"The White House didn't engage in any wrongdoing", Shah said of Trump's behavior, adding that there was "nothing to corroborate" Daniels' intimidation claims. "And who at this hour is his lead counsel in negotiating with Robert Mueller and the special counsel's [office]?"

The White House has dismissed Daniels' story.

Rucker pointed out that Ty Cobb works for the White House, rather than for Trump personally.

In her interview, Daniels said she'd slept with Trump once, shortly after Mrs. Trump gave birth to the president's youngest son.

The New York Times on Sunday reported that Sekulow was the only lawyer of Trump's "who is working full time on the special counsel's investigation".

The White House said Monday that President Donald Trump "doesn't believe any of these accusations" made by adult film actress Stormy Daniels that she had a one-night affair with the future USA leader in 2006 and five years later was threatened to keep quiet about their alleged liaison.

"Mr Cohen had absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with any such person or incident, and does not even believe that any such person exists, or that such incident ever occurred", said a letter by Mr Cohen's attorney, Brent Blakely.


She claims she had consensual sex with Mr. Trump in 2006.

MEanwhile, Daniels' lawyer Michael Avenatti taunted Trump over the ratings for the 60 Minutes interview, which were higher than any episode in 10 years.

An attorney representing Trump's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, said there was no legal issue with a $130 thousand dollar payment Cohen made to Daniels. "I'll say that he's consistently denied the allegations".

Daniels, 39, said that she was threatened in 2011 over the affair after agreeing to speak to a USA celebrity gossip magazine. Former Playboy model Karen McDougal told Cooper in a CNN interview broadcast Thursday that her affair with Trump began at a bungalow at the Beverly Hills Hotel in 2006.

"They made it sound like I had no choice", she said.

Mrs Trump - who has not publicly responded to the claims made in Ms Daniels' interview - did not return to the White House with her husband on Sunday from Florida. It paid her $150,000 during the 2016 presidential election.

Daniels is suing to void a non-disclosure agreement that she signed for the payment because it was not signed by Trump himself.
