Stormy Daniels physically threatened by Trump’s representative, says his lawyer

Stormy Daniels' attorney says she was physically threatened by someone representing President Trump. The lawyer for adult film actress Michael Avenatti said on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" show on Friday that someone representing Mr. Trump physically threatened his client, but declined to reveal any names.

Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, is suing Mr. Trump and Mr. Trump's attorney, Michael Cohen, in an attempt to dissolve his confidentiality agreement. Clifford says the pact is not valid because Mr. Trump did not sign his signature in a 2016 silence agreement.

A hearing for the trial was scheduled July 12 in Los Angeles.

The saga of Stormy Daniels continues to plague a White House that would prefer not to take questions about history during White House daily reports. The White House has denied the alleged case of 2006.

In February, Cohen admitted to paying $ 130,000 of its own funds to Clifford in 2016, alleging that the Trump Organization had nothing to do with that. But Cohen uses an email from the Trump Organization to organize negotiations for the NDA.
