News of the affair started making rounds in January when Wall Street Journal reported a secret negotiation worth Dollars 130, 000 made by Trump's long-time attorney Michael Cohen, allegedly in an attempt to buy Daniel's silence ahead of 2016 presidential elections.
"I am not denying this affair because I was paid "hush money"," she said. The magazine says Daniels passed a lie-detector test and Trump's attorney had threatened to sue if it released the interview. What should be a night to celebrate for Trump would have a damper thrown on it as Stormy Daniels appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night as well.
When Daniels joined Kimmel that night, the talk show host wasted no time pointing out a curious find regarding the statement.

Mahrez has over two years remaining on his contract at Leicester having signed a new long-term deal with the club in August 2016. The most important thing now is that the transfer window is closed and in the transfer window it is always hard .

Clifford continued to decline to comment, and then the interview somehow got even weirder. Neither he nor Daniels has addressed whether she was paid $130,000, and, if so, why.
Kimmel spent most of the interview phrasing questions with a lot of "did or did not " s and double-negatives, and Daniels spent most of the interview cracking jokes about the wild stuff that shows up online.
Trump was preparing to deliver his State of the Union 2018 address on Tuesday, January 30, when a written statement purportedly from Daniels surfaced. Kimmel pressed her on details described in the interview, and Clifford said that if Trump had invited her to his hotel room to watch her videos, he would have "good taste".
Daniels played coy, neither confirming nor denying that she had signed a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) barring her from speaking about him. "I said no, what's she gonna say?"
