon is quoted, “Look, Kasowitz has known [the President] for twenty-five years. What did we have, a hundred women? Kasowitz took care of all of them.”
If either of these allegations is true, it could have devastating impacts on the reputation of President Trump.
What does President Trump say about the allegations?
CNNPolitics, which also reported on the story, quoted Michael Cohen, Trump’s most trusted personal attorney, saying the President “vehemently denies” the allegation that he had sex with Stormy Daniels. Cohen did not, however, address the payoff of $130,000 at the time.
Cohen is not in regular contact with President currently due to the ongoing investigation into possible ties to Russia. Cohen is embroiled in the Russian investigation himself.
No more specific or direct quotes from the president himself were available as of the writing of this article.
Is Trump “Making America Great Again”?
With repeated reports of sexual misconduct (reported sex with Storm Daniels among others) and political malfeasance (possible collusion with Russia during the election) the Trump Presidency appears to be on very shaky ground. On January 20th, 2018, it will the anniversary of the president’s inauguration. He has been embattled and under Federal investigation the entire time.
President Donald Trump hasn’t made America great again. He has made us an embarrassment around the world. I feel bad for the voters that were duped by him.0
