Stormy Daniels 'physically threatened over Donald Trump affair,' her lawyer claims

Stormy Daniels 'physically threatened over Donald Trump affair,' her lawyer claims

Before that, Harder had represented pro wrestler Hulk Hogan in his lawsuit against Gawker over its publication of a sex tape involving him.

He did not say when the alleged threats took place.

Clifford says when Trump heard she wanted to reveal their affair to the media, he and his attorney Michael Cohen "aggressively sought to silence Ms. Clifford as part of an effort to avoid her telling the truth, thus helping to ensure he won the presidential election", the complaint states.

Trump lawyer Michael Cohen made the explosive claim in papers filed in a federal California court Friday.

"This is simply more of the same bullying tactics from the president and Mr. Cohen", Avenatti said. They say they intend to file a petition with the federal court to force the matter back into private arbitration as quickly as possible. In arbitration, EC is seeking compensatory damages, liquidated damages and injunctive relief.

Since then, Avenatti tweeted another photo, this time showing Stormy and Anderson Cooper facing each other in an interview setting.

Cohen said he had used a line of credit based on the value of his own home to gather $130,000 to pay Clifford in a personal capacity.

Earlier on Friday, Avenatti told MSNBC and CNN that Daniels had been physically threatened and warned to remain silent about her relationship with Trump.

He spoke to both CNN's New Day and the Associated Press about the allegations but stopped short of providing more details. He said he was "confident" that viewers would come away from the interview believing that Daniels' side of the story is credible.

However, at the beginning of March 2018, Stormy Daniels sued President Trump to get the non-disclosure agreement thrown out on the grounds of it being invalid, since Trump allegedly never signed it himself.

In a letter to Trump's private lawyer Michael Cohen on Monday, Clifford offered to send $130,000 to an account designated by Trump so she could be released from a non-disclosure agreement she signed in October 2016.

Mr Trump has also obtained a restraining order against the adult film actress to try to prevent her sharing "confidential information" about their alleged relationship.

Daniels claimed the affair with Trump went down in 2006, and lasted for months, while the now-president was married to his third wife Melania.

"I think that when the American people hear from my client who will provide details - very specific details related to this threat - they will conclude, as I have, that this was not a random threat by some wing nut ... out of the blue", he told Tapper.
