Woman named in Stormy Daniels’ document accused Trump of unwanted advances

When adult film star Jessica Drake accused Donald Trump of sexual misconduct a month before the presidential election, Trump said through a spokesperson that he didn’t know the woman and had “no interest in ever knowing her.”

Less than a week later, a woman named Angel Ryan was listed in a secret settlement agreement negotiated by Trump’s personal attorney as having “confidential information” about the then-Republican nominee.

The two occurrences may appear unrelated. But there is a connection: Drake, the woman who accused Trump, and Ryan, the woman named in the non-disparagement agreement, are the same person, according to interviews and documents reviewed by CNN.
