A former porn star, who reportedly received a $130,000 payment from United States President Donald Trump's lawyer shortly before the election, has quashed the allegations of receiving hush money.

Michael Cohen, a longtime representative of the Trump Organization, reportedly negotiated a nondisclosure agreement with a lawyer for the woman, Stephanie Clifford, over an encounter that allegedly occurred in 2006.

Apparently, Miz Clifford alleged to sources vetted by the WSJ that she and POTUS had a sexual encounter in 2006, a year after the businessman Wednesday Melania Trump.

However, the official said allegations of a relationship between Trump and Clifford are "old, recycled reports, which were published and strongly denied prior to the election".

The first report about Clifford in the Wall Street Journal also alluded to an abrupt end to her alleged talks with ABC.


It's worth noting that Jessica Drake, another adult-film star, alleged in October 2016 that Trump "kissed her and two other women", without consent, back in 2006. At the time, she said she was a Republican.

"This is now the second time that you are raising outlandish allegations against my client", Cohen told the Journal.

Trump's attorney in the affair, Mr. Cohen, told the Journal that "President Trump once again vehemently denies any such occurrence as has Ms. Daniels".

The payment, the Journal reports, was made through Clifford's attorney, Keith Davidson.

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


In a statement provided by Cohen from Daniels, she also calls the article "absolutely false". His presidential bid also faced a major test in October 2016 when a 2005 "Access Hollywood" recording of Trump, boasting about grabbing women's genitals, was leaked to the Washington Post. Their friendship included Trump calling their Los Angeles home and inviting her to parties that featured people like his son Donald Trump Jr. and Kim Kardashian, as well as events, like the 2007 Miss USA pageant. As Trump took office, Cohen said he would work in private practice and act as Trump's personal attorney.

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

The Smoking Gun said Trump was among an-80 player field that included star athletes like Aaron Rodgers and Drew Brees, as well as entertainers such as Ray Romano and Cheech Marin.

The White House has not yet released an official statement regarding the alleged payment.
