US President sued by pornstar
YEREVAN, MARCH 7, ARMENPRESS. A new lawsuit filed by the porn star known as Stormy Daniels claims US President Donald Trump never signed a hush agreement regarding an alleged sexual encounter between the two and therefore the agreement is void, CNN reports.
According to the legal complaint Trump's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, signed the document on behalf of the President instead.
The porn star, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, claims in the lawsuit to have had an affair with Trump several years prior to his presidency. However, the lawsuit claims that when he was running for office and multiple women were coming forward to share stories of their own alleged encounters with the then-Republican presidential candidate, Cohen intervened in an attempt to keep Clifford from coming forward as well.
"Despite Mr. Trump's failure to sign the Hush Agreement, Mr. Cohen proceeded to cause $130,000.00 to be wired to the trust account of Ms. Clifford's attorney. He did so even though there was no legal agreement and thus no written nondisclosure agreement whereby Ms. Clifford was restricted from disclosing the truth about Mr. Trump," the document states.
The lawsuit says Cohen has continued his attempts at silencing Clifford -- including as recently as February 27, 2018.
Just weeks before the 2016 election, Cohen reportedly created a private LLC to pay off Clifford, The Wall Street Journal reported in January.
