Counsel tells what triggered porn star to sue Trump

Daniels said the video prompted women to come forward with "personal stories about their sexual encounters with Mr. Trump", and she, too, wanted to share her story. She even issued a statement refuting claims of a sexual relationship and the payment of hush money.

The lawsuit claimed Daniels and Trump had an "intimate relationship" during the summer of 2006 in Lake Tahoe, and it continued "well into the year 2007", despite past contradictory statements from Daniels.

Both Cohen and The White House have not responded to requests for comments on the situation.

According to Avenatti, the hush agreement is void because Trump didn't personally sign the contract - only the former adult film actress and the president's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, signed.

Nine people have been arrested in connection with the accident, which reportedly left the place heavily damaged. A ninth man, in his 30s, has been arrested for handling stolen property.

One little-noticed provision in the agreement that was revealed Tuesday night expressly bars Daniels from communicating with Trump or his family 'for any reason'.

The lawsuit notes that attempts to "intimidate" Daniels "into silence and "shut her up" in order to "protect Mr. Trump" continue unabated".

Clifford's lawsuit alleges that Cohen had "surreptitiously initiated a bogus arbitration proceeding" against Clifford and within the last week used an "improper and procedurally defective arbitration proceeding hidden from public view". "I$3 t strains credulity to conclude that Mr. Cohen is acting on his own accord and without the express approval and knowledge of his client Mr. Trump". She said Clifford's lawsuit seeking to nullify a nondisclosure agreement had already been handled.

Trumps lawyer, Michael Cohen, and Daniels attorney at the time, Keith Davidson, negotiated what the lawsuit calls a "hush agreement" in which she would be paid $130,000.

Daniels added: "Rumours that I have received hush money from Donald Trump are completely false".

A manager for Daniels said last month that the actress believed that Cohen's acknowledgement of the payment have broken the nondisclosure agreement, leaving her free to talk about the affair.

Using the pseudonyms Peggy Peterson and David Dennison, Clifford and Trump were to sign the agreement, along with Essential Consultants. Among the more salacious details of her claim was that she spanked Trump on his butt with a rolled up copy of Forbes magazine, During this time Melania Trump had recently given birth to Barron Trump.

Common Cause, a government watchdog group, filed a complaint with the Federal Election Commission stating that the payment was an in-kind contribution to the Trump campaign.

The attorney for Trump lawyer Michael Cohen told Fox News that there was a settlement agreement involving an arbitration judge, which Daniels - whose real name is Stephanie Clifford - violated by filing her lawsuit Tuesday. The extent to which her information may be able to damage Trump and his presidency remains unclear.
