Stormy Daniels offers to return $130000 payment to Trump lawyer

Stormy Daniels offers to return $130000 payment to Trump lawyer

Stephanie Clifford, whose stage name is Stormy Daniels, says she will pay back the $130,000 (£93,000) so she can break her silence on what she says was an affair with Mr Trump that began in 2006 and lasted for several months.

Daniels sent a letter Monday to Trump's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, who cut that hush money deal, offering to repay the money, NBC News reported.

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

According to a BuzzFeed report, the interview is set to air on March 18 - but Trump and his lawyers are scrambling to block the broadcast from happening, the New York Times reported on Sunday.

We could soon be hearing much, much more about the alleged Donald Trump-Stormy Daniels affair if the adult film actress has her way.

She said in the letter Monday that she seeks to "speak openly and freely about her prior relationship with the president and the attempts to silence her".

The offer came earlier in the offseason, which implies it wasn't something proposed lat week during the Scouting Combine. They now have a Super Bowl champion quarterback as the backup to their MVP candidate Carson Wentz .


Trump's lawyers are reportedly considering legal action in an attempt to stop the interview from airing, but it's unclear if they'd be successful.

Stormy sued Trump in a bid to formally discharge the NDA last week, which she says she was made to sign in October 2016. However, it appears that Trump's adulterous philandering, a subject about which he has never been reluctant to brag, may develop into a story of legitimate geopolitical import thanks to the astonishing incompetence of Michael Cohen, his lawyer-cum-fixer charged with making this unpleasantness go away.

The lawsuit also claimed that there were ongoing efforts to silence Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford.

Asked about the allegations last week, White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders noted that Trump has denied them.

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. But Daniels' lawyer, Michael Avenatti, posted a picture of Daniels with Cooper and himself on his Twitter feed. The White House has denied there was an affair.

If the president's attorneys reject the offer however, it could be seen as acknowledging the existence of the nondisclosure agreement and that it directly involves President Trump.
