NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — The Wall Street Journal is reporting that President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer brokered a $130,000 payment to a porn star to prevent her from publicly discussing an alleged sexual encounter with Trump.

Trump met Stephanie Clifford, whose goes by the name Stormy Daniels in films, at a 2006 golf event. That was a year after Trump’s marriage to his wife, Melania.
