Trump lawyer seeks $20m damages from Stormy Daniels - filing

President Trump Sues To Move Porn Actress Case. Claims $20M Violation Of Secrecy Deal

In a letter to Michael Cohen on Monday, actress Stephanie Clifford, who uses the stage name Stormy Daniels, offered to send $130,000 to an account designated by Trump to release her from a non-disclosure agreement she signed in October 2016.

President Trump's lawyers filed two motions on Friday in the United States District Court in California, where Daniels sued to get out of a nondisclosure agreement to stay quiet about her affair with Trump ahead of the election.

The Friday court filing seeks to move Daniels' case from a state-level court to federal court in Los Angeles.

The court document also says Essential Consultants plans to file a "petition to compel arbitration".

Clifford's suit says that Trump never signed the agreement, making it null and void.

Cohen obtained a preliminary restraining order against Clifford from an arbitrator in late February, though she does not believe she is bound by the order.

In its motion, Mr. Trump's legal team indicates that it considers her liable for $20 million, for 20 breaches it did not detail.

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

According to RealtechVR: "The port is relying on Steam because we won't provide game data". No word has been given yet about remastering other games in the series.

Attorney Charles Harder - best known for representing Hulk Hogan in a successful lawsuit against Gawker, which resulted in its bankruptcy - is handling the legal case against Daniels on the president's behalf. Mr. Trump's representatives have denied the allegations that he had an affair with Ms. Clifford.

He then added: "The fact that a sitting president is pursuing over $20M in bogus "damages" against a private citizen, who is only trying to tell the public what really happened, is remarkable. We are NOT going away and we will NOT be intimidated".

The moves by the Trump legal team came just a day after it was reported that CBS's "60 Minutes" interview with Clifford and her attorney will air March 25.

As the battle between Stormy Daniels and Michael Cohen/President Trump continues, the porn star has raked up quite a bit of dough to help cover her legal expenses.

Clifford could face a $1 million penalty if she breaks the non-disclosure agreement.

I need funds to pay for: attorneys' fees; out-of-pocket costs associated with the lawsuit, arbitration, and my right to speak openly; security expenses; and damages that may be awarded against me if I speak out and ultimately lose to Mr. Trump and Mr. Cohen.

He told Reuters on Friday that six women had been in touch with his law firm to describe relationships with Trump, and that two had signed nondisclosure agreements.
