Stormy Daniels offers to return $130K

Stormy Daniels is formally offering to give back the $130,000 she got as a result of an agreement her lawyer calls a "hush agreement" not to talk about an alleged affair with Donald Trump.

The offer puts the president and Cohen - who deny that Trump had an affair with Clifford - in a challenging position.

Daniels sued Trump last week, saying he didn't sign the agreement. Cohen admitted to making the October 2016 payment to Daniels but said the money came out of his own pocket, and claimed that neither Trump or anyone affiliated with his former campaign or business had any knowledge of the transferred funds.

"Daniels could then "(a) speak openly and freely about her prior relationship with the President and the attempts to silence her and (b) use any publish any text messages, photos and/or videos relating to the President that she may have in her possession, all without fear of retribution and legal liability for damages".

Donald Trump had a 2006 affair with porn star Stormy Daniels and is still cheating on his wife, author Michael Wolff asserts.

Cruz easily won the Texas election Tuesday and will take on O'Rourke in the November general election. That said, it came to Colbert to do his own version of this parody song in response to Cruz.


Avenatti told NBC on Monday: 'This has never been about the money'. The American people should be permitted to judge for themselves who is shooting straight with them and who is misleading them.

The matter has become so explosive, Cohen now even has a lawyer, Lawrence Rosen, representing him. Our offer seeks to allow this to happen'.

Clifford is potentially violating the nondisclosure agreement, which means her legal battle with Trump's lawyers could be coming to a head.

In the 1971 Pentagon Papers case, the Supreme Court ruled that the New York Times and The Washington Post could not be stopped from publishing documents related to USA military actions in Vietnam, despite the government's argument that such reporting would endanger national security.

Lata Nott, executive director of the Newseum Institute's First Amendment Center, said the president's lawyers would have to convince a court that "whatever is about to be aired would cause immediate, irreparable harm to the U.S. If the Pentagon Papers didn't meet that standard, can't imagine that this "60 Minutes" segment with Stormy Daniels would".
