Porn star offers to repay $130k in dispute over alleged Trump affair

Stormy Daniels offers to return money to 'tell her story' of alleged Trump affair Stormy Daniels' lawyer on potential Trump photos, texts, videos: "no comment"

Stormy Daniels, an adult movie star, has offered to repay 130K dollar to the United States of America Donald Trump to buy her way out from a contract that prohibits her from discussing her decade-old affair.

Avenatti in a letter to Cohen, a copy of which was seen by Reuters, said the actress would wire the funds to an account of Trump's choosing by Friday. Trump has denied he had an affair with Clifford.

By now, that agreement is well known: Porn actress Stephanie Clifford, known professionally as Stormy Daniels, received $130,000 to stay mum about the alleged sexual relationship.

Clifford says she "began an intimate relationship with Mr. Trump in the summer of 2006 in Lake Tahoe and continued her relationship with Mr. Trump well into the year 2007".

On Monday, Avenatti sent a letter on Clifford's behalf to Cohen's law firm in NY, offering to return the $130,000 on March 16 "to resolve all pending disputes, including the lawsuit and arbitration", according to the letter shared by multiple news outlets.

The letter asks that no action be taken to prevent the airing of an interview that the actor - real name Stephanie Clifford - recently recorded with CNN journalist Anderson Cooper for the CBS news program 60 Minutes, for which Cooper is a regular contributor.

Common Cause filed amended complaints Monday with the Federal Election Commission and Justice Department.


Daniels would also be allowed to "publish any text messages, photos and/or videos relating to the President that she may have in her possession, all without fear of retribution and legal liability for damages", it said.

Neither Cohen nor lawyers who represent him responded to requests for comment Monday.

"Mr Cohen and the president should accept this proposal and allow Ms Clifford to tell her side", her lawyer, Michael Avenatti, said.

The lawsuit claimed the "hush agreement" that was signed days before the 2016 presidential election is legally invalid because it was only signed by Clifford and Mr Cohen and not by Mr Trump.

The letter is also being sent to Lawrence Rosen, an attorney who has identified himself as representing Cohen, and to EC LLC, a company Cohen formed in connection to the agreement and the payment made to Clifford in October 2016.

Clifford could be subjected to a $1 million penalty if she broke the nondisclosure agreement she signed.
