Lawyer: Porn star sues to clarify record on Trump affair

Lawyer: Porn star sues to clarify record on Trump affair

A porn star who has said she had sex with Donald Trump filed a lawsuit seeking to invalidate a nondisclosure agreement and "set the record straight", her lawyer said Wednesday.

Cohen contacted Daniels just after the Access Hollywood tape (the one where Trump said he would grab women in a certain area) leaked. She alleges that the agreement she signed days before the 2016 presidential election, which prevented her from discussing the alleged sexual encounters, is "null and void and of no consequence" because Trump didn't personally sign it.

Keith M. Davidson, the lawyer who represented Daniels (and another adult entertainer, Karen McDougal, who signed a similar agreement with Trump), has not offered a comment on the situation.

"We intend to pursue our recourse in the context of arbitration as agreed to by the parties and continue to categorically refute the claims alleged by Ms. Clifford and her counsel", Rosen said in a statement to Fox News. Trump married his current wife, Melania Trump, in 2005.

Cohen then reportedly obtained a temporary restraining order against Daniels, which barred her from disclosing "confidential information" related to the nondisclosure agreement signed in October 2016.




Cohen has said he paid the porn actress $130,000 out of his own pocket as part of the agreement.

Associated Press/Susan Walsh " President Trump hasn't won anything relating to Ms. Clifford", Avenatti said.

Though the arbitration case Sanders referred to may have occurred, Clifford's lawsuit called it "a bogus arbitration proceeding", and argued that Cohen initiated it without providing Clifford due process. The two used aliases to keep things a secret, with her as Peggy Peterson and Trump as David Dennison. Trump and Cohen allegedly found out her story might go public and "aggressively sought to silence" her with the "hush agreement".

The complaint, which was posted online Tuesday by her lawyer, Michael Avenatti, claimed the so-called "Hush Agreement" that Daniels signed regarding her relationship with Trump was invalid because Trump never signed it himself.
