On Monday, porn actress, Stormy Daniels, reportedly offered to return $130 thousand she received in 2016 from president Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, as to publicly disclose her alleged affair with Mr. Trump.
Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, claims to have had an affair with Trump which started in July 2006 after the two had met at a celebrity golf tournament at Lake Tahoe. Once the real-estate mogul turned political candidate was about to enter the 2016 elections, Trump reportedly tasked his personal attorney to pay the porn star $130 thousand to buy her silence.
Now, Stormy Daniels seeks to end her deal to keep quiet about her alleged affair with Trump. According to the letter which was sent to Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, from Ms. Clifford’s lawyer, Michael Avenatti, the porn actress is willing to wire the money into an account of Mr. Trump’s choosing by Friday.
Mr. Avenatti set another deadline for Tuesday to give Mr. Cohen time to answer to Daniels’ offer.
According to the letter, if Cohen were to accept the payment, Daniels’ contract would be “deemed null and void”. More so, she would be allowed to speak openly and freely about her relationship with Trump including the “attempts to silence her. The termination of the contract would also allow her to 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”.
In addition, the letter seeks an agreement that neither Trump nor Cohen’s shell company, Essentials Consulting LLC, used to pay Daniels, would attempt to block the broadcast of an interview with the porn star that Daniels taped with “60 Minutes” last week.
The letter was also sent to a lawyer working on the case with Cohen, Lawrence S. Rosen.
