A lawyer for President Donald Trump arranged a $130,000 payment to a former adult-film star a month before the 2016 election as part of an agreement that precluded her from publicly discussing an alleged sexual encounter with Mr. Trump, according to people familiar with the matter.

Cohen now serves as the president's personal attorney.

But Evans said she wasn't intrigued and told her friend she had other plans.

Later, Daniels called her repeatedly, according to Evans, and asked her to join the party - an invitation that Evans declined. "Stormy said Donald knew exactly who she was and wanted to meet her". "Let's have some fun!'" Evans said.

The sexual rendezvous allegedly took place in 2006, after the President had married his current wife and First Lady Melania Trump.
