Trump Biographer: There Are ‘Brand-Name Women’ Hoping They Don’t Get Outed For Trump Affairs

David Cay Johnston, the Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter who has spent years investigating President Donald Trump, says that Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal could just be just the tip of the iceberg — that many other women may soon be linked to affairs with the president.

And some of them could be very well-known.

Appearing on The Dean Obeidallah Show Wednesday evening on SiriusXM, Johnston said, with certainty, that numerous women besides Daniels and McDougal have had affairs with Trump — and some of them could be famous.

“I assure you there are lots of other women,” Johnston said. “There are some brand-name women who, I’m sure, are hoping that their names do not get dragged into this. I mean, I know who they are. They’re not in the record. But they may.”

Asked by host Dean Obeidallah, a Mediaite contributor, to clarify his definition of “brand-name women,” Johnston said the public would instantly recognize their names.

“The minute you hear them — maybe not everybody — but people who pay attention to stuff will say, ‘Oh, I know who that is.'”

Stormy Daniels attorney Michael Avenatti also claimed on Twitter today that he has “new evidence” of multiple other women, as well as “pregnancy concerns.”
