Despite providing Trump's lawyer, Michael Cohen, with a typed and signed statement denying the "alleged sexual encounter" with Donald Trump, it seems former porn star Stormy Daniels' story doesn't add up.

Trump had his attorney Michael Cohen arrange a payment of $130,000 to Clifford along with a nondisclosure agreement before the presidential election.

The official wouldn't answer questions about the reported deal with Clifford - who performed in about 150 porn films, including "Dirty Deeds", "Nymphos" and "Good Will Humping", an XXX-rated spoof of the flick "Good Will Hunting". That was a year after Trump's marriage to his wife, Melania. This is now the second time that [the Wall Street Journal is] raising outlandish allegations against my client.

The Wall Street Journal had previously reported that Clifford was in talks with Good Morning America to talk about Trump just before the November 8, 2016 election.

Adult-film actress Stormy Daniels appears during an autograph signing for Wicked Pictures at the 2012 AVN Adult Entertainment Expo in Las Vegas on January 20, 2012.

The alleged sexual encounter was consensual - but no less than 16 other women have alleged that Trump sexually assaulted them, with Trump settling out of court with one of them, Jill Harth, in 1992.

"Rumors that I have received hush money from Donald Trump are completely false", Cohen and Clifford's statement read.

While Ms. Clifford declined to respond to requests for comment, Mr. Davidson acknowledged in a comment to the Journal that he "previously represented Ms. Daniels" but that "attorney-client privilege prohibits me from commenting on my clients' legal matters".

None of the lawmakers knew Carson, and Trump found that surprising, the attendees said.

However, by November, "Ms. Clifford cut off contact with the network without telling her story". Mr. Cohen lashed at the Journal for releasing the report in his statement. Stormy Daniels, to receive $130,000 in October 2016, right around the time of the "Access Hollywood" tape.

In a meeting last fall, the president apparently said that a female intelligence expert should be assisting the U.S.in its negotiations with North Korea purely because of her Korean heritage, NBC News reported.

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