Pence Dismisses 'Baseless' Allegation That Trump Had Affair With Porn Star

CNN has not independently confirmed The Wall Street Journal's reporting, and in response to the initial Wall Street Journal report about the affair, Cohen said the rumors had circulated since 2011 and that Trump "once again vehemently denies any such occurrence".

"It's insane how one moment can overshadow 15 years of work", she told the audience.

Adult film actress Stormy Daniels appears during an autograph signing for Wicked Pictures at the 2012 AVN Adult Entertainment Expo at The Joint inside the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, January 20, 2012 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Officials with Trump's campaign committee did not respond to requests for comment Monday, while Cohen rejected the allegations in the complaints.

She also told the reporter that Trump, through intermediaries, had offered to pay her a six-figure sum to keep quiet, though was now stalling with signing the final agreement and she anxious the billionaire may not pay up. "[Trump] called me all the time".

"Nobody wants to be seen with me right now", she said, per The Times.

On Saturday night, Daniels made her first public appearance since her name resurfaced over the alleged sexual encounter with Trump. According to In Touch, Daniels also passed a polygraph test. "Imagine coming back when you're the most insecure", she said.


"It certainly looks pretty obvious to me that this was hush money payment", Ryan said.

They insist the account was full of inspirational quotes, promotional material and professional photos showing her fully clothed.

Weisberg never wrote what he knew from Daniels until Thursday. "So me and my assistant went", she said. "She returned a short while later to flip her hair at the other scribes".

The Wall Street Journal reported on Thursday that Cohen set up a Delaware LLC in September 2016, called 'Resolutions Consultants, LLC, ' a name that is rather similar to 'RCI, ' the fourth pseudonym Weisberg cites in his piece for Slate.

Here's the problem for Pence (and Trump): If there's no there there, then why did Michael Cohen, Trump's personal lawyer, set up a company in DE - a state notorious for its lack of corporate transparency - and make a $130,000 payment to Daniels right before the 2016 election?

Vice President Mike Pence argued on Monday that he knows President Donald Trump didn't mean to be racist when referring to Haiti and African countries as "shithole countries" because "I know what's in the president's heart".
