Stormy Daniels Is Willing to Return $130000 Hush Money

Share

Daniels' attorney, Michael Avenatti, penned a letter Monday, obtained by Fox News, to Trump's longtime personal attorney who made the six-figure payment and to his attorney.

A lawyer for the actress Stormy Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, sent a letter on Monday (March 12) to attorneys for Trump proposing to wire US$130,000 (S$171,000) by March 16.

If the offer is accepted, it would deem the NDA null and void, CNN reports. Although a judge might rule that Daniels must stay quiet until the lawsuit reaches a conclusion, an injunction would not undo the interview she gave last week or compel CBS to pretend it didn't happen.

Although Cohen said the money came out of his own pocket, there was "no question" Trump knew about the arrangement, Avenatti said last week during an appearance on NBC News "Today". Given the hints Daniels has already dropped about the type of thing she might release to the American people if unmuzzled, Cohen would be well-advised to hire as many lawyers as possible who are smarter than he is.

In October 2016, shortly before the presidential election, Cohen paid Clifford $130,000, reportedly in exchange for her silence on her alleged sexual relationship with Trump. The two have been in the White House for a little more than a year as Donald has been marked one of the most controversial Presidents yet.

Trump hasn't addressed the claims, however his lawyer, Michael Cohen, has denied allegations of the affair.

The demand is the latest development in a week of maneuvers from Daniels' team as she seeks to abandon what she calls a "hush" agreement with Cohen and tell her story publicly. Stormy Daniels is getting multiple offers of $1 million to break her silence (and contract) on her long-term tryst with Donald Trump.

2nd lawsuit filed over lost embryos at OH fertility clinic
A second fertility clinic says thousands of frozen eggs and embryos may have been jeopardized from a freezer failure. I think this problem is far more serious than has been presented so far", said Team LGM attorney Tom Merriman.

He maintained that payout came directly from him, not from the Trump Organization or the campaign.

His lawyers are said to be considering ways to stop Stormy Daniels 60 Minute interview with Anderson Cooper airing ahead of a proposed Sunday transmission.

To thwart 60 Minutes, Trump would need to secure a separate order against CBS - a prior restraint of speech that legal precedent suggests is unconstitutional.
