Stormy Daniels says she was warned to keep quiet
White house President Trump says continue to deny the allegations of the adult-film-star, reaction and analysis of Axios reporter Alayna Treene.
On Thursday, three days before CBS’ “60 Minutes” aired an interview with adult film star Stormy Daniels about her alleged 2006 sexual encounter with Donald Trump and the alleged threats, not to mention the fact, her lawyer on Twitter a mysterious image of a CD or DVD.
“If ‘a picture is worth a thousand words,” how many words is this worth?”, Michael Avenatti asked, later, the hashtags “#60minutes,” “#pleasedenyit” and “#basta” (Italian for “enough”).
On Monday, a lawyer argued that Avenatti had opened himself up to criminal charges, if the disc rotates to a shot of Trump, and Daniels, as has been speculated.

In one piece, law & crime, Robert Barnes argued that Avenatti and Daniels could be on the hook for illegally recording Trump — a crime in California, where the so-called “two-party consent” is required, the recording of private conversations-as well as invasion of privacy, and disclosure of “revenge porn” when the tape shows the sexual activity between Daniels and Trump.

Fox News judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano, and notes that he had no idea what was said on the disc, on Monday, that Avenatti “can threaten all he wants, but if he goes to court and says:” I have something ” and the material was illegally acquired, then he has serious problems on his hands.”
Los Angeles defender Ken White, a former Federal Prosecutor, told Fox News that he believe that Avenatti would be made responsible for the material on the disc, although he added, “I suppose, hypothetically, that Daniels could be sued over it.” White even describe Avenatti first tweet as a “posturing and stupid,” and show the “questionable professionalism.”
Daniels received a $ 130,000 payment days before the 2016 presidential election for her silence about the alleged encounter and the ineffectiveness of a confidentiality agreement that they signed. Trump’s personal attorney, Michael Cohen, said he paid $ 130,000 out of the bag, while the assertion of Trump sex with the porn actress had never had.

Napolitano said he thought In the wrong, had earlier this month when he sued to invalidate the confidentiality agreement in Federal court, alleges that Trump had never signed an agreement.
“He should have said so are the same as the agreement was already void,” Napolitano. “It [would have] Cohen, back to the wall.”
In the Wake of Daniels’ interview with “60 minutes,” attorney Kyle Bristow argued that Trump had a case to sue Daniels for the so-called “specific performance” and to pursue liquidated damages. According to Bristow, the agreement in force at the time Daniels received the money and might be enforceable against her.
“If you look at the interviews it clear that a breach of the agreement,” Bristow said, “and I don’t think the First amendment applies to… the people have the right to conclude contracts, where their rights are waived.”
White said, if he has the advice of Daniels, he would tell her, “keep in mind what your goal is.”
“If your goal is chaos and celebrity and money, then this is the right way to go about it,” he said. “If your goal is to win in court, then this kind of thing is not please most of the judges.”
