Porn Star Stormy Daniels’ Polygraph Test Shows 99% Chance She Slept With Donald Trump in 2006

In 2011, adult film actress known as Stormy Daniels (stage name for Stephanie Clifford) took a polygraph exam (lie detector test) that included questions about her relationship with Donald Trump. The examiner determined that there was a 99% chance that she was telling the truth about having unprotected sex with Donald Trump in 2006, according to a copy of the report.

At the time, the content was not published, even though it was requested by a magazine that interviewed her in 2011. The examiner attested to the report by signing a sworn declaration on Monday, March 19, 2018 and was originally reported by the Wall Street Journal on Tuesday.

“Long before Mr. Trump announced his candidacy for the presidency, Ms. Clifford passed a lie detector test confirming her relationship with Mr. Trump,” claimed Clifford’s attorney Michael Avenatti. “When this is over, the American people will know the truth about the relationship and the cover-up.”

Donald Trump officially filed a law suit against Clifford over a nondisclosure agreement she signed shortly before the 2016 election, where he claims libel charges against the porn star for disclosing information about the relationship they had several years ago. The release of the polygraph exam should support Stormy Daniels in her defense of this suit and will bring a new distraction to the White House.
