Lawyer: Porn star sues to clarify record on Trump affair

Lawyer: Porn star sues to clarify record on Trump affair

Daniels said the video prompted women to come forward with "personal stories about their sexual encounters with Mr. Trump", and she, too, wanted to share her story.

The lawsuit alleges that Daniels began an "intimate relationship" with Trump in the summer of 2006 and that it continued well into 2007.

Daniels' lawsuit argued that the "hush agreement" meant to hide their alleged affair was invalid because Trump never signed it.

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

Instead, just Daniels and Cohen allegedly signed the non-disclosure agreement on October 28, 2016, the lawsuit said. Mr. Trump, however, did not sign the agreement, thus rendering it legally null and void and of no outcome.

Mueller continues to probe members of President Donald Trump's 2016 campaign for possible collusion with Russian Federation, some lawmakers have raised ethical concerns over the president's alleged preemptive coverup of an affair with porn actress Stormy Daniels.

Cohen has previously denied that the payment breached campaign finance law.

The NDA referenced Trump under the pseudonym David Dennison, while Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, is referred to as Peggy Peterson (PP).

Daniels added: "Rumours that I have received hush money from Donald Trump are completely false".

The lawsuit, which was filed Tuesday in Los Angeles and obtained by NBC News, had appended two exhibits showing that while Trump lawyer Michael Cohen signed the 2016 nondisclosure agreement, the future president, even though he'd been given an alias for the purposes of that paper, left his signature spot blank.

"She believes it's important that the public learn the truth about what happened", he said.

Trump married his third and current wife, Melania Trump, in 2005. She said Clifford's lawsuit seeking to nullify a nondisclosure agreement had already been handled.

The 2016 hush agreement directed that $130,000 be paid into the trust account of Clifford's then-attorney.

"It's our position that the entire agreement is null and void because he did not sign it", the lawyer told the Today show.

Trump has never addressed the alleged relationship publicly, and White House spokesperson Raj Shah told members of the press he had never asked the president about the alleged relationship. But Cohen, who at the time was an attorney for the Trump Organization, stepped in with a set of documents and lots of cash.

"16. After discovering Ms. Clifford's plans, Mr. Trump, with the assistance of his attorney Mr. 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". Clifford alleges that as recently as last week, Trump's attorney tried to initiate an arbitration proceeding against her.
