Much has been made about the recent Wall Street Journal report about adult film actress Stormy Daniels ’s alleged sexual relationship with president Donald Trump. Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen allegedly paid Daniels $130,000 in late 2016 to ensure her silence on the matter, the latest scandal for president who is approaching the anniversary of his inauguration.

New details emerged about the relationship between Trump and Daniels, thanks to emails between political consultants sent in 2009 regarding a potential Daniels political campaign, Mother Jones reported.

According to the emails, Daniels and Trump had several encounters with one another, including a situation where Trump supposedly asked Daniels to watch Discovery Channel’s “Shark Week” programming block with him for three hours. Another encounter allegedly involved Daniels spanking Trump with a copy of Forbes magazine, at the now-president’s request.
