Trump lawyer ignores porn star's offer to return hush money

Trump lawyer ignores porn star's offer to return hush money

Daniels signed a non-disclosure agreement in October 2016 which she says was to keep her quiet about her tryst with Trump, but the notary public-who is in Texas as Daniels owns a home in Forney-only stamped the document and failed to also sign and date it as required. BuzzFeed had reported that Trump's lawyers were considering seeking an injunction to stop it. By sending the money to Trump, it would involve the President - who has never acknowledged the agreement or the affair - in the case.

The source said Trump is being told by advisers not to fight Daniels' decision to break a confidentiality agreement because it would make him look guilty.

Regardless of whether Cohen accepts Clifford's offer, the money is the subject of a complaint by the watchdog group Common Cause to the Federal Election Commission.

Avenatti in a letter to Cohen, a copy of which was seen by Reuters, said the actress would wire the funds to an account of Trump's choosing by Friday.

The exchange would allow Clifford to speak publicly about her allegations of an affair with Trump, and according to the letter "use and publish any text messages, photos and/or videos relating to the President that she may have in her possession, all without fear of retribution and/or legal liability for damages".

Stormy Daniels claims that she signed the sworn statement over the alleged affair with Donald Trump because of "intimidation and coercive tactics", but a witness of the signing is refuting her claims as simply "asinine".

On his highly-anticipated return to the tour after right elbow surgery, Djokovic looked a shadow of his former self. "I think it's only (a matter of) time to get where he deserves to be", said Del Potro.

Clifford could face a $1 million penalty if she breaks the nondisclosure agreement.

The White House referred the matter to Trump's personal attorney for comment.

The offer from Avenatti came after White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders told a briefing last week that Trump had won an arbitration proceeding against Clifford.

He added that Daniels felt pressured into signing the NDA that would eventually prevent her from speaking about the affair at all beyond hints and indirect responses, a claim her lawsuit against Trump implies as well.

CNN's Andrew Kaczynski reported Tuesday that Daniels was asked to write a list of famous men she'd had sexual relationships with when appearing on a Florida radio show hosted by "Bubba the Love Sponge Clem".
