Years before the 2016 presidential election, adult-film star Stormy Daniels agreed to a polygraph test regarding her alleged affair with Donald Trump. And it seems she passed the test with flying colors.
NBC News reports Daniels—legal name Stephanie Clifford—had agreed to take the lie detector test in 2011, around the time she was selling the story of the affair to various magazines. According to a report recently obtained by NBC News, Daniels was asked if she had unprotected sex with the now-president during examination. The actress replied “yes,” and the test’s administrator found a more than 99 percent probability she was telling the truth.
“Long before Mr. Trump announced his candidacy for the presidency, Ms. Clifford passed a lie detector test confirming her relationship with Mr. Trump,” Daniels’ attorney Michael Avenatti told NBC News. “Where are his test results claiming otherwise? Where are [Michael] Cohen’s test results claiming otherwise? When this is over, the American people will know the truth about the relationship and the cover-up.”
The test, which was conducted by Las Vegas-based company Western Security Consultants, consisted of three questions regarding Daniels’ alleged affair with Trump. NBC reports these were the following questions: “Around July 2006, did you have vaginal intercourse with Donald Trump?”; “Around July 2006, did you have unprotected sex with Donald Trump?”; and “Did Trump say he would get you on The Apprentice?”
Daniels reportedly answered “yes” to all questions. One analysis method found she was being truthful in all three responses; however, a second method found that the third claim was “inconclusive.”
Trump's attorney has denied Trump and Daniels had a sexual relationship; however, he is now seeking $20 million in damages from the porn star for violating the terms of a nondisclosure agreement. Daniels is arguing that the contract is void because Trump never signed it.
