"We do not believe it is appropriate for her to preside over this case, which obviously involves the president, in light of this fact", said Michael Avenatti, who represents Daniels.

The head of CBS News said Tuesday that a 60 Minutes interview with adult film star Stormy Daniels is on its way but that more journalistic work needs to be done on the story.

While Daniels' lawyer has said Trump knew about the payment and had a sexual relationship with the actress (which the actress herself previously denied), Daniels has not explicitly spoken out about the alleged affair outside of the lawsuit filings.

The alleged affair has become the latest distraction for Trump as he tries to advance his trade agenda and prepares for a proposed meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

Trump also did not sign the document, so Daniels' attorney says it should be voided and she should be allowed to speak about the matter.

Regardless of whether Cohen accepts Clifford's offer, the money is the subject of a complaint by the watchdog group Common Cause to the Federal Election Commission.

Avenatti had written a letter to Michael Cohen, Trump's longtime personal lawyer, explaining that Daniels would wire money into an account of Trump's choosing.

Cohen had until noon Tuesday to respond to the offer, the letter said. She reportedly taped an interview with CBS's 60 Minutes during which she made new claims about Trump.

And although Avenatti did not offer specifics, he hinted that legal action was coming.

Clifford could face a US$1 million penalty if she breaks the nondisclosure agreement.

A message left with Cohen was not immediately returned. Neither Cohen, nor his lawyer, Lawrence Rosen, responded to a request for comment. CNN reports that Trump has been asking for advice about Stormy from close confidantes and advisors, who have told Trump to not fight back against Daniels' claims via her lawyer that her NDA is not valid, because such moves would make Trump appear guilty. It was the first time the White House had admitted the President was involved in any way with Clifford.
