President Trump's lawyer arranged a $130,000 payment to former adult film star Stephanie "Stormy Daniels" Clifford to ensure she not speak publicly about an alleged sexual encounter she had with the president at a 2006 golf tournament, The Wall Street Journal reports. The payment was allegedly coordinated in October 2016. The encounter was reportedly consensual, although another adult film star, Jessica Drake, claimed in October 2016 that Trump kissed her and two other women without consent at the same tournament. "Rumors that I have received hush money from Donald Trump are completely false," Clifford wrote in a statement to the Journal.
