American actress Stormy Daniels sues Donald Trump

American actress Stormy Daniels sues Donald Trump

Clifford also confirms details about the supposed affair with Trump.

Days before the November 2016 presidential election which Trump won, Clifford put her name to the document, as did Cohen for Essential Consultants, it says. Last week, the President's personal lawyer acknowledged giving a $130,000 payment to Stormy Daniels.

The suit says Daniels had an "intimate relationship" with Trump from the summer of 2006 into 2007.

The agreement specifies arbitration to resolve disputes, and in the lawsuit, Daniels said Cohen began "a bogus arbitration proceeding" against her last month.

And on Tuesday, Daniels filed a lawsuit against Trump, claiming the nondisclosure agreement she signed is invalid because it was signed by only Daniels and Trump's attorney.

The alleged deal was signed on October 28, 2016, just few days before the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

The suit was filed in the Los Angeles Superior Court, according to The New York Times.

The White House has previously declined to comment on the matter, calling it settled.

"I think she may have to, and she's prepared to do that", Avenatti said.

Answering questions from CNN's Jeff Zeleny, Sanders said the President has denied having a sexual relationship with Daniels.

On Oct 28, 2016 - two weeks before the Nov 8 presidential election - Daniels and Essential Consultants signed the confidential settlement agreement but not Trump.

Daniels's accusations have raised complaints from watchdog groups who say Cohen's payment to the porn star violated campaign finance laws, claiming the funds came from Trump's campaign.

Avenatti also said she's hoping to dispel some of the "misinformation" out there about the nondisclosure agreement and "set the record straight".

It is unclear at what point during the talks about the NDA Cohen had personally wired $130,000 into Daniels' bank account.

Cohen previously acknowledged arranging the payment to Daniels, whose legal name is Stephanie Clifford, but he did not disclose the goal. "There's no question the president knew about it at the time".

Cohen and Daniels signed the agreement to secure her silence on October 28, 2016, 11 days before the election.

"To be clear, the attempts to intimidate Ms. Clifford into silence and "shut her up" in order to "protect Mr. Trump" continue unabated", the suit says.

A copy of the agreement showed Daniels, identified as "Peggy Peterson", signed the paperwork, but Trump, apparently identified as "David Dennison", did not.

Cohen did not respond to requests for comment on Tuesday and Wednesday.

It corroborates several statements Daniels made in a 2011 interview with InTouch magazine, including that she and Trump met in Lake Tahoe, Nevada, where they allegedly had their first sexual encounter in 2006.
