(Washington, DC) — A new report says President Trump and his associates covered up a past affair with a Playboy Playmate. Model Karen McDougal provided an eight-page handwritten account of her alleged affair with Trump to the “The New Yorker,” claiming to have had sex with Trump at the Beverly Hills Hotel.McDougal also told the “Wall Street Journal” that the publisher of the “National Enquirer” offered to pay her $150-thousand for her story, but then did not publish it. The New York Times reports that she signed the agreement on Aug. 5, 2016, giving the publisher exclusive rights to her account of any relationship with any “then-married man,” with nearly half of the payment going to three men who had helped arrange the deal.
It’s believed that after Trump’s candidacy bid was gaining steam the National Enquirer whose publisher has ties to Trump, killed the story. It’s possible that it was just a plot to gain control of the information period. The deal McDougal signed apparently prevents her from ever talking about the affair. But it was leaked anyway. McDougal says the affair began after she met Trump at a party at the Playboy Mansion in June 2006. After communicating on the phone they met at the Beverly Hills Hotel for dinner.
McDougal says, “I was so nervous! I was into his intelligence + charm. Such a polite man,” Ms. McDougal wrote in the note about the encounter. “We talked for a couple hours – then, it was ‘ON’! We got naked + had sex.”The relationship allegedly continued until April 2007, when Ms. McDougal called it off, partly out of guilt and partly because of racially insensitive and disrespectful comments Mr. Trump had made.
The president’s personal lawyer, Michael D. Cohen, told The New York Times this week that he had used $130,000 of his own money to facilitate a payment to another woman, Stephanie Clifford, a pornographic film actress known by the stage name Stormy Daniels. In 2011, she relayed her account of an affair with Mr. Trump to a different tabloid, “In Touch,” which published excerpts from the interview in January.
The White House has denied the allegations.
