White House Acknowledges Trump Ties To Stormy Legal Battle Over Alleged Affair

“I have two choices,” Stormy Daniels told Rolling Stone of the Trump scandal. “Sit at home and feel sorry for myself or make lemonade out of lemons.” White House Acknowledges Trump Ties To Stormy Legal Battle Over Alleged Affair

Cohen admitted last month that he used his personal funds to pay Daniels $130,000 in October 2016 but did not say what the payment was for.

Stormy Daniels said in an interview with CNN the attention surrounding revelations about her past relationship with President Donald Trump has been a "double-edged sword".

He noted that Daniels is not considering any of the offers at the moment.

Michael Finnegan is a Los Angeles Times writer.

Cohen's use of Trump Organization email to arrange the payment appeared to heighten the possibility that the arrangement with Daniels ran afoul of the federal law requiring disclosure of campaign contributions.

"Neither the Trump Organization nor the Trump campaign was a party to the transaction with Ms. Clifford, and neither reimbursed me for the payment, either directly or indirectly", Cohen said in that statement.

Daniels' lawyer is fighting back by declaring he can prove President Trump knew that Cohen paid hush money to Daniels. Now, Avenatti said, she wants to tell her story.

While Solid Gold had previously advertised that Stormy's performance would be accompanied by an auction of a dress the porn star wore during her alleged affair with Trump, any mention of the auction was taken down before the event.

And then she let slip something that had, until then, been unknown to the public: Trump had scored a legal victory over a former adult film actress who allegedly had an extramarital affair with the president a decade before he ran for office, according to Sanders.

In January, after the Wall Street Journal first reported that Daniels had received $130,000 from Trump's attorney, searches for her name on Pornhub exploded from a daily average of 2,500 to more than 2 million searches over five days.

One thing gets to her, though.

Avenatti told CNN on Friday he believed Cohen was lying.

The agreement uses pseudonyms, referring to Clifford as Peggy Peterson and another individual as David Dennison. Cohen signed the document the same day, but blank spaces where "DD" was supposed to sign are empty.

But Avenatti said that because the 2016 agreement was never signed and never in force, the arbitration clause it contains is also invalid and the gag order is meaningless.

"It strains credulity to conclude that Mr. Cohen is acting on his own accord and without the express approval and knowledge of his client Mr. Trump", the suit says.
