AMI soon paid Ms. McDougal $ 150,000 to silence her – and Mr. Trump later thanked him for his help, the newspaper said.

The report provides a bloody report on the negotiations that led to this payout, and another cause for porno – fixation Stormy Daniels, based on statements by former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen, and on interviews with "three dozen people direct knowledge of the events or who have been informed about them, as well as court documents, company documents and other documents, "reported the newspaper.

On Thursday, the White House asked Mr. Trump's participation in the silence agreement to the external lawyer of President Jay Sekulov, who refused to comment.
