The British media outlet The Guardian has obtained a copy of porn actress Stormy Daniels' soon-to-be released memoir "Full Disclosure," and the tale apparently is as salacious as the title would indicate.
Daniels explains her claim that she slept with President Donald Trump in 2006, why she decided to sign a $130,000 hush agreement in the days preceding Trump's 2016 election, and why she later decided to go public with her story.
Trump has denied the tryst but has acknowledged repaying his former lawyer Michael Cohen the $130,000. Cohen has pleaded guilty to tax evasion, campaign finance violations and other charges.
Daniels claims that Trump called her multiple times after their alleged affair, promising to get her on his TV show "The Apprentice." He even offered to help her win, she says.
“He was going to have me cheat, and it was 100 percent his idea," she writes, according to the Guardian. The book is scheduled for release next month.

Whenever she saw Trump, she writes that “‘I had sex with that’, I’d say to myself. Eech.'”
She also goes into graphic detail on the tryst.
Daniels says she met Trump in 2006 when she was a greeter at a celebrity golf tournament in Lake Tahoe, California. Trump's bodyguard later passed along the invitation to dinner that she says became a sexual encounter.
She also revisits her claim of an encounter with an unknown man a few years later that she perceived as a threat from Trump. The president has dismissed that story as a "con job."
As Trump's campaign grew stronger, she said she felt she might be in danger if she didn't cut a deal. But later she decided that going public might make her and her daughter less vulnerable to attack.
The book is coming out just weeks after the release of Bob Woodward's blistering take on Trump and his administration, "Fear: Trump in the White House."
On "Full Disclosure," Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, writes about growing up poor in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. She says she was sexually abused at age 9 and became a stripper while still in high school enroute to becoming a well-known porn actress and director.
“The deck has always been stacked against me,” she writes, adding that “I own my story and the choices I made.”
