Daniels's lawyer: Some alleged incidents took place during Trump presidency

Donald Trump and those closest to him have tried to "intimidate and bully" adult film star Stormy Daniels, according to her attorney, who said a filing Friday night by the president's lawyer claiming his client owes Trump $20 million is just the latest example.

Stephanie Clifford, who uses the stage name Stormy Daniels, arrives to perform at the Solid Gold Fort Lauderdale strip club in Pompano Beach, Florida.

Daniels filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles last week that sought to invalidate the agreement so she could "set the record straight" and has offered to return the £100,000 she was paid for agreeing not to discuss the relationship.

Ms. Clifford's initial deal has struck legal experts for its onerous terms, including its provision that she would be responsible for "liquidated damages" of $1 million for each breach of the agreement.

"They are now attempting to remove this case to federal ct in order to increase their chances that the matter will be decided in private arbitration, thus hiding the truth from the public", he tweeted.

Attorney Michael Avenatti, who represents Daniels, said on Friday, "This is simply more of the same bullying tactics from the president and Mr Cohen".

Mr Avenatti said more details would be revealed in an interview taped with 60 Minutes.

Clifford has alleged she had affair with Trump that began in 2006 and lasted several months.

Clifford said Monday that she has offered to repay the money as long as she can speak openly about the situation.

Avenatti told Reuters yesterday that six women had been in touch with his law firm to describe relationships with Trump. Harder appeared to be seeking to answer a key challenge from Ms. Clifford's lawyer, Mr. Avenatti, that in failing to sign the original deal, Mr. Trump was not bound by it.

"I am highly confident that when [the American people] have an opportunity to hear from my client, when they have an opportunity to observe her body language and hear what she has to say that they will conclude that she is absolutely credible, and they will conclude that she has a significant amount of veracity and is to be believed", he said.

But, she said, "obviously we take the safety and security of any person seriously" and "certainly would condemn anyone threatening any individual".

The lawsuit claimed the "hush agreement" that was signed days before the 2016 presidential election is legally invalid because it was only signed by Clifford and Cohen and not by Trump.

Until now, Mr. Trump had stayed out of the legal dispute, leaving it to Mr Cohen to publicly deny Ms Clifford's claims.

The White House press secretary, Sarah Sanders, has rejected the notion that Trump approved the payment to Clifford.
