Trump’s lawyer says he paid for Stormy Daniels from the pocket
Michael Cohen says he paid $ 130,000 out of his own pocket, the porn star, chief national correspondent Ed Henry reports from Washington.
Adult film star Stormy Daniels has confirmed a lawsuit against President Trump’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen on Monday for insulting Fox News.
Daniels’ suit came just hours after Cohen’s attorney, Brent Blakely, sent a cease and desist letter to Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, you are asking for it, all other “false and defamatory” statements about Cohen after her tell-all 60 Minutes interview on Sunday night.
Daniels’ lawyer Michael Avenatti, on Monday, filed a slander lawsuit against Cohen in California.
“This case just became a lot more problematic for the President, and Mr. Cohen,” Avenatti told Fox News.
Blakely did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.
Cohen has denied that a man was threatened with a stake in Daniels’ statement that her in Las Vegas in 2011, she warns, “leave Trump alone.”
White HOUSE: STORMY DANIELS IS NOT BELIEVE ‘INCONSISTENT’ TRUMP, THAT THEIR CLAIMS ARE “PRECISE”
But, the lawsuit said Cohen’s denial represented a defamatory statement against Daniels.
“It was fairly understood, Mr. Cohen meant to convey, that Mrs. Clifford is a liar,” read the complaint. “Mr Cohen, from the testimony it is to know, was false or had serious doubts as to the truth of the statements.”
The White house on Monday blasted Daniels as “inconsistent”, and said President Trump believe that their claims were “accurate.”
“The President does not believe any of the claims Mrs Daniels was in the interview last night was accurate,” White House Deputy press secretary Raj Shah said on Monday.
“The President has a strong, clear and consistent, these allegations are denied. The only one is the inconsistent one who claims,” Shah added.

In reference to Daniels’ “inconsistency,” Shah referred to a Declaration signed, which is denied by the adult film-star in January, any kind of sexual or romantic affair.
“I have recently become aware of the fact that certain news media that had claimed that I have a sexual and/or romantic affair with Donald Trump many, read many, many years ago,” the statement signed by Daniels. “I am stating with complete clarity that this is absolutely false. My employment with Donald Trump was limited to a few public appearances and nothing more. If I met Donald Trump, he was friendly, professional and complete gentleman to me and EVERYONE in my presence.”
In the last few months, though, Daniels’ has moved position. On “60 minutes”, when asked why you signed that statement, if you knew that it was wrong, Daniels said, she felt intimidated.
Cohen said he paid Daniels $ 130,000 in exchange for their silence days before the 2016 presidential elections.
