Stormy Daniels, the porn star who is suing the president in an effort to extricate herself from a non-disclosure agreement, passed a 2011 polygraph exam with flying colors about her relationship with Donald Trump, according to a copy of the report published by NBC News Tuesday.
The examiner who conducted the test concluded that there was more than a 99 percent probability she told the truth when she said she and Trump had unprotected sex in 2006.
Daniels, whose legal name is Stephanie Clifford, submitted to the lie detector test as part of her interview with a magazine in 2011, an article which was later killed by the publication in an effort to bury her story.
The report, whose details were first reported by the Wall Street Journal, included a sworn declaration from the examiner to confirm its validity.
Daniels’ lawyer, Michael Avenatti, confirmed to TheWrap the validity of the NBC report which included a screen grab from a video showing Clifford taking a polygraph exam in May 2011 (photo above).
“Ms. Clifford’s passing of the lie detector test should leave little doubt that she is telling the truth,” Avenatti told TheWrap via email. “The American people will judge her credibility for themselves this Sunday.”
Daniels is suing the president and his team over a nondisclosure agreement — for which she was paid $130,000 — signed right before the 2016 presidential election.
Neither The White House nor Trump’s attorney, Michael Cohen, immediately responded to TheWrap’s request for comment. But both have denied that the president had an extramarital affair with Daniels.
Cohen has admitted to facilitating the $130,000 payment, using his own money which he said was not reimbursed by the Trump Organization.
Daniels filed a lawsuit against the president earlier this month, saying the non-disclosure agreement was null and void because Trump failed to sign it.
In 2011, Daniels agreed to a sit-down interview with InTouch magazine. The magazine said that Daniels passed a lie-detector test, but did not release the details of the exam.
The test was conducted by Western Security Consultants in order to “determine if Ms. Clifford had vaginal intercourse with Donald Trump in July 2006.”
According to the report, Daniels responded “yes” to the following three questions related to her relationship with Trump:
“Around July 2006, did you have vaginal intercourse with Donald Trump?”
“Around July 2006, did you have unprotected sex with Donald Trump?”
“Did Trump say he would get you on ‘The Apprentice’?”
The examiner used two separate methods to determine the answers’ accuracy, including an algorithm method developed by Johns Hopkins University which found there was a 1 percent chance of deception for the three answers, and a second analysis, which found there was enough evidence Clifford was telling the truth on the first two questions. The third was inconclusive, according to the report.
