Stormy Daniels interview draws highest ratings for '60 Minutes' in ten years

Anderson Cooper earlier this month beginning speculation about what the porn star might discuss in the interview airing on Sunday

Former adult film actress Stormy Daniels' Sunday night interview about her alleged affair with Trump more than 10 years ago scored the CBS news magazine its highest ratings in almost a decade, even beating out its late 2016 interview with Trump.

"We're not going to get into the details of everything we have at this time, and there's a reason for that", he said on NBC's "Today" show. She said she asked, "Does this normally work for you?"

In 2018, In Touch magazine finally published the transcript of what Daniels had said about her alleged affair with Donald Trump. Afterward, he asked to see her again, she said.

"60 Minutes" correspondent Anderson Cooper noted during the interview that Melania Trump had recently given birth just a few months before.

She was on her way to a fitness class with her child when an unknown man approached her, according to a transcript of the interview released on Sunday.

Though Shah refused to answer questions about whether Trump watched the interview, he did say the president "doesn't believe that any of the claims that Ms. Daniels made last night in her interview were accurate".

Stormy is suing Trump to try invalidate a non disclosure agreement she was made to sign.

The allegation that an individual threatened Daniels with actual violence while attempting to frighten her off going public about her sexual history with Trump takes the dispute between the president and the porn star to an entirely new level.

But Daniels never went to the police, saying that she was scared of the repercussions.

The starlet is said to face a $1 million damages claim each time she breaks it - and has been hit with a cease and desist letter by Trump's lawyers since the special aired. Four years later, when Trump ran for president, Daniels said she was contacted by various media outlets to tell her story.

In the letter, obtained by CNN, Cohen attorney Blakely told Daniels' attorney Avenatti that his client had nothing to do with the alleged threat in the parking lot.

In addition to repeatedly denying that Trump had sex with Daniels, the White House has said he denies having an affair with McDougal.

Daniels' told "60 Minutes" on Sunday that she felt she had "no choice" but to sign the statements because of the nondisclosure agreement she had signed.

The Daniels interview came despite a $130,000 hush agreement struck days before the 2016 presidential election between Daniels and Trump's personal attorney Michael Cohen.

Previously, Cohen has said neither the Trump Organization nor the Trump campaign was a party to the transaction with Daniels and he was not reimbursed for the payment. McDougal said she ended the relationship in 2007 out of guilt concerning Trump's wife, Melania.

And in an unrelated case, a NY state Supreme Court judge ruled recently that a defamation case involving the president and a former contestant on The Apprentice who claims he sexually harassed her can move forward in state court, as NPR's Vanessa Romo reported. It also alleges that Cohen was secretly involved in her discussions with American Media. The day her suit was filed, a judge ruled that a defamation lawsuit filed by a former "Apprentice" contestant who accused Trump of groping her could proceed.
