By now, the world knows that Donald Trump, the president of the United States, had an affair with porn star Stormy Daniels. According to TIME:
‘The lawyer for porn star Stormy Daniels said for the first time on Wednesday that she had a sexual relationship with Donald Trump and said there’s “no question” he knew about a $130,000 payoff to buy her silence.’
Now, according to The Washington Post, a close friend of Stormy Daniels’ is also confirming their affair, and defending her efforts to get out of the $130,000 hush agreement. He revealed that he listened in on their phone conversations.
Keith Munyan, a 56 year-old photographer, is listed among four people in the nondisclosure agreement as knowing about the porn star’s relationship with Trump. Munyan is not barred by the agreement from speaking out publicly about the issue. According to The Post:
‘In a telephone interview late Monday with The Washington Post, Munyan mostly corroborated details Daniels already revealed in a recently published interview she gave to In Touch magazine in 2011: that she and Trump met at a celebrity golf tournament in Lake Tahoe in 2006; that he offered to get her on“The Apprentice” reality TV show; and that he also offered her a condominium in a proposed Trump Tower in Tampa.’
Munyan disclosed that Trump would call Daniels while he was working in a photo studio in a house he owned in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Valley Village. Daniels rented the house between 2006 and 2008, and Munyan attests that the first call came in 2006 after Daniels had told Trump she would meet him in Lake Tahoe.
‘She checked her phone and goes, “Look who’s calling.”She thought it was so fun. She wanted to be on ‘The Apprentice.” Wouldn’t you?’
The Post reported:
‘Munyan said Daniels placed the phone between her ear and his. He said he listened in like this on Trump’s calls six or seven times over the course of the relationship with Daniels.’
‘The only thing I ever heard him do is just babble like he always does. The conversation I remember the most is about the condominium. . . . I heard her say, “I don’t want that. That’s not what I want.”‘
The three other people listed who knew about the relationship between Daniels and the president are Daniels’s manager Gina Rodriguez, ex-husband Mike Mosney, and porn actress Jessica Drake. None of them have spoken publicly.
Daniels gave lengthy interviews to at least two news outlets prior to the hush money deal. Munyan said that he never head Trump make mention of his wife or children, and didn’t know of Daniels having any texts, photos, or other evidence of her relationship with Trump.
Munyan shared about something that happened when Daniels visited Trump in Lake Tahoe. When Daniels arrived, Trump was wearing his pajamas. Munyan said:
‘He was not dressed appropriately to have dinner with a young lady.’
Daniels had recounted to Munyan that she asked him to put on a suit and he did.
According to The Post:
‘Munyan said he hopes that an upcoming broadcast of “60 Minutes,” which taped a conversation with Daniels last week, will change what he believes are misperceptions about Daniels because of what she does for living.’
‘I want it to come out. I think people will see her in a different light. It’s time that people understand her side of the story.’
Twitter had a lot to say about Daniels too:
