Porn star Stormy Daniels suing Trump lawyer for defamation

27 March 2018

The Stormy Daniels interview produced the highest ratings for "60 Minutes" since 2008, delivering roughly 22 million viewers on Sunday night, according to preliminary numbers provided by Nielsen Media Research.

The suit, filed by her lawyer Michael Avenatti in California, came a day after CBS aired a tell-all interview with Daniels regarding an affair she alleges she had with Trump more than a decade ago, and which the White House continues to deny.

Daniels, who has appeared at the club in the past, is expected to perform in the evening and hold a meet-and-greet with fans after.

It is unknown if President Trump watched the tell-all interview, although many commentators assumed he did, given his well-known TV viewing habits. She is now suing him over the validity of a nondisclosure agreement she signed shortly before the 2016 election that was created to prevent her from discussing their relationship. Asked if she thought he had offered her a role on "The Apprentice" to keep her romantically interested, she said, "Of course".

In a letter released after the interview, Mr Cohen's lawyer Brent Blakely said: "Mr. Cohen had absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with any such person or incident, and does not even believe that any such person exists, or that such incident ever occurred".

But the Campaign Legal Center's Larry Noble says the fact that Cohen paid Daniels just days before the 2016 election could be evidence that the "election was on their mind" and that the money could be considered funds spent as to boost the campaign, and therefore subject to campaign finance laws. Here are four big takeaways from her sit-down with Anderson Cooper.

In the interview Daniels said she did not know the man's identity and did not link him to Cohen. Although she spoke to the tabloid magazine in 2011, In Touch did not publish that interview until this January.

"A guy walked up on me and said to me, 'Leave Trump alone".

On "60 Minutes" Sunday, Daniels said she was also threatened by an unidentified man in a Las Vegas parking lot in 2011 who instructed her to stop talking about Trump.

Ms. Clifford, on the other hand, represented herself as having no illusions about herself or Mr. Trump. Afterwards, he asked to see her again, she said. But she then feared for her family's safety after being subjected to threats.

Shah pointed to Daniels' past signed statements denying the affair to back up his argument that she has been "inconsistent" about her claims. She said she was with her infant daughter at the time.

And in an unrelated case, a NY state Supreme Court judge ruled recently that a defamation case involving the president and a former contestant on The Apprentice who claims he sexually harassed her can move forward in state court, as NPR's Vanessa Romo reported.

The letter also insisted that Daniels, an actress, dancer, and producer, refrain from making "false and defamatory statements" about Cohen in the future.

Davidson, now Daniels' former attorney, said in a statement that he could not speak publicly until Daniels waived attorney-client privilege, but that he looked forward to correcting the record soon.
