Stormy revelations on Trump’s PornStar Gate

A new lawsuit filed by the porn star known as Stormy Daniels claims President Donald Trump never signed a hush agreement regarding an alleged sexual encounter between the two and therefore the agreement is void, a CCN News report said on Wednesday.

According to the legal complaint filed in California state court and tweeted out by her lawyer on Tuesday, Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, signed the document on behalf of the President instead, the CNN report added.

The porn star, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, claims in the lawsuit to have had an affair with Trump several years prior to his presidency.

However, the lawsuit claims that when he was running for office and multiple women were coming forward to share stories of their own alleged encounters with the then-Republican presidential candidate, Cohen intervened in an attempt to keep Clifford from coming forward as well.

“Despite Trump’s failure to sign the Hush Agreement, Cohen proceeded to cause $130,000 to be wired to the trust account of Clifford’s attorney. He did so even though there was no legal agreement and thus no written nondisclosure agreement whereby Clifford was restricted from disclosing the truth about Trump,” the document states.

The lawsuit says Cohen has continued his attempts at silencing Clifford — including as recently as February 27, 2018.

“To be clear, the attempts to intimidate Clifford into silence and ‘shut her up’ in order to ‘protect Trump’ continue unabated,” the lawsuit states.

“For example, only days ago on or about February 27, 2018, Trump’s attorney Mr Cohen surreptitiously initiated a bogus arbitration proceeding against Ms Clifford in Los Angeles. Remarkably, he did so without even providing Clifford with notice of the proceeding and basic due process.”

A defence lawyer representing Cohen did not respond to requests for comment on Tuesday.
Just weeks before the 2016 election, Cohen reportedly created a private LLC to pay off Clifford, The Wall Street Journal reported in January.

Last month, Cohen admitted to making a payment to Clifford, writing in a statement: “Neither the Trump Organisation nor the Trump campaign was a party to the transaction with Clifford, and neither reimbursed me for the payment, either directly or indirectly.”

The lawsuit says Cohen’s February statement was issued “without any consent by Clifford, thus evidencing Cohen’s apparent position (at least in that context) that no binding agreement was in place.”

Following initial reports that Cohen had made the payment, he said in a statement that Trump “vehemently denies” any encounter between the two.
