Tabloid held porn star’s 2011 interview after Trump threat

NEW YORK (AP) — Former employees say a tabloid magazine held back from publishing an adult film star’s 2011 account of an alleged affair with Donald Trump after the future president’s personal lawyer threatened to sue.

In Touch magazine has now published its 5,000-word interview with the pornographic actor Stormy Daniels. Publication comes more than six years after Trump’s long-time attorney, Michael Cohen, said in emails to In Touch’s general counsel that Trump would aggressively pursue legal action if the story was printed.

The emails were described to The Associated Press by four former employees. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they did not want to anger their former employer.
