Jessica Drake, an adult film star who has her own history with President Donald Trump, says that Stormy Daniels long ago told her that she was threatened by a man on behalf of Trump, for speaking out about her relationship with him.

In an interview today on Good Morning America, Drake backed up Daniels, saying she was telling the truth.

“She actually told me about the threat twice,” Drake said. “So the first time she told me about the threat was shortly after it happened. She relayed the experience to me. I said something like, ‘I’m so sorry, I can’t even imagine. What are you going to do?'”

Neither Daniels nor Drake reported the matter to police.

Trump has mostly remained silent about his past with Daniels, but on Twitter last week called the man Daniels said threatened her “non-existent.”

Drake once said that Trump offered her $10,000 to have sex with him, an offer she says she denied.

In October 2016, Drake also said—along with other women—that she was groped by the president.

“When we entered the room, he grabbed each of us tightly in a hug and kissed each one of us without asking permission,” Drake said at a press conference.
