Stormy Daniels' lawyer: 'Yes,' she had a sexual relationship with Trump

Maxine Waters Stormy Daniels should give her interpretation of Trump's mental health

Trump's lawyer Michael Cohen paid her $130,000 to stay quiet about the affair in 2016, when several women came forward with allegations of sexual misbehavior by Trump.

Daniels wants a judge to void the agreement so she can avoid being dragged by Trump's personal lawyer into an arbitration proceeding, according to a complaint filed Tuesday in Los Angeles.

Daniels' lawsuit argued that the "hush agreement" meant to hide their alleged affair was invalid because Trump never signed it.

"To be clear, the attempts to intimidate Ms. Clifford into silence and "shut her up" in order to "protect Mr. Trump" continue unabated", the lawsuit said.

The agreement included as an exhibit in Tuesday's filing is signed by Clifford and dated October 28, 2016.

Though the arbitration case Sanders referred to may have occurred, Clifford's lawsuit called it "a bogus arbitration proceeding", and argued that Cohen initiated it without providing Clifford due process. According to the lawsuit, the relationship included "at least one "meeting" with Mr. Trump in a bungalow at the Beverly Hills hotel".

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

"Neither the Trump Organization nor the Trump campaign was a party to the transaction with Ms. Clifford, and neither reimbursed me for the payment, either directly or indirectly", Cohen said in a statement at the time.

"The idea that an attorney would go off on his own, without his client's knowledge and engage in this type of negotiation and enter into this type of agreement, quite honestly I think is ludicrous", Avenatti said.

Adult film actress Stormy Daniels.

"She believes it's important that the public learn the truth about what happened", he said.

The president has not publicly commented on the alleged affair, which is said to have occurred in the months after his third wife, Melania Trump, gave birth to their son Barron.

The lawsuit landed on the same day that The Post reported that special counsel Robert Mueller III requested documents and interviewed witnesses about incidents involving Cohen. "And second, did he know about the payment and the agreement?" said Avenatti, reached by phone Tuesday evening.

The president has never addressed the alleged relationship with Clifford publicly, and the White House has side-stepped questions about it with spokesperson Raj Shah telling members of the press he had never asked the president about the alleged relationship.

Years later, during Trump's presidential campaign, he and his attorney Michael Cohen "aggressively sought to silence" Daniels, allegedly to ensure Trump was elected president.

The agreement contains numerous provisions about public disclosure of confidential information, texts, and and images.
