Porn stars paid off by Trump
PORN star Jessica Drake has signed a non-disclosure agreement that bars her from talking about US President Donald Trump – including allegations that he kissed her without permission and offered her $10,000 for a date in 2006.
The Daily Beast reported that Ms Drake’s nondisclosure deal barred “any and every mention of Trump”, her publicist told the news website.
“Jessica signed a nondisclosure agreement after her allegations of misconduct, and she can’t do as much as peep his name publicly,” said the publicist, who was not named.
At a news conference with feminist lawyer Gloria Allred in October 2016, Ms Drake alleged that Mr Trump kissed her and two other women without permission after a golf event in 2006, when he was married to Melania.
That same month, The Wall Street Journal reported, Trump Organisation lawyer Michael Cohen arranged to pay $130,000 in hush money to ex-porn star Stephanie Clifford.
Ms Clifford was paid so she would keep quiet about an alleged hookup with the married real-estate mogul, the Journal said.
Meanwhile the US Ambassador to Panama John Feeley has resigned, telling the State Department he no longer feels able to serve Mr Trump.
Under-secretary of State Steve Goldstein said Mr Feeley’s departure was not a response to Mr Trump’s alleged use of the word “s***hole” to describe Haiti and African countries.
