The talent agent who used to represent President-elect Donald Trump is suspected of potentially hiding damaging remarks Trump made during his years of hosting Miss Universe Pageants.

According to an in-depth story in The Daily Beast, Ari Emanuel has been a friend and confidante to Trump for years. He is also a Democrat, but he was silent during the 2016 election season.

Emanuel purchased Miss Universe from Trump in 2015 and declined to make behind-the-scenes tapes public on which some say Trump can be heard cursing and using derogatory words and phrases.

Three sources told The Daily Beast there were, at least at one point, controversial tapes in the Miss Universe archives. Whether or not they still exist or if they have been purged for good is unknown.

According to the report, several Democrats looking to hear what was on the tapes asked Emanuel and/or people within his company, WME-IMG, for access to the audio. They were denied each time.

The Daily Beast cited federal records that show Emanuel has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to Democrats, including President Barack Obama, and left-leaning organizations over the years. He gave Hillary Clinton one check for $2,700, The Daily Beast reported, at a fundraiser early in her campaign.

Other than that, Emanuel mostly stayed silent on the election and did not publicly endorse either candidate.

In early October, The Washington Post published an audio clip of Trump boasting about kissing and groping women who were not his wife. The 2005 remarks were made public two days before Trump squared off with Clinton for a debate.

Several women also came forward and claimed Trump had been sexually aggressive with them.
