when Kimmel began asking her about the reports. He then pointed out what appeared to be discrepancies between her signature on Tuesday’s statement and her signature on a previous statement and promotional materials.
When Daniels agreed that the signature on Tuesday’s statement didn’t look the same, Kimmel asked her whether she knew where the statement came from. She hesitated and then said, “I do not know where it came from.”
She didn’t answer when asked whether she had signed a nondisclosure agreement.
Following the interview, her attorney, Keith Davidson, brushed off Daniels’s inability to be more forthcoming as her attempt at being lighthearted.
“She was having fun on Kimmel and being her normal playful self,” Davidson wrote in an email to the newspaper.
As far as her denial Tuesday goes, “the signature is indeed hers as she signed the statement today in the presence of me and her manager, Gina Rodriguez,” he added. The attorney said the same thing in a statement to NBC News on Wednesday.
Michael Cohen, a personal attorney for Trump, has strongly denied that Trump and Daniels had an affair in 2006, and has also denied a Wall Street Journal report that he passed along a $130,000 payment to Daniels during the campaign when she was thinking about sharing her story with Slate and Good Morning America.
Daniels spoke about her liaison with Trump in detail during a 2011 interview with In Touch magazine. The magazine decided to publish the interview in full earlier this month.
