House Dems to Launch Inquiry into Trump Affair Accusations This fall, the House Judiciary Committee will conduct a major investigation into hush money paid to two women who have made claims of affairs with Trump.

The investigation will focus on the president's alleged involvement in the payments.

The women involved are adult-film star Stormy Daniels and former Playboy model Karen McDougal.

Before the 2016 election, Daniels was paid $130,000 and McDougal was paid $150,000 to not reveal the alleged affairs before Americans headed to the polls.

Trump's former personal lawyer Michael Cohen, who is currently serving a three-year prison sentence on campaign finance charges, oversaw the payments.

When asked by a reporter in 2018 if he knew about the payments made to Daniels, Trump responded, "No." Cohen said the payment to McDougal was made "in coordination with and at the direction" of Trump.

With more than 130 members calling for official impeachment proceedings to begin, the inquiry could move the House closer to the impeachment process.
