- An October 2016 nondisclosure agreement indicates that the porn star Jessica Drake has “confidential information” about an alleged sexual relationship years ago between Trump and another porn star, Stormy Daniels.
- Drake and Daniels both say they met Trump at a July 2006 celebrity golf tournament in Lake Tahoe.
- Days before Daniels signed the $US130,000 agreement negotiated by Trump’s lawyer, Drake accused Trump of forcibly kissing her and offering her money for sex.
An October 2016 nondisclosure agreement indicates that Jessica Drake, a porn star who has accused President Donald Trump of sexual misconduct, has “confidential information” about an alleged sexual relationship years ago between Trump and Stormy Daniels, another porn star.
Drake was listed in the agreement – included in a lawsuit filed by Daniels’ lawyer this week – under an alias. Her attorney, Gloria Allred, confirmed to CNN on Thursday that the “Angel Ryan” mentioned in the document was Drake.
“Jessica Drake is still my client. She is Angel Ryan and the one whose name is in the settlement agreement,” Allred said.
Drake and Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, both say they met Trump at a July 2006 celebrity golf tournament in Lake Tahoe. Clifford says she and Trump, who was married, began a yearlong affair.
A week before Clifford signed the agreement, Drake publicly accused the Trump of kissing her without permission and offering to pay her for sex at the 2006 golf tournament. Trump has called the allegations “total fiction.”
The development is the latest twist in an increasingly public story about Trump’s relationship with Clifford.
Clifford sued the president on Tuesday, arguing that the nondisclosure agreement she says was designed to conceal the affair is invalid because the president never signed it. The suit says Trump “purposely did not sign the agreement so he could later, if need be, publicly disavow any knowledge of the Hush Agreement and Ms. Clifford.”
On Wednesday, the White House press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, said the president denied having any relationship with Daniels and did not know about a $US130,000 payment to Daniels from Trump’s lawyer in October 2016 to keep her silent. The lawyer, Michael Cohen, has said the money was his own.
In January, In Touch Weekly, a celebrity-gossip magazine, published the transcript from a lengthy 2011 interview with Daniels in which she detailed her relationship with Trump. She told the outlet that he nicknamed her “honey bunch” and said she was “beautiful and smart just like his daughter.”
