Adult film actress sues President Trump over confidentiality agreement

Trump Lawyer's Payment to Porn Star Was Reported as Suspicious by Bank

Clifford's lawsuit also alleges that Trump and Cohen "aggressively sought to silence Ms. Clifford as part of an effort to avoid her telling the truth, thus helping to ensure he won the Presidential Election".

There was an awkward moment on Tuesday evening during a CNN panel discussion about porn star Stormy Daniels' lawsuit against President Donald Trump.

Caught in the middle of a raging controversy, Cohen proceeded to dig himself a deeper hole by claiming he paid Daniels out of his own pocket during the campaign and asserted it had nothing to do with Trump's alleged relationship with her - raising questions if the admission could lead to criminal charges for conspiracy and campaign fraud against Trump.

News of Daniels' plan to sue over the NDA broke Tuesday night, with lawyers for the actress alleging that the $130,000 agreement was invalid because Trump never signed it.

The documents also state Trump used the alias David Dennison but because Trump did not sign the NDA, Avenatti argues the agreement is now "legally null and void of no effect".

But Clifford says that only she and Cohen signed the agreement on October 28, 2016, Cohen on behalf of Essential Consultants. She said the relationship included encounters in Lake Tahoe, Nevada, and Beverly Hills, California.

In the areas where David Dennison is supposed to sign, all lines are blank. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters on Wednesday, "We've addressed our feelings on that situation, and I don't have anything else to add".

US President Donald Trump - or is it "David Dennison"? The agreement.required the signature of all parties to the agreement, including that of Mr. Trump.

Just weeks before the 2016 election, Cohen reportedly created a private LLC to pay off Clifford, The Wall Street Journal reported in January. "[.] I do know the answer, and I'm not at liberty to disclose it this morning".

Cohen previously acknowledged arranging the payment to Daniels, whose legal name is Stephanie Clifford, but he did not disclose the objective.

The suit alleges that Cohen has tried to keep Clifford from talking about the relationship as recently as February 27, 2018.

"Once she tells the truth about what happened, people will understand why she signed it", Mr Avenatti said.

Mr Davidson also represented Karen McDougal, a former Playboy model who received a $US150,000 ($192,000) payment in August 2016 that prevented her from going public with her own allegations of an affair with Mr Trump. "We believe that that was so that he could later claim deniability, and therefore, from a legal perspective, we believe she's free to talk", Avenatti said.

It is unclear whether Clifford intends to return the $130,000 payment from Cohen. Mr Cohen later confirmed having made the payment, but said it came from his personal funds without the direction of Mr Trump.

"The attempts to intimidate Clifford into silence and "shut her up" to "protect Trump" continue unabated", the lawsuit read.
