Stormy Daniels, the porn actress who said that she was paid to keep silent about her affair with Donald Trump, filed a lawsuit against the president Tuesday alleging that he never signed the nondisclosure agreement that his lawyer arranged with her.
According to Daniels’ lawsuit, president Trump’s lawyer, Michael Cohen, filed for arbitration in Los Angeles last week to enforce the “hush agreement” that required the porn star to keep quiet about her alleged affair with Trump. The civil suit went on to say that her agreement is not valid because, while Daniels and Cohen signed it, Trump never did.
Stephanie Clifford, known in the adult industry as Stormy Daniels, also sued Essential Consultants LLC, a company which Cohen had set up days before the November 2016 election to pay Daniels $130 thousand for her silence.
Daniels had signed that agreement as well as a side letter agreement using her professional name on October 28, 2016. Cohen signed the document on the same day.
According to the lawsuit, Trump was aware of the agreement and that the money was put in place to influence the election outcome. The Federal Election Commission filed two complaints about this matter, claiming that the payment violated election law because it was not reported as an in-kind campaign donation.
“Mr. Trump, with the assistance of his attorney, Mr. Cohen, aggressively sought to silence Ms. Clifford as part of an effort to avoid her telling the truth, thus helping to ensure the presidential election.” The lawsuit reads.
Under the “hush agreement” Daniels was forced to give Trump every copy of every text and email that she ever exchanged with him as well as photos of Trump that she had. The deal also prevented the porn actress from ever communicating with the president or his family “for any reason whatsoever”. In addition, Daniels had to give Cohen the names of everyone with whom she’d ever shared images or correspondence about their affair.
Daniels alleged that she had sex with Trump after they met at a golf tournament at Lake Tahoe in 2006, shortly after his wife, Melania, gave birth to their son Barron.
