STORMY DANIELS SUING THE PRESIDENT
Porn star Stormy Daniels aka Stephanie Clifford, filed a new lawsuit today against President Donald Trump for defamation of character when he tweeted that she was playing a "con job" on the news media.
She was already suing him to void a nondisclosure agreement that she signed to prevent her from talking about what she has said was an affair with the president in 2006.
Michael Avenatti, Daniels' lawyer, told CNBC on Monday, "Even if you're the president of the United States, you cannot simply fabricate a story in order to fit your strategic purpose. There are serious consequences for that."
Daniels suit, which seeks more than $75,000 in damages, was filed in the same courthouse where she appeared two weeks ago for a hearing involving records seized from Trump's longtime personal lawyer, Michael Cohen. Among those files seized April 9 were ones related to the $130,000 payment he gave Daniels right before the 2016 presidential election in exchange for her signing the nondisclosure agreement about Trump.
