In Touch published excerpts from an interview Wednesday it conducted in 2011 with Stormy Daniels, whose legal name is Stephanie Clifford. In the excerpts, Daniels talks about a sexual encounter she says she had with Trump in 2006.

“[The sex] was textbook generic,” Daniels said. “I actually don’t even know why I did it, but I do remember while we were having sex, I was like, ‘Please, don’t try to pay me.’ ”

Daniels told the publication in 2011 that after the encounter, Trump kept saying: “ ‘I’m gonna call you, I’m gonna call you. I have to see you again. You’re amazing. We have to get you on The Apprentice.’”

The Wall Street Journal reported last week that Trump arranged a six-figure payment to Daniels to keep her from discussing a sexual encounter with Trump.

According to the report, Michael Cohen, an attorney for the Trump Organization at the time and now Trump’s personal lawyer, arranged for Daniels to receive $130,000 as part of a nondisclosure agreement one month before the 2016 presidential election.
 
Daniels privately told sources interviewed by the Journal that she and Trump had a consensual sexual encounter in 2006, the year after he and Melania Trump were married. 
 
A White House official declined to comment to the Journal about the payment, but said that the allegations of the interaction between Trump and Daniels were “old, recycled reports, which were published and strongly denied prior to the election.”
 
Cohen told the Journal in a statement that Trump “once again vehemently denies” the encounter. He did not comment on the alleged $130,00 payment.

“This is now the second time that you are raising outlandish allegations against my client,” Cohen said in the statement. “You have attempted to perpetuate this false narrative for over a year; a narrative that has been consistently denied by all parties since at least 2011.” 

Cohen's reference to previous allegations likely includes the Journal's report in the days before the election that Daniels intended to appear on "Good Morning America" to discuss the alleged affair. She reportedly chose not to appear on the show at that time without explanation.

Cohen sent the paper a statement signed by “Stormy Daniels” denying the sexual encounter with Trump and saying that hush money rumors are “completely false.”
