Porn star Daniels offers to return Trump's $130000

Porn star Daniels offers to return Trump's $130000

Daniels, a Baton Rouge native whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, said she wants out of the deal so that she can freely disclose details about the relationship she claims took place in 2006.

The porn star's lawyer, Michael Avenatti, made the offer in a letter to Trump's lawyer, Michael Cohen, who has said he used his own funds to "facilitate" a payment of the same amount to Daniels days before the 2016 election.

Cohen, Trump's lawyer, was given until noon (1600 GMT) Tuesday to respond.

Trump's attorney said that he paid Daniels $130,000 to keep quiet about the affair she had with the president.

"On information and belief, EC was created by Mr. Cohen with Mr. Trump's knowledge for one objective - to hide the true source of funds to be used to pay Ms. Clifford, thus further insulating Mr. Trump from later discovery and scrutiny".

In the 1971 Pentagon Papers case, the Supreme Court ruled that the New York Times and The Washington Post could not be stopped from publishing documents related to US military actions in Vietnam, despite the government's argument that such reporting would endanger national security.

Trump's very public admission things aren't all they seem comes after allegations by porn star Stormy Daniels she had a secret affair with the POTUS. The appeal of another White House sex scandal has many other networks and outlets covering the story extensively, but not Fox News.

President Donald Trump says his commerce secretary will be talking to the European Union about tariffs that he argues have been unfair to the United States. Both Cohen and the White House have denied any sexual encounter between the President and Clifford.

Lawyers affiliated with Trump have mulled filing an injunction to block the segment from airing, BuzzFeed News reported Sunday. Daniels is hoping that her mandated silence will be deemed "null and void" if she returns the payment.

"Our offer proves this out".

Clifford proposed on Monday that she be allowed to discuss her alleged affair with the president freely after repaying the money. The agreement itself was signed by Cohen and Daniels but not Trump.

"To be clear, the attempts to intimidate Ms. Clifford into silence and "shut her up" in order to "protect Mr. Trump" continue unabated", the lawsuit claims, lending weight to recent reports that the president's lawyers are attempting to prevent the 60 Minutes interview from airing.

But Trump never signed it, providing the basis for Avenatti's attempt to have it thrown out and release Daniels from her obligations.
