Docs link Trump Org lawyer to effort to silence porn star

Stormy daniels donald trump statement

She doesn't list a goal amount, so we called Stormy's lawyer, Michael Avenatti, and asked how much he's billed so far - to get a sense of what the final bill might be.

Martin replied to inquiries from CNN and The Wall Street Journal, which broke the story, with a statement from the company: "The Trump Organization is not representing anyone and, with the exception of one of its California based attorneys in her individual capacity facilitating the initial filing ... the company has had no involvement in the matter".

The mother of Stormy Daniels, a porn star in the center of a controversy roiling President Donald Trump's second year in office, said she is a staunch supporter of the President.

Clifford allegedly had a sexual relationship with Trump that began back in 2006, and Clifford signed a non-disclosure agreement with Cohen in October 2016 that barred her from publicly discussing the alleged affair. Cohen established the company shortly before the 2016 election.

The White House has also denied that Trump ever carried on an affair with Daniels. Now, that once-secret deal is part of the public record, attached to her lawsuit filed last week in Los Angeles Superior Court against the president. Trump's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, who worked at the Trump Organization through the election, has said he paid $130,000 to Daniels out of his own pocket, dipping into a home equity line of credit. Cohen paid her $130,000 through an LLC, and Trump has denied the affair and any involvement in the payment.

Martin signed the documents, which were filed February 22 as part of confidential arbitration proceedings.


"My friends all say the same thing: 'I can't believe that is the same sweet child - you took such good care of her, '" she continued.

The notion that Cohen's efforts to silence Daniels were walled off from Trump and the Trump Organization "is a complete and utter fiction", Avenatti said Wednesday night on CNN's "Anderson Cooper 360".

Avenatti says the deadline for that offer has passed with no response from either Cohen or Trump.

In related news, Avenatti told Buzzfeed that other women have contacted him about possible legal cases involving Trump, although he declined to elaborate.

Earlier this week, Clifford offered to return the $130,000 in a letter addressed to Cohen's NY firm in order for her to drop her lawsuit and dissolve her nondisclosure agreement.
