Donald Trump sued for defamation by adult film actress Daniels

Stormy Daniels sues Trump over “con job” tweet about forensic sketch

Adult-film star Stormy Daniels on Monday filed a lawsuit against US President Donald Trump for defamation.

Stephanie Clifford, who goes by the stage name Stormy Daniels, filed the lawsuit in federal court in NY on Monday.

It centers on an tweet from April 18 in which Trump addressed her claim she was threatened to stay quiet about her affair with Trump.

[W] e filed this lawsuit against Mr. Trump for his recent irresponsible and defamatory statements about my client Stormy Daniels.

The new lawsuit claims Trump's remark is "false and defamatory" in that it "falsely attacks the veracity of Ms. Clifford's account of the threatening incident that took place in 2011". She is seeking damages in excess of $75,000.

Almost $228,000 in campaign funding has gone toward legal expenses for Trump's personal attorney Michael Cohen, ABC News reported Monday. The White House says Trump did not have a sexual encounter with Daniels, and the president has denied the other allegations as well. Trump's lawyers have not commented on the suit.

"We look forward to requiring Mr. Trump to answer questions under oath about his conduct", Avenatti told Business Insider on Monday.

Additionally, the lawsuit claims that Daniels has been exposed to death threats as a result of the president tweeting out that statement. He's well aware of what happened, and about his complicity.

Daniels is now locked in a legal battle to break from the nondisclosure agreement she signed prior to the 2016 presidential election that kept her from speaking on the alleged affair she had with Trump in 2006.

Federal Election Commission records show three payments from the Trump campaign to a firm representing Cohen for "legal consulting", ABC reported.

On Friday, a Los Angeles judge put Daniels' lawsuit to end that agreement on hold for 90 days, saying it might threaten Cohen's constitutional right against self-incrimination.

Daniels' initial case against Trump and Cohen was filed in California.

Cohen has admitted paying Daniels $130,000 of his own money as part of the non-disclosure pact.
